Cutting and Polishing is widespread throughout industry and research. Whether preparing samples for metallography, SEM, AFM, FT-IR spectroscopy depth profiling, and related microscopy methods or straightforward requirements for producing representative polished surfaces of bulk engineering materials or components, ULTRA TEC offers a wide range of precision surface and sample preparation equipment and techniques to meet the challenge.
ULTRASLICE saws provide high versatility and an unbeatable combination of features for materials labs. The in-built traveling table feed provides the highest versatility holding for samples of all shapes and sizes. Long linear cuts may also be made for metallurgical failure analysis applications, with a motor robust and fast enough to handle large metallic specimens as easily as small and soft polymers and ceramics.
Lapping & Polishing
ULTRAPOL End & Edge Polisher accepts ‘Quick Release’ workholders. For metallographic and materialographic sample preparation this approach allows for the convenient production of encapsulated samples. Edge polisher holders and SEM stub holders further extend the use of the system for precision cross-sectioning applications.
A recent enhancement is the Digital Angle Dial upgrade, which allows for extremely accurate angles to be achieved on the sample.
For cost-effective processing the ULTRAPOL Basic can be used with a series of manual fixtures, either held by hand, or with the use of a positioning device -- the Long Arm.
For more exacting flatness or parallelism requirements, our ULTRAPOL Advance Polisher works with an in-situ ULTRACOLLIMATOR. ULTRAPOL Advance offers advanced stub workholders to fit most SEM's and FIB's and a user-friendly interface for flat sample production.
MULTIPOL provides the answer for achieving the ultimate flatness on larger samples such as geological specimens, crystals and serial sections.
