In just three easy steps the destruction process is complete. The operator opens the door and inserts the drive. Closing the door energizes the unit and pressing the button starts the destruction process. Progress is shown on the LCD. When the display shows the process is complete, the door is opened and the destroyed drive can be removed.

At all times through the cycle the safety interlocks ensures operators cannot put fingers, clothing etc in the crushing area whilst the moving parts are energized.
