UNTHA set to reveal new shredding innovations at IFAT 2018

As a major player in the shredding technology industry, UNTHA is set to show IFAT trade visitors the solutions that can reliably and economically transform waste into valuable resources. 

Ongoing engineering developments have been taking place behind the scenes at UNTHA’s Austrian headquarters, which means the IFAT stand 127/226 (hall B6) will play host to the latest generation XR series waste shredder, this May. Designed to process different materials such as waste wood, commercial waste, bulk refuse, industrial waste or pulper ropes, the latest iteration of this technology will perform even more successfully than its predecessors.

Commenting on what IFAT delegates can expect, Peter Streinik, head of UNTHA’s waste shredding division said: “We will be presenting a stationary XR shredder with new cutting unit geometry which – with its even higher throughput rate – is specially designed for single-step processing of refuse into substitute fuel. Furthermore, numerous innovations such as a low maintenance safety clutch and more powerful drive motors, will now enable us to adapt to individual client requirements even easier than before.”

For the first time, UNTHA will also exhibit the XR mobil-e at IFAT’s VDMA Demonstration Days, enabling attendees to experience the advantages of the shredder’s electromechanical drive concept up close. Able to tackle varied applications, the machine will specifically showcase its single-step waste wood shredding capabilities during this demonstration period.

IFAT will also see the return of the high performance QR shredder, which has attracted global acclaim particularly for its plastics recycling success. The ‘intelligent pusher control’ (IPC) has proven a hot talking point, as it minimises idle time, creating not only a higher throughput capacity but also a more efficient shredding process. A further key feature of the machine is the QR’s patented multifunctional flap. This can be opened in two directions to remove foreign objects, change the cutting blade or empty the hopper, for maximum operational and maintenance ease.

For IFAT visitors looking for an indestructible ‘all-rounder’, UNTHA will be on hand to display the most established equipment in the company’s entire range – the robust RS class four-shaft shredder. The technology within this series can process difficult applications including hard drives, metal and electronic waste, and UNTHA’s largest four-shaft shredder – the RS150 – is sure to attract attention at the stand.

But IFAT will not just be about machinery for the shredding experts. UNTHA will also launch its new UNTHA Lifetime Support package, demonstrating the team’s unrivalled commitment to customer service.

“This important trade fair is the perfect platform for us to demonstrate our ability to find solutions to even the most complex waste and recycling enquiries,” emphasises Thomas Schmid, head of market communication. “Visitors will be able to discover for themselves the superb quality of our products and get specialist information from experienced sales and product managers who always have an answer to shredding problems.”

You will find UNTHA in hall B6, stand 127 / 226 and at the VDMA Demonstration Days „Biomass Preparation Technology“ at IFAT’s outdoor area.
