Complete Automatic Thin Sectioning Center
The Micro-Petralab is heavily constructed of the highest quality noncorroding materials and carries our warranty for two full years. Superior engineering and the finest precision craftsmanship truly make the Micro-Petralab the ultimate in fine thin sectioning equipment.
Holds (4) 27 x 46 mm glass slides (standard). Other sizes available are: (3) 1" x 3", (3) 2" x 2", and (2) 2" x 3". Chuck "rapid travels" between saw cuts to save time and has a vacuum on/off valve at each station.
|Satellite Chucks||Holds 4 rock specimens of odd shapes up to approx. 130 cubic cm ea. Chucks slowly rotate as specimens are fed to the saw blade for even, consistent cutting.|
|Automatic Feeding System||Electronically controlled, variable speed drive. A specially designed adjustable slip clutch maintains constant, even cutting pressure. Eliminates "jam-ups" and prevents damage to machine or specimen.|
Two included. Automatically surface grinds specimens mounted in the satellite and vacuum chucks. Each head includes a 4" dia. diamond grinding wheel, large dia. micron dial adjustment (graduated in 3 micron increments), and adjustable stop screw.
|Lapping Center||8" dia. diamond lapping plate, variable speed control (0 to 400 rpm), and adjustable coolant supply. Lapping plates are easily interchanged with optional polishing plates.|
|Trim Saw||Built-in unit with exclusive tilt-out feature makes changing blades fast and easy. Includes fold-back blade guard and coolant system.|
|Spindles||Precision machined from stainless steel with adjustment to completely eliminated "end-play". Stainless steel ball bearings, pre-lubed, sealed and housed in a precision stainless steel quills.|
|Spindle Motor||3/4 HP, 2 speed motor. If required, the motor may be easily removed without affecting the machine alignment.|
|Diamond Blades||Main Saw: 8" dia. x .045" thick, 1/8" diamond depth, continuous rim. Trim Saw: 6" dia. x .035" thick, 1/8" diamond depth, highest quality segmented type.|
|Coolant System||Built-in recirculating pump. Pull-out stainless steel coolant tray for easy cleaning. Coolant is supplied to the cutting area with flow control. Provisions for using tap water cooling for ultra-purity and cooling efficiency.|
|Size||25" (63.5 cm) wide x 23" (58.4 cm) high x 30" (76.2 cm) deep.|
|Net Weight||325 lbs. (147.2 kg)|
|Power Requirements||120V 60HZ for Domestic Model or 240V 50HZ for Export Model|
