Metalographic Preparation Line
Our facility is equipped for complete metallographic sample preparation, starting with various cutting machines from band saws, large 20” cut-off wheels to smaller 4” diamond impregnated discs.
Our embedding equipment includes regular hot molding presses providing metallographic molds made of Bakelite, Transoptic or conductive powders, as well as a large variety of epoxy-resin combinations used for ambient temperature mounting.
Grinding and polishing is achieved either through an automated grinding/polishing line or through manual operation for special samples. We strive to ensure the best edge retention possible to allow examination of the substrate in the immediate vicinity of the sample surface. We have the capacity to etch a wide range of metallic materials, both by conventional chemical etching and electro-etching.
