At Hockmeyer, we understand that every client’s business comes with its own unique issues. It’s this uniqueness that requires custom equipment and processes. But how do you know that a piece of equipment is a great fit for your needs? After all, it’s a big piece of your business and an investment in both time and money. For us, the answer is simple: Hockmeyer’s Test to Own Program.

In the age of instant gratification, companies are facing the demands of a market seeking continuous innovation. Whether your business has crafted a stellar formulation or not, the challenges of launching a new product are significant. It takes not only creativity, capital investment, and regulatory compliance, but also market testing, product sampling, and customer feedback to confirm the product’s viability and calculate its longevity.

In the demanding and competitive field of cosmetics, providing the highest quality products proves paramount for manufacturers. The longstanding 3 roll mill has set the standard for particle deagglomeration and pigment development for many of the industry's most beloved products. Today, Hockmeyer Equipment Corporation offers a safer, greener and more efficient alternative for businesses seeking to boost their profits by enhancing productivity, reducing labor costs, shortening production times and increasing product recovery with the HCPS Immersion Mill.

The HCP “S” series is designed to mill high viscosity feedstocks in vehicles such as the waxes and oils used in the cosmetics we adore in an ultra-aggressive, yet controlled environment. It features uniquely designed interchangeable scraper and helical blades, which are most efficient when used on high-density products that are slow-flowing and will not turn over without supplementary agitation. This multi-targeted approach to high viscosity milling is ultra-effective and enhances the value of your product portfolio.

Additionally, the High Viscosity Mill provides numerous advantages from improved safety features to labor savings when installing the Auto Process Control (APC-II) system. The APC-II requires less machine monitoring by programming operating parameters that control aspects such as mill speed, chiller flow, slow down temperature, shut-down temperature, temperature alarm and batch run time settings.

We understand that your equipment and processes are the be-all, end-all of your business. We also understand that each of our customers has unique needs where their equipment and processes are concerned and that a “standardized” piece of equipment will not fulfill these needs.

As part of working with each client, we learn their processes so that we can customize machines to fit their specific applications, environment, and regulations. To achieve this goal, we offer a state-of-the-art customer service laboratory for product testing and process development where we can test potential equipment to make sure it will be a fit for each customer’s needs, offering customization at its finest.

With custom solutions comes custom-designed equipment, and while we highlighted the importance of our service department in another blog, another integral part of our business is our parts department. It’s an important piece that makes us not only the leader in the wet grinding and dispersion industry, but it’s what will help your business find success with our products.

As the leader in the wet grinding and dispersion industry, we offer custom-designed equipment for all phases of the particle size reduction manufacturing process. But what does that mean for our customers? We have a state of the art customer service laboratory for product testing and process development, and our service team is dedicated to helping you find practical solutions. This is what sets us apart from others and makes us a leader in the industry.

Adhesives continue to evolve as one of the key building materials multiple industries. As adhesives improve demand goes up and manufactures must find new ways to process quality adhesives in an efficient way.

HCS/HCPS Concentric Particle Reduction Systems can double your product out put!

The HCS Concentric Disperser is Hockmeyer’s latest edition to the Multi-Shaft market. This highly versatile disperser is ideal for heat sensitive, high viscosity products. The addition of the helical sweep blade provides excellent product movement and heat transfer along the tank wall, while concentric design allows the use of a full size disperser blade for maximum shear.

As the particle reduction industry continues to make advances, Nanoparticles are becoming key players in the development of new products. These interesting and versatile materials can be found in multiple industries and are changing the characteristics of what was considered "standard.  Better, more potent, durable and functional products result in a new world of opportunities never before experienced across a broad spectrum of applications. As these difficult to produce particles enter into more and more consumer and industrial products, manufacturers are left with a growing challenge: How do we produce these particles in an efficient and cost effective manner?

To begin to optimize the particle size reduction process, we must first ask ourselves a few questions.

First: Why do we process pigments and powders?

The answer to this question is different depending on your product, and your targeted results. Particle reduction can be used to:

  • Gain Color Strength
  • Gain Gloss
  • Build Transparency
  • Develop Opacity
  • Improve Conductivity
  • Reduce High Raw Material Cost
  • Or Increase Many Other Desirable Attributes
