UNTHANEWS Welcome to the IFAT 2016! The IFAT 2016 has once more opened its gates. As the world‘s leading trade fair for environmental technology, it is certainly the most important presentation and innovation platform for this industry. True to the motto “Discovering reliable shredding technology”, UNTHA is set to present fantastic product innovations and novelties. EDITORIAL Dear readers, We are pleased to announce that 2015 was a highly successful year for UNTHA. In addition to a record turnover and highest number of employees ever, we succeeded in convincing many new customers of the competence of our solutions and our uncompromising commitment to reliability. This success confirms that we are on the right path and gives us the motivation we need to continue doing whatever we can to be more reliable than other manufacturers. Our goals for 2016 are also very ambitious: In addition to launching the innovative XR mobil-e, we will introduce the QR class, a new series of high-performance single-shaft shredders. Furthermore, we are introducing our new UNTHA Lifetime Support, a strong message to our customers that reflects our commitment to active support at all times. And we are not just investing into the expansion of our product range, but also in that of our markets and applications. By now, our sales subsidiaries in the US, UK, Poland and Germany are well-positioned and our sales operations in South America and Asia are going better than expected. We want to set new standards not just in waste wood and biomass processing, but also in plastics and metal recycling. In this edition of the UNTHA IFAT News, we would like to give you a brief overview of our products and services, report on new developments in technology and sales and outline our plans for the future. I hope you will find this interesting! Christoph Walchhofer, CMO PS: Our experienced sales and product managers will be happy to discuss your individual shredding product directly at our stand at the trade fair.

IMPRINT: Media owner, publisher and editor: UNTHA shredding technology GmbH Kellau 141, 5431 Kuchl, Austria With the QR class, UNTHA will present a new series of high-performance shredders for material recycling. These shredders are extremely resilient and remain fully operational even in the toughest conditions. The machines boast highlights such as a newly developed universal cutting unit and integrated pusher system and also stand out for ease-of-use and maintenance. Shredder specialist UNTHA is also exploring new paths when it comes to waste and waste wood recycling – visitors will be impressed by the innovative XR mobil-e, a revolutionary machine concept that links the benefits of an electro-mechanical drive with the advantages offered by a mobile system. During live demonstrations, visitors can see for themselves what this unit offers in terms of performance and versatility. A stationary X3000R will also be shown at the trade fair, a particularly powerful pre-shredder for waste processing that impresses with low operating costs and a high level of availability. Those looking for an indestructible multi-talent need look no further than the ultra-robust four-shaft RS40 shredding unit, which comes into its own with particularly tough applications such as hard drives, metals or electronic scrap. What’s more – the RS40 also complies with safety standard DIN 66399-2, thereby ensuring the standard-compliant destruction of files and data. The new UNTHA Lifetime Support will also premiere at the trade fair: Under the heading “Reliability for Life”, interested visitors have the opportunity of learning more about UNTHA’s multi-faceted range of after-sales service programmes.
