A new generation of centrifugal mixers for 3D printing materials

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

Smart DAC centrifugal mixers (photo) feature variable counter-rotation, increased mixing weight (250 g up to 2 kg) and volume (310 mL up to 2.8 L) and allows up to 30 min of mixing time. The mixers feature real-time temperature control, vacuum capability, sensor integration, variable counter-rotation, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) compliance, remote control and an auto-programmable cooling system. The Smart DAC’s structure also allows mixing from 0 rpm up to maximum speed without the risk of high vibrations, offering a significant advantage when, for example, a light powder is one of the components to be mixed. According to the manufacturer, the Smart DAC is uniquely suited for mixing materials used in 3D printing because it can accurately homogenize and dispense solid powders, biological materials and resins, as well as base materials containing viscous polymers. — Hauschild GmbH & Co KG, Hamm, Germany
