Why Does Your Shredder Need Annual Preventative Maintenance?

Reactively managing these assets by “Failure” is expensive and inefficient.
Most office shredder manufacturers recommend annual preventative maintenance knowing this will prevent unnecessary failure.

Properly maintained, you will experience:

  • More efficient faster shredding
  • Reduced noise levels
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Higher reliability
  • Longer operating life
  • Greater overall efficiency

Shredding at your office will be more productive and your shredders life will be greatly increased.

Bottom line is, you save time and money it’s that simple!

Synchro Gears

Without Maintenance, Failure often occurs to shredders synchronising gears from lack of lubrication. Operating under high loads, synchronising gears generate excess heat and eventually break up without adequate lubrication. There is no warning, just sudden breakage which is easily avoided with maintenance but costly to repair.
