Offering milling flexibility and improved powder processing efficiency, The Fitzpatrick Company and Quadro Engineering SDx Series smart drive exchangeable platform is the world’s first production-scale milling and screening platform to offer three distinct powder processing solutions—Fitzpatrick’s FitzMill, Quadro’s Comil, and FlexSift security screening technologies—on a single, common drive.
The platform affords operators the ability to quickly and easily interchange the three heads to fulfill specific processing requirements, improve production efficiencies, and reduce bottlenecks. The target particle size distribution achieved currently on Fitzpatrick and Quadro equipment is achievable with the SDx, with the added benefit of reduced capital investment and cost of ownership by up to 75%.
The SDx Series utilizes Smart-detect, a unique equipment feature that automatically recognizes the head being installed and adjusts rpm to the appropriate level for optimum material processing, reducing the potential for operator error.
Users can opt for a single platform and select the most appropriate powder processing technology to suit the application, affording total flexibility, minimizing capital investment, and reducing overall space requirements.
