Rotogravure Inks

Rotogravure is a printing method in which the image to be printed is engraved onto a cylinder, forming depressions. During printing, these depressions, also called cups, are filled with soft, paste-like, low-viscosity inks, which are transferred to the print material by contact pressure. The depressions can be created, for example, by etching, mechanical engraving with a diamond etching needle or laser engraving. Due to the high cost of the printing plate, rotogravure is especially cost-effective for bulk printed matter with mass circulation such as sales circulars, magazines, decorative films for the furniture industry and wallpaper.

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.

Laboratory batch mills PE 075 / PR 01 and PE 5 / PR 1 S

The periodically working agitator bead mills PE 075 / PR 01 and PE 5 / PR 1 S are the most improved and simpliest grinding units of NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH. These laboratory machines work with both – the well-known MoliNex- and attritor system.


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.

VMS - Vertical MaxShear Rotor/Stator Mixer

Featuring a precision high-speed rotor, which creates a vigorous pumping action as it draws liquid into the stator inlet. Liquid is discharged at high velocity through machined slots in the stator.

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.

ShearMaster Laboratory Dissolver

The ShearMaster laboratory dissolver is designed for batch sizes of 1 to 10 l and is equipped with a 1.1 kW variable speed drive.

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.

Micro Ψ-Mix® Laboratory Inline Disperser

With the laboratory-scale version of the successful Ψ-Mix® Inline Disperser you can rely on innovative dispersion technology with emission-free inline operation for optimal wetting of powders in liquids.
