We have been working on this a long time. It’s a complicated endeavor. The burr carriers use 110mm sealed bearings (2) permanently mounted into a milled aluminum head to dissipate heat. Even the cooling fins have a purpose. The dedicated loop feedback servo motors to adjust the grind were a later addition to the design, but it allowed us to incorporate self-calibrating technology into the system. This means that when a roaster has a particular grind setting in mind, they can push the settings to their clients and be assured they will all be the same.
It even spins in reverse to clear and adjust the mills without obstructions.
The grinder is capable of handling any kind of coffee for any application and the output assemblies are currently printed in carbon fiber. Final revisions for the circuit boards are underway now.
We needed to keep the throat of the hopper very close to the mills and yet prevent rotation from scattering the beans back up into the grinder. We also needed to sweep any coffee grounds from the mills as part of the distribution system. Carbon fiber seems to work pretty well, just static dissipative enough to prevent attraction yet able to discharge reasonably well between uses.
We developed a grinding capsule as a module.
We use rare earth magnets to fix the funnel to the adjustment mechanism. We can use different funnel designs for different applications.
We are looking for manufacturing partners to finalize the design and take this to market.
