Sigma blade for batch production

Double sigma blade batch production systems allow you to create mixtures of a wide variety of materials such as pharmaceuticals, food products or others. These machines have a great amount of work capacity and can also be custom-made depending on your needs or the size of your production site.

MX Guittard can be equipped with double sigma blades and mono screws. In any case, we can assure you that our experience working with manufacturers makes us perfectly capable of assisting you in your decision making process and in choosing the choice of the model that will be installed on your production site.
