Lödige is a global leading supplier of mixers, coating systems, granulators, dryers and reactors. As the inventor of the Ploughshare Mixers, Lödige has decades of experience in the process technology. Machines and process systems are at home in the pharmaceutical and food industry just as well as in the building materials industry, environment, minerals and ores but also chemicals and plastics.
Lödige is specialised in the industrial mixing, drying, reacting, coating and granulating. Lödige deals with bulk products, granulates, powders, pastes, dust and sludge. The specific requirements of the different branches of industry are very well known, the coating of tablets with film or sugar coat for the pharmaceutical industry just as the mixing of building materials or the drying of recycling materials.
Batch or continuous mixers, ringlayer mixers for high throughputs, mixing reactors for operation under high pressures, laboratory mixers, mixing granulators, vacuum dryers or fluid bed systems… Lödige has the solution. Technical know-how and support are a matter of course for Lödige. All process steps like mixing, drying, reacting, coating and granulating can be performed in the test centre.
Lödige provides customer support worldwide during the whole lifetime of the machines. An experienced team in Paderborn/Germany and the colleagues in the USA, Spain, India and China make it possible to perform maintenance works rapidly.
Lödige has supplied more than 35,000 machines all over the world in the last 80 years. Lödige is still a family-owned company in the third generation. Around 290 people are working on the site in Paderborn/Germany. The total turnover amounts to approx. 60 million euros.
The ploughshare mixers for batch operation use the mixing and fluid process introduced to mixing technology by Lödige. High-quality mixes are achieved through equipment with tools which are adapted perfectly to the respective task. Mode of operation: The fluidised bed generated mechanically achieves intensive separation of particles, especially in the upper area of the mixing drum. This optimizes the surface contact of the particles with liquids permitting lump-free mixing and homogeneous distribution. Lödige ploughshare mixers can be used for a wide range of applications – for processing bulk solids (powdery, grainy, fibrous) or pumpable products. Products of different bulk density and structure can be easily mixed. Choppers can be additionally installed in the mixing drum to increase the turbulence in the mixing process. This also ensures the mixing of fine particles in small quantity and enables the dispersion of product agglomerations and primary particles. We develop customised solutions, adapted perfectly to your application and product, for any of your tasks. • Extremely high mixing quality • Short mixing times • Reproducibility of batches • Gentle product treatment • High availability • Low-maintenance mixer concept • Easy accessibility of all internal mixer components • Multi-stage processes in one machine
