Ludman Industries offers a modern line of heavy-duty flaking mills designed to insure maximum efficiency with minimum maintenance based upon the proven Allis-Chalmers design. Ludman realizes that the modern day flaking mill application incorporates high bearing loads and feed capacity. That is why Ludman has remained true to tradition by offering a heavy-duty machine

Ludman Industries modern Flaking and Shredding Machines can also be supplied with new solid state controls that can maintain flake thickness within 1 thousands (0.001”) of an inch for precise product demands.

Ludman Industries success and philosophy has been to take the time and focus on heavy duty robust design with reliable long-term low maintenance construction.  This assures the long time payback with the proper upfront capital investment.

The type of mill used for any specific application is an important determining factor in the economical production of a high quality flaked material. The high flaking pressures demanded of a great many materials requires machinery designed of heavy and sturdy construction. Lightweight flaking mills, although less costly initially, are more expensive to maintain and eventually show their true cost in requiring excessive and frequent roll and bearing replacement.
