As data-bearing equipment continues to get smaller, it creates the possibility for the devices to become too small to be handled by typical SSD shredders.
To address this challenge, Michigan-based Ameri-Shred developed precision clearance cutterheads meant to target M.2 SSDs and other small media, ensuring that they can’t slip through shredders undamaged.
M.2 SSDs tend to be 3 millimeters thick, 22 millimeters wide and either 60 millimeters or 80 millimeters long, with some variation.
Ameri-Shred’s cutterheads are available on all of its new SSD shredders as an upgrade. For customers who already own a shredder, they’re also available as a retrofit upgrade package for any model purchased after 2018.
