Specially designed for start-ups by Roff Milling, the SP-1 Maize Mill can be installed quickly and easily, requires minimal training to operate and low start-up cost to produce high-quality maize meal. It is made expressly for small to medium mill operations, small farming communities and entrepreneurs in Africa who won’t compromise on reliability or quality.

The SP-1 includes all the essential features and steps required to easily produce high-quality maize meal for ultimate profitability. You can produce high-quality, packed maize meal in four steps, namely cleaning, conditioning, degermination (optional) and milling. 

With the R-40 Maize Mill you can obtain the same best-in-class extraction rates delivered by the R-70 and C-80 mills. We’ve designed the R-40 for the entrepreneur who needs a streamlined, profitable and reliable mill based on proven technology.

Think compact, efficient design housed in multi-story frames featuring dust extraction and an offal collection line, and a milling capacity that will enable you to achieve success.

The R-70 - a compact, all-in-one maize mill is a true reflection of Roff’s commitment to building simple, high-quality milling machines that are a cut above the rest.

It’s perfect for the entrepreneur planning to enter the maize meal market with a milling capacity of up to 120 tons of maize per day.

Roff’s C-80 Maize Mill enables you to produce 5 tons of maize meal per hour. Sophisticated computer systems allow you to monitor and review capacity and extraction rates in real-time, and adjust settings as needed. Complete control means less downtime, more productivity, and more profits. The C-80 is also versatile, capable of producing two grades of maize meal, or it can be used as a grit plant.

What our clients say

The product that we are getting out of the R-70 is a phenomenal product that speaks for itself. We are competing with products made with European machinery and our customers are still buying our product. The R-70 is a winner in our book – we started off with one, today we own five of these machines.

Evans Killy

We chose a company close enough to us so that we could do research and development work together. We recognise Roff as a strategic partner that supplies the high quality equipment, support and R&D work whenever we want to do something new. It’s a successful partnership in our opinion.

Awie Griesel

Awie Griesel

I bought the Roff R-70 Mill because of Roff’s trusted reputation in the industry. When you buy a mill, you can import one which is risky, so I decided to rather choose a local company with the view of building a longstanding relationship with them.
