The Tonto’s opening is on its front and is positioned at an ergonomic height. It is always ready for use. The Tonto’s hatch is connected to a pedal, so minimum contact is required.


The entire process revolves around hygiene. After each use, the machine is automatically cleaned under high pressure (5 bar).

Self-cleaning and disinfection

As a default the Tonto will automatically start a self-cleaning session daily. Additionally disinfection takes place on a regular basis. The cleaning and disinfection intervals can be adjusted in co-operation with the customer.


Location and communication

Through a network, each Tonto knows where it is located in the building, automatically adjusting its settings accordingly. The Tonto communicates with the data centre and records all operations, so that the hospital has immediate insights into the number of times materials are processed and the performance of all of the Tontos. Any malfunctions are automatically communicated to the immediate breakdown service.

Plug & Play

In the event of a malfunction, the Tonto can easily be replaced. This means nurses are not distracted from their primary tasks any more than absolutely necessary. A docking station in combination with a special pallet truck has been developed to facilitate easy and safe replacement.


The waste is ground in a closed drum. The Tonto is automatically cleaned after each use and periodically disinfected.
