threading aperture
Explanation:
This appears to be a compactor rather than a shredder. It looks like it compresses cardboard into bales and ties them with string:

Passafilo means threader:
Nell’industria tessile, piccolo attrezzo usato dall’operaio incorsatore per infilare il filo nella maglia del liccio

and feritoia is a slit or aperture:

So this is presumably where you insert the string.

Whoops: left out the first reference, where there's a picture and description of the machine (PRESSA IMBALLATRICE VERTICALE) about halfway down the page:
