Product Portfolio Upgrade for the destruction of paper for bank notes and confidential documentation

A high security plant from Hunkeler Systeme AG shreds bank notes and confidential documentation to particles of 30 square millimetres. The system processes paper from rolls or sheets. International paper manufacturers and printers will be viewing the plant on 17th May at the Hunkeler Systeme AG headquarters in Wikon.

Hunkeler Systeme AG, on the occasion of its Security Day on 17th May, introduced a new high security plant for shredding bank notes and confidential documents. Manufacturers of paper for bank notes and stocks and bonds were invited. The guests gathered from all over the world in Wikon in Switzerland.

The high security plant shreds paper in two stages: in the first stage, a shredder turns the material in with a size of approximately 320 square millimetres (Security level P3). Via a pneumatic switch point, the particles can be transported directly to a compacter, or confidential documents can be shredded in a Granulator to particles of 30 square millimetres (Security level P5). The desired milling level is selected on the touch-monitor on the control unit.

The system processes paper either from rolls or sheets of up to performance level of 1000kg/h. Rolls are pre-shredded in a roll splitter before they are transported to the shredder via a conveyor belt (first shredding stage). Sheet products are transported to the conveyor belt via a lift- and tip device.

A filter system cleans the dust laden transport air. There is a residual dust content of less than a milligram per cubic metre of air. The filters are automatically cleaned and the dust is transported to the compactor.

The maximum security plant is completely secure and protected against unauthorised access.
