Technology and Know-how
Don’t settle for
just any solution.
Accept only
the best.

Nobody knows better

than you that the
grinding of raw material
requires a lot of energy -
more than any other
production steps in the
raw material industry.
A solution to this problem
is the highest challenge
for us all.

Christian Pfeiffer has

brought changes to the
market for grinding
systems for decades with
innovations to increase
performance capacities,
decrease energy con-
sumption and improve
product quality and
further developments for
greater productivity. Our
concepts have made us
the technological market
leader we are today.

solutions do. Every day
