THINKY Mixing and Degassing Machines

Quick, thorough, mess-free mixing and degassing


 

With THINKY mixers, you can homogeneously mix and degas:

Liquids

Pastes

Powder

Powders

Filler

Fillers

Engineering and pharmaceutical materials

 

Non-contact ‘planetary’ mixing

THINKY revolution and rotation mixing

By means of the rotation and revolution ‘planetary’ mixing principle, without the use of blades, paddles or other invasive tools, even high viscosity materials and nano-particles can be effectively mixed, dispersed and degassed with minimal stress on the materials themselves.

 

 

THINKY Mixing Cosmetics

No Clean-Up: The planetary centrifugal motion of the mixer means that you can mix in standard THINKY jars or your own containers such as beakers, syringe tubes or cartridges without any mixing implements to clean between batches.

Material with no bubbles THINKY mixer

Bubble-Free: The process naturally degasses compounds, but if micro-bubbles are a concern, several THINKY mixer models feature a vacuum mode to go the extra mile in removing any trapped air.

ARV-310 vacuum degassing mixer

Degassing Times Reduced by up to 90%

For a manufacturer of compound semiconductors, the process of hand mixing the multi-part resins in which to encapsulate them was causing an inconsistent, labour intensive final product.

THINKY ARV-250 mixer

Functionality of Electromagnetic Shielding Materials Improved Without Cutting Fibres

A scientific research team required a non-contact mixing process to effectively mix carbon fibres into their unique radio wave absorbing wall coating for electromagnetically shielded rooms.

Mixing Silicones for Facial and Other Prosthetics

University Hospital Coventry chose a THINKY mixer to move from a lengthy, manual process requiring a skilled technician, to a short, reliable and automated process to mix silicones to produce prosthetics.

THINKY Case Study Munich NMC

Manufacture of NMC Electrodes for Lithium-Ion Batteries With High Active Material Content

The Technical University of Munich uses a THINKY ARV-310 vacuum rotation/revolution mixer to produce visually homogeneous NMC inks with a solid content in excess of 65% weight in a few minutes.

 

A batch size can be anything from 0.5ml to 20L depending on the size of your THINKY machine. 

THINKY mixers start at around £5,000, and you can see a speedy return on investment when you consider the time required to manually mix and clean implements, plus you benefit from the knowledge that your materials are thoroughly and consistently mixed. Have a look at our range of THINKY models:
