One for all
Multitalents for the laboratory and production: UMIX universal mixing
and kneading machines enhance the HF MIXING GROUP’s portfolio.

Laboratory mixer.
A specialised solution is not always the best choice. There
are applications for which one and the same mixer is in-
tended to be used for various compounds and various
mixing applications. This is the case, for instance, in labora‑
tories or industrial applications where the batch sizes
don't use a special machine to its full capacity. The UMIX
universal mixer series is the right answer for achieving ex-
cellent results when mixing low- to high-viscosity media
in varying compounds with minimal investment. The HF
MIXING GROUP took over this product series from the
Stuttgart-based Coperion GmbH in summer 2013. ‘The
UMIX series perfectly enhances our product range for
those customers who produce small to medium-sized
quantities and have to manufacture varying compounds
on one machine at reasonable investment costs,’ says Ul-
rich Gerhards, UMIX product group manager, welcoming
the expanded product range.
With capacities ranging from 0.25 to 4,300 litres, the
series covers a broad spectrum of possible applications.
Besides pure mixing and kneading, the UMIX series can
handle simultaneous processes such as moistening,
plasticising, dispersing, homogenising, melting, cooling,
degassing, evaporation, dissolving and reacting during
the mixing process.
The function of the machine is based on a twin blade prin-
ciple with two tangentially counter-rotating blades which,
in interaction with the trough wall, produce an optimal
shear rate in the mixture, thereby ensuring homoge‑
neous mixing results. The temperature of trough and/or
blades can be adjusted on many of the model sizes,
which is just as interesting for laboratory and test applica-
tions as for temperature-critical mixing processes in in-
dustrial production.
The UMIX is available as a compact version for laborator-
ies and a powerful version for industry. The product can
either be discharged by tilting the trough or – on very small
machines – by simply removing the trough. The option to
empty the machine via discharge screws or bottom out-
lets is available on many of the model sizes. On request,
the models can be supplied with additional components
fitted, such as nozzles for pelletising or profile extrusion.
Overall, the UMIX series has a range of impressive fea-
tures, including its compact design, wide range of mixing
applications, convenient operation, safe process man-
agement and various configuration options with respect
to performance, functions and capacity. (Further informa-
