A key element of their business is the delivery of goods to their customers on time and in perfect condition. For some time MotorNuts had been buying packing materials as well as shredding paper to fill and pad out their customers parcels, to protect the goods during the delivery stage. This was proving both costly and messy.

The Facts

MotorNuts is a fast growing business selling car parts and accessories online. They had been buying packing materials as well as shredding paper to fill and pad out parcels proving both costly and messy to their business. The Solution MotorNuts were recommended was an HSM ProfiPack P425 cardboard recycling shredder which perforates cardboard when it is fed into the machine. This helped them recycle and reuse their existing cardboard waste. The HSM ProfiPack P425 packaging machine also has the added benefit of helping the business to reduce their carbon footprint. They no longer had a requirement to use plastic such as bubble wrap to protect the goods when they were sent out to customers. Cardboard was just as effective in protecting the items and could be rolled to create void filling, thus eliminating movement of the items during transit. With no added costs of packaging to their business, MotorNuts were thrilled with the outcome of using the HSM ProfiPack P425 stand-alone device

The Result

As soon as MotorNuts saw the potential cost savings to their business as they no longer needed to buy expensive plastic packaging such as bubble wrap to send out the goods, they could confirm they had reduced their overheads and carbon footprint. The feedback on the German engineered HSM ProfiPack P425 packaging shredder machine was exceptional. It was both smooth and easy to operate and was backed by a two year warranty. MotorNuts saved money and waste – never short of boxes in which their stock arrived, they now perforate and reuse the leftover cardboard from the warehouse.

The Range

HSM Profipack shredders are available in 2 main forms: the HSM Profipack C400 cardboard recycling shredder; and the HSM Profipack P425 cardboard recycling shredder. The latter is available as a 240v, standard 3-pin plug version or a 415v, 3-phase version and with or without dust extraction kit for attachment to an external dust extractor.

Dust extractors are not essential for use with a cardboard recycling shredder, but they are preferred by some users. Cardboard recycling shredders do not produce very much dust and there are no health and safety implications for the small amounts produced. Over time, you might experience a build-up of a film of dust on the unit itself and other surfaces in its proximity. In a regular warehouse or workshop environment, this would not be noticeable against normal dust build-up from other sources. Dust extraction is only really required where your customers, recipients or goods may be especially sensitive to the presence of very small amounts of dust in the shipping carton; your cardboard shredder itself is located in a confined space with poor ventilation; or you have very sensitive electronic equipment in the vicinity of the unit.

HSM Profipack cardboard shredders are high-performance packaging machines for processing a number of layers of cardboard into a padding mat or padded filling material. They are very robust, high quality units made in Germany with a 2-year on-site warranty as standard. The full range can be seen here.
