Expert shredders keep the nation shredding

Sustainability Today is delighted to award Mach Tech Services with our coveted Recycling Shredders Company of the Month Award for outstanding waste recycling shredders.

Mach Tech Services was founded in 2004 by Managing Director, Joe Hoyle, Operating Director, David Ingham, and the late Colin Wood, as a service company for industrial shredding machinery. One of its partnerships is with Austrian company Lindner Recyclingtech; this leading specialist business offers award-winning Lindner machines to recycling industry sectors. Mach Tech can supply static shredders, plants and mobile shredders to businesses.

The waste recycling sector is under scrutiny as the UK moves rapidly towards a more sustainable future. Plastic film made of polyethylene and polypropylene is often the villain in recycling, with its short product life cycle accounting for at least 40% of global waste. There is a need for efficient, robust plastic recycling and the latest Lindner Jupiter BW shredder is the best model on the market: the Superhero of shredders.

Showcasing the Lindner Jupiter BW at the K 2022 Düsseldorf Expo, Lindner Recyclingtech proudly demonstrated the shredder’s prowess to interested delegates. The latest Jupiter series expertly handles plastic film recycling for downstream NIR sorting processes. This primary shredder has a powerful countershaft drive that releases powerful rotational energy, meaning less overall energy is consumed. This precision-driven machine has a long service life, with minimal maintenance costs, making this a smart investment. With robust duo cutting counter knives and scrapers cutting plastic film into A4/A3 sizes, this is a state-of-the-art shredder for rigid plastic films. The new Jupiter BW is fitted with mesh screens, easily accessible for manually adjusting to different sizes.

Mach Tech has an impressive 27,000ft2 facility at its headquarters in Oldham, Greater Manchester. The premises has a world-leading parts facility, storing everything from nuts, bolts, washers to cutting tools. With an unrivalled range of parts for shredding machinery across the UK, Mach Tech is a one-stop shop for all your shredding needs. Within the facility, are fully operational servicing and fabrication workshops, paint shop and a dedicated sale and customer care team.

The Jupiter BW has a torque-limiting clutch, quickly protecting against drive unit damage, when foreign objects obstruct. Precision-driven sensors guide the controlled powering down of the shredder to safeguard components.

Lorenza was also proud to tell us about the apprenticeship scheme, “After a two year apprenticeship scheme, our first apprentice is now working with us as a trained Mechanical Engineer. With the added bonus of being trained directly from Lindner as well.

“By training the next generation of engineers, we are continuing to offer the same dedication to service and products that are unrivalled in quality and endurance.”

Alongside the Oldham facility, there is a sales office covering the southern sales and customer care area, offering quality specialist advice and support across all sectors. Mach Tech prides itself on offering outstanding customer service, as Lorenza outlines, “We have an open-door policy which allows interested parties onto our existing customers’ sites to see our products in application and gives the freedom to speak to existing customers about the product and our services that we provide.”

Mach-Tech Services and Lindner Shredders fit well with our practice.
