Shredder capacity

Shredding capacity refers to the thickness of paper and the maximum number of sheets that the shredder can handle at one time, while the amount of shredding is the throughput of the machine itself. General shredders can shred 13-15 sheets each time, and large shredders can shred 60-70 sheets each time. Generally, the better the shredding effect, the less shredding capacity. For example, the nominal shredding capacity of a certain brand of shredder is A4, 70g, 7-9 sheets, which means that the shredder can handle shredding thickness of Seven to nine sheets of 70g A4 paper. Ordinary offices use A4, 70g, and 3-4 sheets to meet the needs of daily work. If it is a large office, you need to choose a shredder with appropriate format and faster speed according to your needs. Existing large shredders can generally reach 60-70 sheets each time.
When shredding paper, it must be used according to the shredding capacity that the machine can withstand, so as to avoid abnormal paper jams of the machine, excessive motor load and burnout.
