Hosokawa Micron has blazed a trail for more than a century in the field of powder processing, both scientifically and through innovations in processing technology, and is immersed in designing, engineering and manufacturing state-of-the-art equipment and technology for high-performance ceramic powder processing, helping to facilitate the advancement of new ceramic materials.
Our diverse portfolio of unique, energy-efficient mixing, freeze-drying, milling and classifying equipment is perfect for processing extremely hard, high-tech ceramic materials that require extremely tight control of their purity, particle size and distribution, shape and heterogeneity, producing contamination-free, ultra-fine and even nano-level powder consistencies.
Traditional and advanced ceramics made from clay and a variety of chemicals and minerals are manipulated using an increasingly wide range of processing techniques. Popular for centuries because of its compressive strength, ceramic is in everyday use by a plethora of sectors – including automotive, defence, nuclear, electronics and battery material.
Ceramic applications are rapidly expanding as technology advances and new functional ceramics are developed; its versatile, hardwearing properties helping to enable space travel, produce super-fast computers, efficiently straighten hair and even decrease pollution. The material is also a key component for consumer products such as porcelain dental appliances and high-end tableware.
As an industry-leading powder handling equipment manufacturer, we also utilise ceramic for our equipment, with ceramic components enabling contamination-free grinding and playing their part to help extend the working life of our equipment and consistently process high-quality powders.
