Flexographic Printing Ink

Flexo printing, like letterpress printing, is one of the relief printing processes and is used for printing newspapers, books and packaging, particularly for high-quality food packaging. For flexo printing, the printing plate is flexible (photo polymer or rubber printing plates are used) and the impression cylinder is made of steel. 
Solvent- and water-based inks as well as UV inks are used in the flexographic printing process. In addition to the solvent, they consist of pigments, processing aids such as drying accelerators or retardants, additives and binders, as well as photo initiators in the case of UV inks. The processing aids and additives make it possible to precisely tailor the properties of the ink, such as abrasion resistance, flexibility, glide performance, optical density and color strength.

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.

Horizontal disk mill System TetraNex® Type Discus

The disk grinding system sets new benchmarks regarding capacity and flexibility. You profit from well-engineered technology that has already been proved for processing different products.

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.

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.

Laboratory agitator bead mill MiniZeta

The universally applicable laboratory circulation mill MiniZeta is essential for research and development. Its easy operation, equipped with easy to clean tools of stainless steel, achieves the machine excellent results down to the Sub-Micron 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.

Mixing and De-Aerating

Products & Solutions in the field of Mixing and De-Aerating
Ψ-Mix® Inline Disperser

The Ψ-Mix® inline disperser is a revolutionary system for mixing and dispersing solids in liquids. Homogeneous, fine dispersions with exactly reproducible quality are achieved through a controlled, emission-free process.

PMD / PMD-VC Intensive Mixers

For processing large batches of moderate- to high-viscosity product, the PMD and PMD-VC intensive mixers are the machines of choice. The stationary mixing and dispersing units are successfully utilized primarily in the paint, printing ink and pigment industries.

MasterMix® Dissolver

The NETZSCH MasterMix® dissolvers are fast, high-powered dispersing units for simple mixing tasks. They can easily process products with viscosities up to 100 Pa·s from a broad range of applications.

NETZSCH DA / DA-VS Vacuum De-Aerator

The NETZSCH Vacuum De-Aerator offers a simple way to remove even micronized gas and air pockets from liquids of various viscosities or from viscous compounds and pastes.

Laboratory De-Aerator MiniVac

The MiniVac laboratory-scale De-Aerator was specially developed for small batches or initial tests and – like the production-scale NETZSCH vacuum de-aerator – operates according to the VTR principle (vacuum - thin film - rotary process). With extreme ease of operation you can remove micronized pockets of gas and air from free-flowing products of various viscosities as well as from viscous pastes and compounds.
