Custom Milling & Consulting, Inc. (CMC), is an industry leader in wet milling technologies headquartered in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania USA.

We manufacture horizontal milling machines for customers in India and around the world who are seeking finer particle sizes, cleaner dispersions and higher product quality in their manufacturing processes.

In most industries, wet milling means reducing material to sizes in the low micron to nano-size range. The size of the media affects the end result of the milling operation. Small media (beads or spheres) inside the vessel are activated by a high-speed agitator shaft to separate the individual particles. Kinetic energy acts on the solids suspended in a liquid (slurry) to tear them apart (shearing) or crush them, reducing them in size. The particles are dispersed in the liquid and are ready for use or can be dried and separated for use in other products.

Selecting the right media mill for a wet-grinding process is very important, and not always simple.

Vertical mills are used worldwide, but they tend to be limited in media volume charge and have fluidizing issues related to the use of finer grinding media. In general, they cannot accommodate as much media as horizontal mills. Another challenge is in obtaining very fine particle sizes. Traditional vertical mills and ball mills are often limited to a finished particle size of approximately 5 microns, which can be achieved only with careful attention to media size.

Horizontal mills, on the other hand, have certain characteristics that are better suited to wet grinding, including:

  • Smaller particle size than dry milling
  • Higher rotational speeds and grinding efficiency
  • Larger application range
  • Reduced product waste and greater yield
  • Reduced occupational exposure to dust
  • As much as 300% reduction in process time
  • Media can be as small as .25 mm and as large as 2 mm
  • Maximum color strength and gloss durability
  • Convenient maintenance

Wet milling can provide cutting-edge processing solutions for many industries such as the automotive, agricultural, pharmaceutical, paints and coatings, ceramics, ink, dye, pigment, marine, specialty chemical and food seasoning industries to name a few. To that end, CMC manufactures mixers and wet grinding media mills for particle size reduction, offering durable and efficient processing equipment such as the CMC Supermill PLUS™ media mill and the CMC Batch Mill.

The CMC Supermill PLUS™ horizontal media mill is equipped with the latest milling technology and innovative design features.

This workhorse media mill offers efficiency, flexibility and economy for the most demanding applications.  The CMC Batch Mill offers efficient, one tank milling of a wide range of formulations, due to its dual shaft/dual speed control configuration.  Our multiple mills, mixers and high-speed dispersion units can be customized and fine-tuned to fit every situation.

CMC is committed to helping you find the most energy- and time-efficient process for your manufacturing needs.
