  • Buehler Vibromet 2 vibratory polisher

    Buehler Vibromet 2 vibratory polisher

    Used to prepare high quality polished surfaces on a wide variety of materials, including EBSD applications for SEM analysis. The 7200 cycles per minute horizontal motion produces a very effective polishing action, providing superior results, exceptional flatness and less deformation.

  • Buehler EcoMet 300/AutoMet 300 grinder/polisher

    Buehler EcoMet 300/AutoMet 300 grinder/polisher

    Used to prepare high quality polished surfaces on a wide variety of metallographic materials for microscopy analysis. May be used in automatic or manual modes.

  • Struers Lectro-pol-5 electrolytic polisher

    Struers Lectro-pol-5 electrolytic polisher

    Used for automatic, micro-processor controlled electrolytic polishing and etching of metallographic specimens. With a scanning function for easy determination of parameters, built-in safety features, and a database with methods for various materials, short polishing times and maximum reproducibility are achieved.

  • Buehler Abrasimatic 300

    Buehler Abrasimatic 300

    Used for sectioning larger specimens prior to metallographic preparation. Manual cutting action in 3 directions or automated cutting in one direction is possible.

  • Buehler IsoMet 5000

    Buehler IsoMet 5000

    Used for cutting smaller specimens, various material types, with minimal deformation. 2 micron sample positioning allows for precise sectioning of specimens. User selectable feed rate allows for ultimate versatility. Enhanced software options enable 55 programmed methods and automatic serial sectioning, as well as the ability to mount cup grinders for automatically grinding to depth.
