IDP Smart Bit Ribbon Shredder
About the ribbon shredder
The Smart Bit ribbon shredder is a fast and convenient way to dispose of used card printer ribbons. As you likely will have noticed, used ribbons contain all the printed data on the surface of the ribbon, making them harder to safely dispose of. If you’re printing staff ID, membership cards or any other form of ID, it’s vital that the used ribbons are disposed of without compromising the security of the data on them.
That’s where Smart Bit comes in! This shredder reduces your used ribbons to tiny shreds of ribbon, making the data completely irretrievable.
Smart Bit is easy to use, taking just 60 seconds to set up and start shredding. It’s easy to load, and the shredder will automatically stop when finished, or when the waste bag is full.
The shredder is a suitable size for use in office environments and can easily be moved from location to location.
How does it work?
The shredder uses something called Twisted Micro-cut Technology. Once the ribbon is inserted and the process started, it is twisted tightly before being pulled into the shredding element. This helps to ensure that all data on the used ribbon is destroyed.
The ribbon is then shredded into tiny fragments which are stored in a waste bag, which can be emptied into a normal waste bin once full.
The IDP Smart Bit is compatible with ribbons from ALL major brands including Evolis, Magicard, Fargo and of course, IDP. It is capable of shredding standard dye-sub, wax and resins ribbons from 60mm width right up to 90mm.
Smart Bit can shred up to 20 meters of ribbon per minute or 1,200 meters an hour.
There is no need for the user to continually return to the machine to empty a ribbon once shredded. The catch basin has enough space for up to 6 shredded ribbons, working of 6x 250 imprints per ribbon.
