Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-1000 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

Light duty industrial shredders are ideal for warehouses looking to destroy several hundred pounds of material in a day. Revered by document destruction services, Ameri-Shred's industrial shredders offer quality engineering and solid shredding capabilities. The Series 1 strip cut industrials achieve a throughput of approximately 300-1200 lbs. each hour. Destroying not simply paper, but also plastics, cardboard, and more, the Series 1 shredders accommodate a mid to high volume of shredding per day without fail. With a 10 HP motor, the AMS-1000 runs on 3 phase power, yielding the highest throughput. Three voltages are available: 208, 230, or 460V. While the three previous Series 1 models were available in three shred widths, the Ameri-Shred AMS-1000 is only available in two strip cuts. The AMS-1000 destroys between 800-950 lbs. every hour, transforming your once solid materials into 1/4" strips. When higher volumes are required, this model tackles an impressive 1000-1200 lbs per hour and converts your items into 5/16"_x009d_ pieces.

The 16"_x009d_ infeed conveyor pulls your documents and items towards the 5"_x009d_ inch steel paddle wheel crusher, located just in front of the cutters. This wheel crusher then pushes materials into the precision ground A-2 steel cutters for destruction. High volumes of paper, DVD's, credit cards, floppy disks, plastic bottles, even corrugated cardboard are all no match for these hardened cutters. They shred through these items easily and smoothly. A pull-out chaff reject drawer collects residue from the input conveyor belt, preventing paper to build up around the motor. Efficiency is increased when the Ameri-Shred AMS-1000 is equipped with either the optional output conveyor or bag holder. These output conveyors can be customized to discharge waste into dumpsters, containers, trucks, and more. Bag holders decrease time spent on cleanup after each shredding project.

In any busy warehouse, there may come a time when this shredder needs to be moved. At 1525 lbs., this isn't your average office shredder. Mobility casters extinguish the previously arduous task of relocating this unit. In no time, the operator can easily shift this shredder from place to place thanks to these heavy duty casters. Like many of these American made industrial shredders, the Ameri-Shred AMS-1000's rugged, all steel construction proves durable and reliable.
