Hielscher Ultrasonics specializes in the design and manufacturing of high power ultrasonic homogenizers for lab, bench-top and production level. Ultrasonic power is an effective and energy-efficient means to apply high shear and intense stress to liquids, powder/liquid mixtures and slurries. This makes it a strong alternative to high shear mixers, high pressure homogenizers and agitated bead mills.Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications span mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions.

Hielscher ultrasonic devices are used in the synthesis of nanomaterials as well as in the formulation of compounds and composites containing nanomaterials. This includes the use of ultrasonics during precipitation and the deagglomeration of nano-size materials, like metal oxides or carbon nanotubes.

Ultrasound is used in the formulation of paints and coatings for: emulsification of polymers dispersing and fine milling of pigments size reduction of .

Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative for the cleaning of continuous materials, such as wire and cable, tape or tubes. The effect of the cavitation generated by the ultrasonic power removes lubrication residues like oil or grease, soaps, stearates or dust.

The Mel-Build policy.
We are developing for user efficiency of Transmission Electron Microscopes.
We are developing user friendly gadgets for all Transmission Electron Microscope users.
We are developing for science advancement.
We are to meliorate building of technology for users all over the world.

The story of Mel-Build since 2005.
First we realized the strong technological needs for further development of 3D Tomography.
Our first challenge was to make it possible to move a TEM sample for crystalline nanostructures.
The project was to develop a completely new specimen holder for 3D tomography purposes.
This project started in the summer of 2005, it was involving several engineers and high level TEM users.
The project itself succeeded, and as another result the company Mel-Build was founded.
New ideas and technology are co-developed by Mel-Build and Kyushu university.
