Planetary Ball Mill
The innovative Planetary Ball Mills meet and exceed all requirements for fast and reproducible grinding down to the nano range. They are used for the most demand- ing tasks, from routine sample processing to colloidal grinding and mechanical alloying. The grinding parameters are easily selected and stored with one single button. All planetary mills feature programmable starting time, power failure backup with storage of remaining grinding time and a built-in fan which cools the grinding jars during operation. The comfort grinding jars are dust-tight and unusually simple and safe to handle.
  • Extreme speed, final fineness down to the nano range
  • Reproducible results due to energy and speed control
  • 1-button operation with graphics display
  • 10 parameter combinations can be stored
  • Smooth and stable operation
  • Automatic grinding chamber ventilation
  • Suitable for long-term trials and continuous use

Planetary Ball Mill PM 200
Planetary Ball Mill PM 400
Planetary Ball Mill PM 100
This single station ball mill pulverizes and mixes a wide range of materials and can be operated with grinding jars from 12 ml to 500 ml. It is especially safe to operate on a laboratory bench thanks to the new FFCS technology which helps to compensate vibrations.

Planetary ball mill PM 100 CM
This ball mill offers all the performance and con- venience of the classic PM 100, only the speed ratio of sun wheel to grinding jar is 1:-1 instead of 1:-2. This results in a different ball movement so that the sample is not so much crushed by impact effects but more gently ground by pressure and friction. This not only leads to less abrasion but also reduces the heat build-up inside the jar.

Planetary Ball Mill PM 400
The robust floor model features four grinding stations and accepts jars from 12 ml to 500 ml. It can process up to 8 samples simultaneously thus generating a high sample throughput. The PM 400 is also available with 2 grinding stations and different speed ratios. The model “MA-type” was especially developed for mechanical alloying of hard-brittle materials
