The “basket” style media mill has been the salvation of small batch, rapid changeover industries such as the ink dispersion business. And the CMC Batch Mill line is a great example of this milling platform. The CMC Batch Mill offers efficient, one tank milling of a wide range of formulations, due to its dual shaft/dual speed control configuration. Operators command full control of both the agitator speed and the milling shaft speed. This versatility allows the operator to “dial in” to the perfect setting for his or her specific formula rheology.
Or let the machine find its own perfect operating parameters with one of our “SMART” control systems. Simply load a few basic processing ranges into the PLC using our easy to use HMI touch screen, and start the mill. Sensors monitoring product temperature and motor loading will make multiple adjustments every second in order to seek out, and maintain the optimum operating conditions, all the while staying within the parameters you prescribed. Nothing could be faster from start to finish.
A variety of slot openings offered on the durable, easy to change baskets, gives the machine the flexibility to run media sizes from 0.5mm to 2.5mm and larger, if required. Cleaning the all stainless steel wetted system is a breeze as well. Simply lower the mill into a solvent tank using the air over oil lift, run both shafts for several minutes, then raise the mill up to drain. In no time you are ready for your next batch.
