Milling machinery has been around since the early 1800’s, when it was suspected that some of the first machines were in existence. No official record has been discovered of when the first machine was actually built, because people did not keep records like they do now. The first one that was documented was in the 1920’s and was invented by Eli Whitney. According to some historians this is false and machines predated this.

As time went on two types of milling evolved; wet milling and dry milling/grinding. Dry grinding is a cost effective way of reducing particles sizes and breaking down your material but wet milling is able to achieve smaller particles. As the demand for the wet process increased, manufacturers designed machine that could get the desired results.

Custom Milling & Consulting Inc. has accumulated decades of experience and manufactured state-of-the-art milling machinery. Trained and experienced engineers have design a variety of machines that can handle a wide range of material and viscosities. The benefits to wet milling are:

  • Particle size reduction
  • Even dispersions
  • High shear performance
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Faster production times
  • Safe for products that are heat-sensitive or hazardous

Another advancement has made is possible for machines to practically run themselves with computers and sensors. Computer based system is integrated with the equipment; you can key in a few setting and let the program run. The sensors will monitor the material and adjust temperature and speed depending on the original settings.

Technicians can check the computer periodically of one machine and then move on to another one to ensure that every operation is running smoothly.

Other advances in the equipment including the different kind of parts and the material they are made of gives various industries the chance to have a machine that is specifically designed for milling their product. Custom Milling & Consulting has been manufacturing machines for, but not limited to, the following industries for years:

  • Paints & Coatings
  • Automotive
  • Inks/Dyes
  • Agricultural Chemicals
  • Composite Materials
  • Nanomaterial
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Electronic Materials
  • Ceramics
  • Adhesives/Sealants

CMC engineers will that the time to sit down with customers and discuss material and specifications. The milling machinery we manufacture is equipped with the latest technology and quality parts that are made to last.

A technician will come out and install your machine and demonstrate to you how to operate the controls. Technical formulation support is available to any customers even after installation of your milling machinery.
