Time/Money Saved; Any Operator Use


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Convert components into powder worthy of encapsulation

The SM300 cutting mill is able to pulverize much of any material that is put into its rotating maw. Its ease of use allows for even the most knuckle-headed of employees to operate it, care for it, and clean it. Before our acquisition of this machine, we were using a VitaMix to convert structured components into powder. Of course, that took ages for larger batches of material. Now, with the mill, we are able to save on time and energy. So, between the time/money saved and the efficacy of the machine as to the operators ability, it is a must purchase for any business that needs to cut, powder, mill, eviscerate, or otherwise reduce large particles in any way.

Fantastic customer service and products.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Analyzing feed and grain samples

This mill is the work horse of the department. It can handle almost everything you want to put through it. We would run dry ice and liquid nitrogen through it with wet samples and you may have to slow the speed down but it is amazing. Easy to take apart and clean. I have worked with other mills in the past and this one is by far the best. Outstanding customer service, they will answer all your questions and are prompt in replies. Would highly recommend.

Robust and precise crushing made to last


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Alternative combustion

The SM 300 Mill is very effective as it allows the processing of samples of all kinds. In my laboratory we grind wood, cardboard, paper, plastics of various types, in general, all kinds of municipal waste. It is a very robust mill that allows us to homogenize samples with a very uniform particle size according to the sieve used and very easy to use for anyone without almost any kind of training or experience. I am very happy with the service and the equipment, as the cost of the equipment in general is very acceptable since it is of very good quality which guarantees me savings in maintenance, spare parts and consumables. Since it is a very robust equipment, as it is made to last, definitely I would recommend it since I have the old model of the sm300 the sm2000 and after 10 years it works like the first day. The sm300 I am sure that its performance will be the same, if not better than the old model.

RETSCH cutting mills provide highly efficient primary size reduction of heterogeneous material mixes but are also suitable for grinding soft, medium-hard, elastic or fibrous samples. Cuttings mills offer a high level of operational safety and convenience.

For applications like small scale production of food, drugs or cosmetics, the high-performance model SM 300 is now available in a stainless steel 316L foodGrade version which meets the guidelines of the food and pharma industry. It is equipped with a long-stock hopper for easy feeding of materials like cannabis plant parts. All parts in contact with the sample are made of 316L in this configuration. Optionally, the rotor blades and the cutting bars are made of a FDA-certified stainless steel which is less prone to wear under constant stress than 316L. The unit can be equipped with an optional cyclone and a large 30 l receptacle (both stainless steel 316L) for collecting large sample volumes. Smooth surfaces ensure almost 100% sample recovery and easy cleaning.
