Plant Milling



Plant Cutting

RETSCH cutting mills are successfully used for the efficient preliminary size reduction of a huge variety of materials. Cuttings mills offer a high level of operational safety and convenience. The wide selection of accessories allows for easy adaptation to different application requirements.


Plant Cutting - Cutting Mill SM 200

Cutting mills are suitable for the grinding of soft, medium-hard, elastic, fibrous, and heterogeneous mixes of products. The new cutting mill SM 200 is a powerful and easy-to-operate instrument for efficient primary and fine size reduction. Cleaning is made particularly easy.

Within the group of the RETSCH cutting mills, it is the universal standard model which covers a vast range of applications with its strong 2.2 kW drive and 1,500 rpm rotor speed. When operated with the optional cyclone-suction-combination, the SM 200 is also suitable for grinding light sample materials or smaller quantities. In combination with the wide choice of bottom sieves, hoppers and collecting vessels, the mill can be easily adapted to varying application requirements.

Product Advantages

  • powerful size reduction with 2.2 kW drive
  • optimum cutting effects thanks to double acting cutting bars
  • quick and easy cleaning due to fold-back hopper, smooth surfaces and push-fit rotor
  • defined final fineness due to bottom sieves with aperture sizes from 0.25 - 20 mm
  • wide range of accessories including various hoppers, collection systems, rotors and sieves
  • highest safety standards due to engine brake, central locking device, electronic safety check and safety base frame
  • 18 cutting events per rotation with parallel section rotor

  • Plan Cutting - Cutting Mill SM 300

    Cutting mills are suitable for the grinding of soft, medium-hard, tough, elastic, fibrous, and heterogeneous mixes of products. The new Cutting Mill SM 300 excels especially in the tough jobs where other cutting mills fail.

    The high torque of the new 3 kW drive with RES technology (additional flywheel mass) allows for an exceptionally effective preliminary size reduction of heterogeneous mixtures, such as waste or electronic components. Analytical fineness is often achieved in one working run.

    The cutting mill is used successfully for a great variety of materials. The sample is only moderately warmed up during the grinding process so that the mill is perfectly suitable for grinding temperature-sensitive materials. Another innovation is the wide, freely selectable speed range from 700 to 3,000 min-1.

    When operated with the optional cyclone-suction-combination, the SM 300 is also suitable for grinding light sample materials or smaller quantities. In combination with the wide choice of bottom sieves, hoppers and collecting vessels, the mill can be easily adapted to varying application requirements.

    Product Advantages

  • powerful size reduction thanks to 3 kW drive with high torque and RES technology
  • perfect adaptation to application requirements by variable speed from 700 to 3,000 min-1
  • optimum cutting effects thanks to double acting cutting bars
  • quick and easy cleaning due to fold-back hopper, smooth surfaces and push-fit rotor
  • defined final fineness due to bottom sieves with aperture sizes from 0.25 - 20 mm
  • wide range of accessories including various hoppers, collection systems, rotors and sieves
  • highest safety standards due to engine brake, central locking device, electronic safety check and base frame
  • 18 cutting events per rotation with parallel section rotor

  • Plan Cutting - Cutting Mill SM 400 XL

    Cutting mills are suitable for the grinding of soft, medium-hard, tough, elastic, fibrous, and heterogeneous mixes of products. The Cutting Mill SM 400 XL is ideally suited for pre-cutting of large sample pieces but, depending on the application, may also achieve the required fineness in one step.

    The high torque of the new 3 kW drive allows for an exceptionally effective preliminary size reduction of heterogeneous mixtures, such as waste or electronic components.

    The cutting mill is used successfully for a great variety of materials. The sample is only moderately warmed up during the grinding process so that the mill is perfectly suitable for grinding temperature-sensitive materials. Due to the large open surface of the 240 mm x 240 mm bottom sieve, it is possible to grind large sample quantities and to increase the throughput.

    When operated with the optional cyclone-suction-combination, the SM 400 XL is also suitable for grinding light sample materials. In combination with the wide choice of bottom sieves, hoppers and collecting vessels, the mill can be easily adapted to varying application requirements.

    Product Advantages

  • powerful size reduction thanks to 3 kW drive
  • optimum cutting effects
  • accepts large feed sizes up to 170 mm x 220 mm
  • quick and easy cleaning due to fold-back hopper, smooth surfaces
  • defined final fineness due to bottom sieves with aperture sizes from 1 - 20 mm


  • Plant Size Validation

    RETSCH sieve shakers and sieving machines not only covers a wide measuring range. Thanks to different sieving motions and sieve sizes, the RETSCH sieve shaker range is suitable for almost any bulk material.


    Vibratory Sieve Shaker - AS 200 basic

    The vibratory sieve shakers of the series AS 200 are used in research & development, quality control of raw materials, interim and finished products as well as in production monitoring. The controllable electromagnetic drive offers an optimal adaption for every product. Sharp fractions are obtained even after short sieving times.

    The AS 200 basic sieve shaker is the economical alternative of the series with familiar RETSCH quality and reliability. It features digital setting and display of performance and time.

    Product Advantages

  • NEW: digital display of performance and time
  • suitable for dry and wet sieving
  • excellent separation efficiency even with short sieving times
  • efficient electromagnetic drive
  • 3-D throwing motion which ensures optimum use of the open sieve area and lets the sample move equally over the whole sieving surface
