TOPPAN FORMS Launches Hybrid Shredder That Can Process Both Thermal Transfer Ribbons and Cards
-Demand growth reflecting the increase of cards issued instantly by financial institutions and local governments-

June 13, 2017

DigitalHybrid Company TOPPAN FORMS CO., LTD. (“TOPPAN FORMS” hereunder) and J-SCube Inc. (headquartered in Koto-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Hideyuki Ikeuchi; J-SCube, hereunder), a TOPPAN FORMS Group company that engages in sales and maintenance of equipment, provision of BPO services and comprehensive human resource services, will launch the Ribbon Chopper Sebon PLUS (Sebon PLUS, hereunder), a shredder that can shred both thermal transfer ribbons which have been used for a card printer, card tipper, or similar devices and plastic cards to be disposed of. This device was developed by J-SCube.

Background

Currently, an increasing number of financial institutions issue cash cards instantly over the counter as a measure for improving customer services by fulfilling their fiduciary duty. This has led to growing demand related to the disposal of used ribbons and misprinted cards that are generated at counters. Such demand has also been growing among local governments. When a local government issues a My Number Card for a resident, it requests that resident return their Juki Card (basic resident register card). The returned card contains the personal information of the resident and therefore needs to be disposed of appropriately.
Sebon PLUS is a hybrid shredder that can shred both ribbons and cards. It was developed partly in response to customers’ requests for a compact shredder that fulfills these needs. These requests were given to the company while they were providing Ribbon Chopper 203, a shredder dedicated to thermal transfer ribbons that was launched in October 2012, and its successor, Ribbon Chopper Sebon.

Features

  • 1. Smaller size than previous models
  • 2. Simultaneous shredding of various types of ribbons used for issuing cards
  • 3. Single shredder that can shred both ribbons and cards
  • 4. Much granular shredding size and much greater ease of handling of shredded waste than previous models
