IDP SMART-BIT Printer Ribbon Shredder

Product number: SMART-BIT Vendor: IDP

The IDP SMART-BIT printer ribbon shredder ensures the secure destruction of used ID card printer ribbons by slicing them up into thin 2.5mm strips, making them completely useless to scammers and counterfeiters. The SMART-BIT can shred dye-submilaton, resin and wax ribbons.

The shredder's Twisted Micro-Cut Technology uses unique twist and cut motions that renders used printer ribbon virtually unrecognizable.


  • Complete Shredding - Twisted Micro-Cut ​technology uses its unique twist and cut motions to completely shred ribbon panels into tiny particles
  • Flexible Ribbon Compatibility - ​Compatible with the industry’s popular brands of desktop printer ribbons
  • Easy to Use - Simple 3 button interface (shred, stop and reverse). Shredded ribbons can be easily discarded using the SMART-BIT waste bag when full. 
  • Compact Design - 9.1 x 14.4 x 15.2 inches

The SMART-BIT cannot be used to shred laminating ribbons, as these ribbons contain an adhesive material that can jam the machine.​
