Description

THINKY Mixers are industrial non-contact "planetary" mixers for all engineering compounds. They mix, disperse and degas your materials in seconds to minutes, in a sealed or lid-less container such as a jar, beaker, syringe tube or cartridge. The non-contact mixing principle makes it possible to formulate or combine compounds from very small amounts such as 0.5ml to large production scales. By means of both rotation and revolution of the material in a container, materials are mixed and degassed. The materials are under an acceleration of 400G, and even materials of very high viscosity can be mixed and deaerated or degassed at the same time.

Mixing Principles

The material container revolves and rotates in a planetary manner at high speeds. Centrifugal force presses the material outwards to the inner wall of the container. Other forces cause the material to move downwards in a spiraling direction along the slope of container wall. The material then moves back to the centre of the container and up to the top. As a result, material circulation from top to the bottom generates kneading effects, forcing trapped air out of the material. The THINKY mixer is designed to create more than 400G of force.

Example of usage

Epoxy resin
Epoxy resin, hardener and aluminium powder are mixed in 6.5 minutes. Ingredients are dispersed evenly.
Epoxy resin
Solder paste
Creamy solder paste with no air bubbles is made from solder powder and flux. Processed with ARE-250 in 45 seconds.
Solder paste
Cosmetics
Ingredients for face cake, wax and coloured iron oxide, are mixed completely with the ARE-250 in 5 minutes.
Cosmetics
Ointment
It mixes yellow pigment into zinc oxide. Without solvent, it dispersed perfectly with the ARE-250 in 20 seconds
