A mixer from IKA (Wilmington, N.C., U.S.A.), designed for use in research and development, features a new integrated speed control. The control's variable-frequency drive system mounts directly on the motor to reduce the workspace needed to accommodate previous models. The mixer is operated with a handheld unit. The company says that the new design's modular belt drive unit enables the R&D mixer's tip speed to match tip speeds on IKA's production mixers, avoiding costly reformulation or re-engineering during production start-ups, due to quality mismatches between lab and production batches.
