A great many plastics, construction materials or ceramic high-tech products contain mineral powders. These powders are used in great quantities – for example as fillers – in the paint, paper and rubber industries. The systems of the minerals & metals division are designed for processing mineral raw materials into fine mineral powders. Regardless of whether soft, medium-hard or hard minerals – suitable wet or dry processing technologies are available for every desired particle size and capacity. Besides low-contamination and low-wear processes, the manufacture of individual particle structures is also an important factor in the processing of mineral and metal bulk materials.
