SSD Shredders Produce .375″ Waste Particles
SSD shredders designed specifically to destroy solid state devices are available from Security Engineered Machinery. These high-torque machines use solid-steel hooked cutters to literally rip SSDs to shreds of only 0.375” to ensure that all of the data bearing flash memory chips are destroyed. Items that can be destroyed in these shredders include solid state hard drives, smartphones, cell phones, USB flash drives, compact flash, printed circuit boards and even optical discs and data tapes.
Four models are available with throughput capacities ranging from around 250 SSDs per hour up to around 1,500 SSDs per hour. The Model 0303-.375 deposits shredded waste particles in an internal collection bin. All other models feature a waste take-away conveyor to discharge particles into a large container or gaylord box.
All units feature a convenient ergonomic interface panel including a key switch, hour meter, start button and emergency e-stop. An angled feed chute with integrated flap protects operators during the feeding process. Safety interlocks prevent operation when any safety guard or panel is not in place. Large casters allow units to be moved from one location to another.
SEM SSD Shredders can be equipped with a variety of options including air filtration systems, removable feed chutes, in-feed conveyors, discharge conveyor covers and shrouds, fork pockets as well as extended warranties and preventative maintenance contracts.
