Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

MLCC stands for "Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor". 

As chip capacitors for surface mounting, these tiny discrete capacitors are built into almost every electronic device on printed circuit boards. In principle, these multilayer ceramic capacitors consist of a multitude of individual capacitors that are stacked on top of each other and are connected in a parallel circuit. 

The raw materials for manufacturing such capacitors are usually suspensions of very finely ground titanium dioxide (TiO2) or barium titanate (BaTiO3) with additives of Zr, Nb, Co, or Sr. The goal here is primary particle sizes under 10 nm. These suspensions are mixed with a special binder and processed into ceramic films that are often only a few thousands of a millimeter thick. 

The thickness of the individual capacitor layers is determined by the fineness and gauge of the grain size distribution of the ceramic particles. The trend is toward ever smaller scales. 

For this reason, machines such as the LMZ and the Zeta® RS are primarily used in the production of slurries for manufacturing multilayer ceramic capacitors. The MicroCer®, MiniCer® and the LabStar laboratory-scale machines with variable grinding chamber volumes and very easy operation are available for process development. We have many years of experience and will be happy to advise you. In addition, we can arrange for testing in our laboratory.


Wet Grinding

Products & Solutions in the field of Wet Grinding
Nano mill Zeta® RS

Specially designed for grinding and dispersing to the nanometer range. This new development combines easy handling and revolutionary machine technology with ergonomic design.

The next Generation of Agitator Bead Mills

NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH has now developed the new Alpha® modular machine platform. Compared to earlier-generation machines, this series is designed such that different grinding systems can be mounted on the same base platform as appropriate for a defined drive capacity.

Circulation mill system Type Zeta®

The circulation grinding system for all fields of application. Suitability for all viscosities and nearly all products is achieved with different grinding media from 90 µm to 3 mm. This provides highest product qualities and fineness down to the nanometer range.

Laboratory agitator bead mill LabStar

The multi-functional laboratory mill LabStar enables scientific academic work even at difficult research and development tasks and convinces by easy handling. The laboratory mill LabStar is the smallest grinding unit of NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH that enables an exact scale-up to comparable production machines.

MiniSeries / MicroSeries - Laboratory Mills for Product Development of Smallest Batches

The compact, universally applicable laboratory circulation mills of the MiniSeries impress with their easy handling when processing very small quantities from 0.25 to 0.5 l up to particle sizes in the nanometer range. It is possible to conduct many tests with low loss of product and significant results within a short period of time.

Finest wet grinding technology – the laboratory mills of the MicroSeries are an investment in the future for new product developments of different fields of application of pigmented ink jets, technical ceramics, cosmetics, pharmaceutical applications and nano-scale high-tech products.


Dry Grinding

s-Jet® Steam Jet Mill

The s-Jet® System (patent pending) is a new innovation in a line of consistent developments being made in the area of air jet milling. Final finenesses in the submicron range (example: d50 0.2 µm) can now be achieved with fluidized bed jet mills. As opposed to conventional dry grinding processes with fluidized bed jet mills, the s-Jet® System uses superheated steam as its milling gas.
