Blue Marlin



The Blue Marlin single-shaft shredders are used to reduce non-pre-treated materials to a predefined output size and prepare them for more effective secondary shredding. As for any machine designed by Zato, one of the challenges during the design phase for Blue Marlin single shaft shredding machines has been to maximize the accessibility of all operations of ordinary maintenance for the operator, so as to be performed in total safety and in order to significantly reduce downtime for tooling and maintenance.
