Our experienced shredding specialists are available to guide you in selecting the appropriate industrial shredder for your unique requirements. We even provide on-site testing to guarantee that the chosen equipment aligns perfectly with your specific use case.

The Mechanism

TASKMASTER® industrial shredders employ two parallel counter rotating stacks of cutters that intermesh at low speed under extremely high torque. As the cam shaped cutters intermesh at close clearance, they cut, shear, tear, slice, and rip apart a variety of materials into smaller pieces, typically in a strip or chip-like output shape.

The geometry of this dual-shaft cutter also provides excellent feeding characteristics for a variety of solids. The TASKMASTER® generally  employs no sizing screen so the output particle is determined by the cutter shape. TASKMASTER® cutters are precision manufactured to exacting standards to provide optimal shredding and long life. Each TASKMASTER® is heavily constructed for low deflection or vibration and quiet operation.
