The Mechanism

TM2342 CuttersTASKMASTER industrial shredders employ two parallel counter rotating stacks of cutters that intermesh at low speed under extremely high torque. As the cam shaped cutters intermesh at close clearance, they cut, shear, tear, slice, and rip apart a variety of materials into smaller pieces, typically in a strip or chip-like output shape.

The geometry of this dual-shaft cutter also provides excellent feeding characteristics for a variety of solids. The TASKMASTER generally  employs no sizing screen so the output particle is determined by the cutter shape. TASKMASTER cutters are precision manufactured to exacting standards to provide optimal shredding and long life. Each TASKMASTER is heavily constructed for low deflection or vibration and quiet operation.
