The R12, the new mixer design line first presented at Powtech 2008, has now been joined by the R12W. In this type the mixing tools can be raised together with the mixing pan cover. This allows the entire mixing area to be given a thorough clean and makes the mixing tools particularly easy to change. The machine has the same features and offers a usable volume, depending on the version, of 250 l or 400 l. Alongside the excellent characteristics that have come to be expected of Eirich intensive mixers, the special design features of the R12W allow it to offer additional advantages in production with frequent recipe changes.
Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich supplies innovative process engineering technology for all areas of ceramics and analogous specialist fields with a broad range of plant and machinery covering the basic operations of “mixing, pelletising, kneading, drying and fine grinding.” The shaping processes common in the ceramic industry, such as dry pressing, moist pressing, isostatic pressing, extruding, die casting, slip casting and film casting, demand efficient preparation systems.
