Whether you are manufacturing pigmented inks, technical ceramics, coatings, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals or nano-scale high-tech products, it is important to select the right horizontal media mill. Custom Milling & Consulting, Inc. (CMC), headquartered in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania USA, is a global leader in the manufacture of horizontal milling machines for customers in Argentina and around the world.

Horizontal media mills, submersion-type basket media mills and high-shear dispersers are used for the grinding of wet applications for particle size reduction. In the past, ball mills and attritors with large balls were used to process batches for long periods of time. Production jobs often had to run overnight or for several days because of the slow speeds of the equipment.

Growing demand for finer and finer particle sizes brought about smaller and smaller media to replace the large balls, but reductions in bead mass alone created other issues such as floating and hydraulic packing, and the slow equipment speeds limited the overall efficacy. The advent of higher energy milling systems and smaller, denser media enabled manufacturers to accommodate more demanding dispersion and grinding applications.

CMC has met the challenges of particle size reduction with its CMC Supermill PLUS™ horizontal media mill. 

Equipped with the latest milling technology and innovative design features, this media mill is efficient, flexible and economical for the most challenging of applications.  The Supermill PLUS™ media mill is offered in a variety of sizes and materials of construction. Also available is the CMC Duplex Supermill PLUS II which is designed with two chambers on one common frame and enables two stages of grinding in one continuous pass.

For small batch, rapid changeover industries such as the ink dispersion business, we manufacture the CMC Batch (Basket) Mill which offers efficient, one tank milling of a wide range of formulations due to its dual shaft/dual speed control configuration. And CMC Double Planetary Mixers are the ideal choice for mixing and kneading viscous pastes, gently blending shear sensitive formulations or drying and granulating powders.

Wet milling equipment offers the following advantages and more:

  • Reduced particle size
  • Finer, consistent dispersions
  • High shear performance
  • Ability to handle diverse viscosities
  • Adjustable media sizes for different applications
  • More efficient operation
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Reduced production times
  • Higher yields
  • Safe for products with heat-sensitive, hazardous or contamination concerns

CMC has more than 25 years of expertise in grinding, milling, distillation, micronization, emulsification,  and de-agglomeration.

In addition to equipment manufacture, we also provide toll processing, or contract manufacturing, services for nanomaterials and ultra-fine particle size reduction in the automotive, agricultural, pharmaceutical, ceramics, paper coating, power and electronics, specialty chemical and various other industries.
