With an industrial shredder, you can condense large amounts of leftover wood, plastic, metal turnings, or whatever materials your factory works with into compact, manageable piles for disposal. Shredding your industrial waste is the best way to keep your property free of hazardous clutter and streamline your disposal process.
Read on below for everything you need to know about industrial shredders for sale.
Types of Industrial Shredders by Material
Wood is one of the most common materials put into industrial shredders. Depending on the combination of shredders you use, you could end up with wood chips or sawdust. Using our hydraulic press, you can convert your wood scraps into high value briquettes.
Suppose your factory or industrial property is drowning in paper waste that needs to be easily recycled. In that case, our heavy-duty shredders are more than powerful enough to get the job done. Turn your paper scraps into manageable shreds that are optimal for recycling.
Cardboard can also be easily broken down into particles using our equipment that are easier to handle. Most of our industrial shredders can be adjusted to work with any of these common factory waste materials.
Industrial Plastic Shredding Machines
Plastic is an incredibly common manufacturing material, and it’s important to recycle it where you can. That’s why UMP Technika is committed to providing plastic shredding equipment to help business and factory owners manage their excess plastic with ease.
Metal is a tough material, and it’s notoriously difficult to shred. But it’s still no match for UMP Technika’s state-of-the-art industrial shredders. Ask a representative about optimizing your shredder for use with metal waste. No need to spend precious time and energy handling large amounts of rigid metal with our powerful machinery on hand.
Recently, the demand for a good hay & straw shredders has grown immensely. Biomass is the leftover waste from organic materials, such as hay, straw, leaves, roots, and stalks from plants. If you process a lot of plant material and need to manage your biomass waste, UMP Technika has a solution to take care of your business.
Our Industrial Shredding Machines
Our single-shaft shredders use a vertical feed hopper with a single rotor and hydraulic ram system where users can insert their material to be shredded. Whether your factory waste consists of wood, metal, paper, or plastic, with the correct specifications in place, the powerful industrial shredder teeth in these machines will have no problem getting the job done.
Horizontal feed shredders use rollers rather than hydraulic rams to feed material into the rotor. This system allows shredding of longer boards and cutoffs at a much higher volume than vertical feed shredders. Vibrating conveyor transports material to the shredder where feeder rotors pull it against a high speed shredding rotor.
Double Shaft Shredders
Different to the single-shaft model, the double-shaft shredder uses two shafts to pull and shred the material simultaneously. This is perfect for pre-shredding of bulk and difficult to manage materials.
If top quality fine shredding is what you are after, a Hammer Mill is what your factory needs. Whether creating uniform sawdust from wood chips, or turning raw materials into fine powder we have the solution.
Our machinery is the ideal fix for industrial properties with plenty of straw and hay with hidden potential value which can be unlocked by turning it to pellets or briquettes. The conveyor system makes it easy to load and buffer multiple bales for shredding to lose bedding.

What is the Average Cost of a Shredding Machine?
In most cases four main variables determine the price of an industrial shredder:
What material requires shredding?
Wood, hay, metal, plastics – each material behaves differently when being shredded and may require different types of shredders and blade types.
Is additional equipment needed?
Our company is happy to assist our clients with a selection of custom feeding bunkers, transporting conveyors and other equipment benefiting your efficient production process.
How much material needs to be processed per hour of work time?
Different types of shredders produce different maximum shredding volumes per work hour. Bigger, higher throughput shredders are more expensive than smaller alternatives. To give you an accurate representation of what you can expect from our equipment we offer free material testing at our manufacturing facility in Lithuania.
What is the particle size being put into the shredder and what particle size is required to come out of the shredder?
Different sizes of material require different sizes and feeding types of shredders. Long boards require horizontal feed shredders, while smaller chunks of wood work better with vertical feed shredders. Final particle size requirements also inflict the price of the product. In some cases one shredder might not be enough and two-step shredding process might be required to achieve final particle size at a quick pace.
