Milling of materials before processing into new products can be an 'unknown quantity'. Manufacturers are often unsure as to why specific milling techniques and/or durations are used; processes frequently remain unchanged for years.
We know that not fully understanding how a milling system is utilized could be detrimental to production, especially when faults occur. That's why a thorough grasp of the processes involved, combined with refinement, and a greater control of milling processes and technology transfer, can improve production and reduce losses. Using our materials expertise, cross-industry experience and wide-ranging capabilities, our consultancy offering involves:
- Studying, reviewing and understanding current technologies and needs
- Evaluating and comparing potential alternative technologies
- Processing and testing materials using potential new methods
- Interpreting data and reporting recommendations for improvement.
Optimizing milling techniques could be the move that ensures your products are superior to those of the competition.
In this webinar, Dr Adam Healey, materials scientist, describes several different milling techniques, the advantages and disadvantages associated with them and discusses a number of case studies where altering of the milling process has been instrumental.
