What are Turnkey Disintegrators?

This is a SEM Turnkey Disintegrator

SEM Founder Leonard Rosen designed the world’s first paper disintegrator in 1968, and we’ve been building off of that idea ever since.

SEM turnkey disintegrators offer the same technology and cutting chambers used in our traditional disintegrators in an all-inclusive, compact package. These systems require no additional equipment, like external air systems or waste collection, making them the ideal low volume solution for office or commercial environments.

No Additional Add-Ons

SEM turnkey disintegrators offer the technology of a regular disintegrator system at a smaller scale without the need for an external air system or vacuum.

These compact units are capable of destroying credit cards, optical media, flash drives, IronKeys, data tapes, film, SSDs, paper items, and more.
