Shredder Destroys Hard Drives, Electronic Devices.

India, Aug. 15 -- Security Engineered Machinery has launched a new product, viz., 0300 Jackhammer hard drive shredder. The new unit has a small footprint (37-inch high, 45-inch wide and 21-inch deep) and is easy-to-use.

The device destroys hard drives, electronic devices (cell phones, BlackBerrys, PDAs, etc.), optical media (CDs and DVDs) and computer backup tapes. The unit includes a specially designed sawtooth and hooked cutters that can handle 125 to 500 drives per hour (depending on type), reducing them to random 1 1/2-inch shreds.

The unit can be plugged into a standard 120-volt/20-amp single-phase wall outlet and is mounted on locking swivel casters.

The product includes a mailbox-like feed door that accepts drives up to 1-inch thick and does not allow access to the cutting blades.

The other safety features of the machine include built-in electrical interlocks halting operation when the waste-removal door or cutting-head access lid is opened.

The unit also has a simple control panel on top of the unit that contains four illuminated buttons, viz., 'Start', 'Reverse', 'Stop' and 'Reset.'

The product features a built-in logic control that senses jamming as well as a system protocol to clear the jam automatically. The equipment also has a 'Bin full' indicator, notifying the user when the waste collection bin has reached its capacity.

The product is suitable for environments requiring secure destruction of lower-volume media, such as data centers, hospitals and other facilities that need to destroy confidential/sensitive information in accordance with various government regulations and industry standards.
