Buehler – ITW Test & Measurement presented its developments from its extensive portfolio of products for metallography and hardness testing, ranging from manual to automated systems, and from sample preparation to measurement systems. The products release are the EcoMet 30 grinder-polishers, the IsoMet™ High Speed Pro precision cutter, the Wilson® VH1102/1202 micro hardness testers and many new consumables.
The EcoMet 30 grinder-polishers are user-friendly grinding-polishing systems that are ease to handle and use. They are metal cast and are available in manual and semi-automated versions, equipped with either one or two platens. All four types offer reliability and time-saving features which significantly reduce staff workload, and enable a corresponding increase in sample throughput. This is true particularly for labs using a dedicated machine for each sample preparation stage. Advanced cleaning features provided by these robust models also contribute significantly towards speeding up grinding and polishing processes.
