FD 87HD Gives a Knock-out Punch to Unwanted Hard Drives

February, 2014

FEBRUARY ’14: Discarding a hard drive is not as simple as tossing it in the trash. And even if you erase the drive by magnetically degaussing, are you sure the data is secure? That’s why Formax Direct is introducing the latest addition to its commercial-grade shredder line: the FD 87HD Hard Drive Punch. The FD 87HD provides that added level of security in today’s digital world.

With the push of a button, the hardened nickel-plated steel punching die pierces a hole through hard drive internals, causing visible damage and making the stored data virtually unreadable.

The FD 87HD is designed to handle the two most common hard drive sizes, 2.5” and 3.5”, without any additional adjustment. Its punching chamber is illuminated by LEDs during the punching process, visible through the transparent safety shield. Punched hard drives then slide into a convenient waste bin for storage until disposal or recycling.

The Formax LED control panel displays the status and offers jam protection with auto reverse and automatic stop to protect the punching die. In addition, sensors stop the motor automatically if the door is open or waste bin is full. The powerful geared motor is housed in an all-metal cabinet with casters for mobility and is designed for low operational noise.

The FD 87HD Hard Drive Punch expands the Formax data destruction line, and is an ideal solution for keeping sensitive digital data out of the wrong hands!
