Eirich SmartFix for changing mixing tools

Eirich has developed a new system for changing beaters in production mixers which reduces downtime and cuts cost. It is also ideally suited for low-cost retrofitting.

Operators need to change high­wear rotor tool parts on a regular basis because the condition of these parts has a major influence on the quality of the end product. Changing mixing tool parts used to take as long as several hours. The tension had to be released on all beaters mounted on the rotor before worn beaters could be replaced using muscle power and prying tools.
With the Eirich quick-change SmartFix system the replacement of the beaters is now a simple procedure and only takes a few minutes. One feature is the ability to easily swap beaters that have wear reserves with beaters which are located in zones with greater stress and show higher wear, making maximum use of the material.
Migrating to the new system is easy, because there is no need to replace the rotor or purchase a new rotor shaft. In most cases, only the tool support disks have to be re­placed. The ability to continue using existing spare parts is a big advantage. The new SmartFix system, for which a patent application has been filed, is available as a retrofit or conversion kit for all Eirich production mixers with capacities of 75 liters or more.
