Interview with Mark Shutey, Director of Business Development & Marketing at Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Mark Shutey: The emergence of Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc. was a direct result of its technological superiority regarding the mixing of energetic materials for the manufacturing of munitions, propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. ResonantAcoustic® Mixers shine where conventional mixing systems begin to fail. The company has also established itself in the pharmaceutical mixing industry; battery/energy storage material manufacturing; chemical production industries; aerospace-adhesives and sealants; and many more.

The ResonantAcoustic® Mixer (RAM) product line harnesses the power of resonance (low-frequency sound) to generate powerful and efficient mixing of complex Solid-Solid; Solid-Liquid; Liquid-Gas; and Liquid-Liquid Blends. ResonantAcoustic® Mixers (RAM) are the universal mixing solution for all industrial mixing requirements and effectively eliminate the need for any other mechanically aided mixing processes/equipment. RAM systems provide:

  • greatly reduced mixing times;
    • increased efficiencies;
    • repeatability;
    • scalability;
  • bladeless – noncontact mixing processing;
  • durability / longevity / reliability;
    • custom engineered systems specific to the build;
    • eco-friendly operation; 
    • cost savings.

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

M.S: Significant developments for Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc. include the recent sale, delivery and installation of its ResonantAcoustic® Mixer 55 (RAM 55) to the U.S. Department of Defense at the McAllister Army Ammunition Plant in Oklahoma (U.S.A.) The RAM 55 is the largest batch system design currently offered by the company. 

Expanding upon its continued success with the RAM 55 batch processing system, Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc.’s primary focus moving forward is with its continuous system development. Resodyn Continuous Acoustic Mixing systems provide for essentially, unlimited, continuous product blending/mixing. These systems are custom engineered per each client’s specific materials and mixing needs and have been identified by the company as the FUTURE of  high throughput mixing.

E.E: What are the ranges of products?

M.S: ResonantAcoustic® Mixers are technologically consistent throughout the scale up process and deliver repeatable blends from bench to pilot to commercial production volumes. Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc. provides the following equipment portfolio with varying payload capacities:

  • LabRAM II     1 kg;
    • OmniRAM                 5 kg;
    • RAM 5                        36 kg;
    • RAM 55                      420 kg; and
    • CAM                           continuous production.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

M.S: Despite its 17 year history, Resodyn Acoustic Mixers Inc. finds its line of ResonantAcoustic® Mixers to remain in the early adoption – product life cycle. Its technology is widely accepted as the Best Mode Known for many industry applications, but the ingenuity and efficiency of its mixing process continue to open new avenues of experimentation and product development.  ResonantAcoustic® Mixing technology is the preferred embodiment for the invention of a multitude of patent applications.  

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

M.S: The COVID 19 Pandemic (2020) had a tremendous impact on virtually every global manufacturing industry. The industrial mixing/blending industry was no exception. Though in a recovery phase, product supply chain issues have created an industry wide delay in production times (2-3 years is not uncommon).  Due to the niche application of its products, Resodyn Acoustic Mixers, Inc. was somewhat unaffected by the pandemic.

Current market trends indicate significant growth rates for the Industrial Agitator Market over the next 5 years:

  • CAGR
  • N America                  6.3%
  • Europe                                   6.8%
  • APAC                         10.7%

Current predictions estimate a total global market of $2.6-$3.1 Billion (USD) by the year 2028.
