DELMONT, PA (November
30, 2006) – Allegheny Shredders Corp., has introduced the industry’s
first single shaft grinder with an adjustable-screen. The introduction
of the Allegheny SelecShredTM represents a major development in the
document destruction and security industry because it gives mobile and
in-plant shredding operators the ability to service a wider variety
of customers faster with just a single piece of equipment.
Before the development of this equipment, operators had to manually
open the cover of their paper grinders and physically remove one screen
and replace it with another. This process, which can take fifteen minutes
or more to complete, was a significant drag on productivity. With the
new Allegheny SelecShredTM Adjustable Screen, operators can change the
screen size inside their grinders with just the simple push of a button.
This has enormous implications for mobile paper destruction companies
because it allows them to serve customers with different grinder and
document security requirements without removing and replacing their
screens between shred jobs.
In the document destruction business, some companies, such as banks,
law firms and hospitals, demand smaller screen sizes to produce a finer
(more secure) piece size of their discarded documents. However, smaller
screen can limit a grinder’s through-put capacity and add to the
cost of the service. Less security-conscious customers, on the other
hand, can opt for larger screen sizes, which facilitate greater paper
through-put and less expensive document destruction.
With the introduction of the SelecShredTM, mobile operators can now
service both types of customers in a given day, one stop after another
– or even the same customer with different security concerns for
different departments - without losing time to physically change out
their screens. This allows operators to service customers faster and
more conveniently than was previously possible, and can give them a
great marketing advantage by being able to offer double the security
for key departments without processing the entire stop at a higher-priced
