The SMART-BIT printer ribbon shredder from IDP® takes your used printer ribbons and slices them up into thin, confetti-like strips, making them completely useless to scammers and counterfeiters. This product can shred direct-to-card ribbons, reverse-transfer ribbons and more.
What do you do with your printer ribbons after use? If this is the first time you're thinking about the topic, chances are you're just throwing them in the trash. However, used ribbons contain imprints of every piece of data that you printed on your ID cards.
A used printer ribbon is like a mirror image of a printed ID card, and the spent panels can feature names, photos and even credit card numbers. This poses a serious security threat.
For that reason, the best way to handle used printer ribbons is the same way you handle sensitive documents: shred them.
This innovative shredder uses IDP's Twisted Micro-Cut Technology to render your used ribbons virtually unrecognizable. Ribbons are fed into the shredder through a small slot, allowing you to simply lock in the ribbon, feed the beginning of the roll and let the SMART-BIT do its thing.
Please note that the SMART-BIT cannot be used to shred laminating ribbons, as these ribbons contain an adhesive material that can jam the machine.
