Bühler Grinding & Dispersion at Powtech 2016
Bühler presents itself as a partner for providing demanding wet-grinding and dispersion solutions
Uzwil, December 08, 2015 – At Powtech, which will be held in Nuremberg in April 2016 and which is the most important mechanical process engineering exhibition, Bühler will present itself as a global provider of wet-grinding and dispersion solutions. “Various applications such as the manufacture of high-quality coatings, engineering ceramics, inks, electronic materials, or active materials for batteries
require customized solutions. At our appearance at this trade show, we are therefore setting a special focus on our comprehensive solution development capabilities beside showing product innovations,” explains Cornel Mendler, Head of Business Area Grinding & Dispersion at Bühler.
Bühler Grinding & Dispersion is a leading global provider of process technologies for wet-grinding and dispersion applications. Its solutions are distinguished by high productivity and quality as well as low operating costs. These competencies are appropriately rewarded by customers: “We look back on a successful year in which we significantly increased our bead mill sales,” says Mendler. At Powtech 2016, this business area of the Swiss Bühler Group is in addition to product innovations also showing a process for manufacturing granular superabsorber materials. Moreover, Bühler will be highlighting its comprehensive engineering and service competencies.
MicroMediaTM X now with metal-free process zone
The high-performance bead mills of the MicroMediaTM series have been fine-tuned to applications involving micro-grinding beads. At Powtech, Bühler will be rolling out this patented annular-chamber bead mill for the first time with a new material combination in the process zone. The use of silicon carbide and polyamide now enables also materials
to be processed that are not allowed to contact metal or become discolored – for example ceramic pastes or electrode materials for batteries. The new process unit can easily be retrofitted to older SuperFlowTM and MicroMediaTM X series machines.
