Several attempts have been carried out in recent years in order to quantify the energy transfer phenomena occurring during the milling process. Such attempts have been substantially based on the assumption that collision is the main event by which energy is transferred from the milling tools to the powder under processing. No direct evidence, however, has been reported up to now confirming the modelisations appeared in literature. In the present work experimental measurements of the power consumption (electrical and mechanical) during milling are reported. The obtained results strongly support a collision model regardless the level of filling of the milling vessel. Further, the power measurements are in quite good agreement with those predicted by the collision model.
