Ball Mill's are a type of grinder used to grind and blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics and selective laser sintering. They work on the principle of impact and attrition. Planetary ball mills are smaller than common ball mills and mainly used in laboratories for grinding sample materials down to very small sizes. Consisting of at least one grinding jar which is arranged eccentrically on a so-called sun wheel. The movement of the sun wheel is opposite to that of the grinding jars (ratio: 1:-2 or 1:-1 or else). The grinding balls in the grinding jars are subjected to superimposed rotational movements, the so-called Coriolis forces. Please contact us with any questions you might have.
