Fritsch launches new planetary mill

Published by
World Cement,

Fritsch has introduced the new Fritsch planetary mill PULVERISETTE 6 premium line, with two grinding stations, designed for fast wet and dry grinding of hard, medium-hard, soft, brittle, and moist samples, as well as for the mechanical alloying, mixing, and homogenising of larger sample quantities with reliable results down into the nano range, and secure automatic clamping of the bowls by the mill.

With the brand new ServoLOCK clamping of the grinding bowls and the automatic check of the fastening of the bowls inside the mill, man and machine are optimally protected. In the event of impermissible operating states, the machine blocks the start of a grinding – and if an imbalance occurs it automatically shuts off.

The grinding bowl is simply inserted in the PULVERISETTE 6 premium line from the front, into the holder. Correct positioning is automatically ensured by a practical guide. The PULVERISETTE 6 premium line does not start until both bowls are correctly inserted and prevents, due to bowl detection via RFID chip, the setting of too high speeds depending on the bowl material used.

The ServoLOCK is activated with a single hand motion by pressing down the clamp. It is automatically locked by the machine via ServoLOCK instead of manually. A LED light shows that the bowl is correctly inserted and clamped.
