Fewer raw materials for a superior end product

Our agitator bead mills have a revolutionary impact on the production of paints and coatings. This advanced technology enables improved product quality and offers numerous advantages that meet the increasing industry and end-user requirements. Efficient ingredient grinding can realize savings in raw material usage, process time and energy consumption, while maintaining consistent product quality.

Efficient use of raw materials

Our application areas have a fascinating variety

Automotive painting

Wet grinding technology plays a decisive role in meeting the high demands and customer requirements in automotive paint production. It enables the production of coatings that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also meet the high technical standards required for automotive painting.

Whether clear coat, base coat, filler or primer - using our agitator bead mills, you can efficiently achieve fine particle sizes and particle distributions - for brilliant color, long-lasting gloss and flawless adhesion as well as scratch resistance for the ultimate vehicle aesthetics.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


Our 3D shaker mixer is used to mix colors homogeneously before application to achieve an even distribution of particles.

Mixing Technology

Facade and interior paints

Wet grinding technology plays a crucial role in the production of high-quality decorative paints. By using our agitator bead mills, finer particle sizes of the paint components are achieved, which improves the color quality and intensity and enables a wider range of color shades. At the same time, the use of cost-intensive raw materials can be optimized through effective grinding.

The excellent particle size distribution achieved by wet grinding results in better adhesion and application of the paints to different substrates, a more uniform, smooth surface and improved hiding power. This not only improves the aesthetic effect of the paints, but also increases their resistance and cleanability.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


To ensure that filler and primer can provide a solid base for a high quality and durable coating - wet grinding, by means of horizontal agitator bead mills, plays a crucial role in the production.

Wet grinding distributes fillers evenly in the binder matrix, resulting in a homogeneous coating, filling power and smoothness, improved adhesion, fast drying, recoatability & durability, opacity, color neutrality and thus color accuracy with economic benefits.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology

Wood varnish

This application is enormously exciting because wood, as a natural material, is used in every conceivable area of life. The requirements vary like hardly any other paint application: There are worlds between an exterior coating and a coating for children's toys!

An exterior coating must first and foremost protect the wood from the effects of weathering. In addition, aesthetic issues play an important role: Should the wood grain be completely covered or is a certain transparency desired?

By choosing the right grinding parameters, you can, for example, specifically control the gloss and transparency of the wood varnish. Depending on the choice of pigmentation, the particle distribution also increases UV resistance.

In the formulation of children's toy coatings, regulations drastically reduce the choice of ingredients. The focus is therefore on producing a paint that meets all legal requirements.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology

Powder coating

Powder coating is a surface coating process in which a dry powder material is applied to a substrate. Our 3D shaker mixer is used to mix powders or granules homogeneously to achieve an even distribution of particles.

Mixing Technology

Ship painting

Marine coatings are specially formulated coatings used on ships and marine structures to protect them from corrosion, abrasion and impact, seawater, UV radiation, fresh and salt water, fuels and various chemicals, algae infestation, and temperature fluctuations.

In the marine coatings industry, wet grinding is used to incorporate pigments, fillers and other additives into liquid binders. This enables the production of coatings with uniform distribution of ingredients and optimized performance.

In addition to the chemical requirements, the surface properties are also important. For example, the surface structure of the coating has a major influence on the frictional resistance of the ship's surface when passing through water. Wet grinding to finer grain sizes can reduce frictional resistance - and lower the ship's energy consumption. It is therefore important that the surfaces remain as smooth as possible and free of algae and shellfish. This is achieved by adding antifouling additives.
