Some of the challenges in manufacturing today include the need for finer particle size and higher quality dispersions in wet grinding. Custom Milling & Consulting, Inc., in Fleetwood, PA, has met those challenges. We are a global leader and innovator in dispersion technology and a leading supplier of mixers and wet grinding media mills for particle size reduction. CMC offers durable and efficient milling machines, such as the CMC Supermill PLUS™ media mill and the CMC Batch Mill, to help you optimize your processes.
Milling of a product is achieved by wet or dry milling. Dry milling generally cannot break apart a product to conserve its parts for other uses. In wet milling, the substances to be ground remain in the system, allowing for reduced losses and a greater variety of byproducts. Although wet milling is a more energy-intensive, labor-intensive process and the equipment is more expensive, it offers a more favorable cost-value ratio.
CMC specializes in manufacturing horizontal media mills, basket mills/batch mills and other process equipment for mixing, blending, compounding, dispersions and particle size reduction applications.
We also offer extensive custom and toll processing services for wet-milled applications. Our milling machines, mixers and high-speed dispersion units can be customized and fine-tuned to fit even the most demanding applications.
The CMC Supermill PLUS™ horizontal media mill is a true workhorse. It offers a flexible design that allows for discrete pass, high flow recirculation and cascade milling operation. Its unique disc design minimizes wear, features multiple control options, and offers large screen separation for media sizes down to 0.1mm and as large as 4.0mm. The Duplex Supermill PLUS™ media mill is designed with two chambers on one common frame to eliminate the need for a surge tank or separate feed pump and can accommodate two stages of grinding in one continuous pass.
The CMC Batch Mill is a basket-style mill that performs one tank milling for a wide range of applications. A variety of slot openings gives the machine the flexibility to run media sizes from 0.5mm to 2.5mm and larger. The CMC Batch Mill solves the challenges of small batch, rapid changeover industries such as the ink dispersion business.
CMC’s multiple mills, mixers and high-speed dispersion units can be customized to fit every situation and process everything from small-scale batches of one gallon to production-size batches of 2,000 gallons. Our toll milling capabilities include complete analytical, engineering and consulting services, wet milling for nanomaterials and ultrafine materials, powder and liquid blending, air classification and mixing, color matching and much more.
Whether your business is considering the purchase of wet milling machines or is interested in toll processing your materials, contact CMC at 610-926-0984 to see our milling equipment in action.
Test the machines by producing production-size batches, or set up milling training for your staff. Our Technology Center offers lab and pilot facilities for all CMC product offerings and can assist you with all aspects of your changing manufacturing needs.
