2.3. Cutters with linear moving bed cut
The PowerMet 3000 and PowerMet 6000 abrasive cutters are robust cutters used for
laboratory and production applications. The machines use a moving bed arrangement, with
the movement of the cutting table achieved manually by rotating the handle. Optionally,
automatic motion of the table can be installed. The vertical position of the cutting arm is
motorized and set from the control panel, a feature which allows optimal usage of the cutting
wheel. The position of the cutting wheel can be adjusted in the x (left-right) axis for cutting in
series or parallel cutting. The motor is mounted behind the cutting chamber, thus allowing
greater room for positioning of large pieces.

NOTE: The cutters are delivered without clamping devices. Suitable clamping devices must be specified separately
according to your application.
Abrasive chop cutters using Orbital Technology. Orbital cutting technology offers advantages
in comparison to the traditional chop cut in that the contact area between abrasive wheel and
the sample is kept as small as possible (MACC = Minimal Area of Contact Cutting). This is
achieved by the eccentric rotation of the wheel. Thus the wheel continuously changes its
position and has only a small point of contact with the sample. With the orbital cutting
technology you receive fast and deformation-free cuts, and can cut large samples and/or
samples which are difficult to cut with the normal chop cut. Another advantage with orbital
cutting technology is the cooling agent can flow directly into the cutting area, increasing the
cooling efficiency and preventing unwanted overheating.

9. Fully Automated Preparation of Specimens
The BuehlerVanguard is a fully-automatic grinding and polishing system for sample
preparation. After the specimens have been fixed in the specimen holder, the operator
chooses the preparation parameters for up to six processing steps, which continue without
further operator handling. The platen exchange and cleaning procedure between the
preparation stages is microprocessor-controlled. The programming is done via user- friendly
software and can be entered or modified via easy-to-use controls on the touch panel. The
BuehlerVanguard system offers the possibility to use the central or individual load specimen
holders. A robotic arm transports the platen into the grinding polishing base. The abrasive
suspensions, such as diamond suspensions, are sprayed with an integrated dispensing system
onto the platen. In the cleaning station, the entire specimen holder is cleaned in an ultra-sonic
tank where it is cold or warm air-dried.
The compact size of BuehlerVanguard allows its use in the metallography laboratory without
large expenditure. The installation requires only about 1m on your table. A water inlet and
outlet is needed; as is a compressed air supply.

10. Manual Grinding Fixtures
Flat cross-sections with hand preparation are achievable with manual specimen holders. After
completion, the sample can be easily removed. For grinding, the sample is inserted into the
holder and locked with a screw. The sample can then be prepared until it reaches a ceramic
ring that has been set with the thickness of material that has to be removed. The ceramic ring
on the specimen holder prevents grinding beyond the preset measurement. The thin-section
hand specimen holder is particularly suitable for grinding thin-sections fixed on glass slides.
With both types of holder, the accuracy reaches the μm-range.

11. Thin Sections and Petrography
Making a thin section normally requires special techniques for cutting the samples. Delta
PetroCut is an abrasive cutter, specially designed for cutting rocks, minerals, stone, glass,
concrete or similar materials. PetroThin is an easy to use thin sectioning system. A built-in
vacuum pump provides a strong positive vacuum to the universal chuck to ensure all
petrographic slides will be held in place during resectioning and grinding. In the fist step, the
sample is resectioned with a blade. The next step is grinding the sample to desired thickness
with a cup grinder. Besides PetroCut and PetroThin, IsoMet precision cutters can also be used
for cutting specimens. We offer a wide variety of vises. IsoMet 5000 together with cup
grinders can be used for grinding samples.
The preparation of thin sections can be done on most of our regular Grinder-Polishers (see
previous sections). Preparation can be done manually on manual Grinder-Polishers or semiautomatic with a Power Head utilizing single force specimen holders.
MiniMet 1000 also offers special accessories for thin section sample preparation.

14. Electrolytic Polishing and Etching
Electrolytic polishing profits by the following process: If two metal electrodes are submerged
in an electrically conducting liquid under direct current, a flow of ions takes place from the
anode to the cathode. Thus the metal atoms of the anode dissolve the electrolyte or deposits
on the cathode. With electrolytic polishing, this process allows the raised areas of the sample
surface, switched as anode, to be removed so that a polished surface will be obtained under
certain conditions. The polishing process usually takes not more than 30 seconds thus saving
considerable time compared with mechanical preparation. Electrolytic polishing is suitable for
all homogeneous materials and alloys. Due to the varying potential differences between
individual phases and/or components, heterogeneous alloys and compound materials are less
suitable for electrolytic polishing/etching operations.

17.5. OmniMet MHT Computer-assisted Test Systems
(Vickers and Knoop)
The computer-controlled hardness test systems from the OmniMet MHT series allow you to
accomplish hardness tests with computer control and less user involvement. For producing a
series of measurements, you must define only the desired test and/or load sequence and then
position the sample. For this you move the sample with the joystick on the control console to
the zero point of the series of measurements (Sample edge or arbitrary starting position). You
can observe and find the position comfortably from the live image of the video camera on the
computer monitor. Afterwards you give the measuring direction, by turning an arrow on the
screen in the desired direction. Setting the indents takes place afterwards fully automatically
with the help of the stepping motor-driven scanning stage. The accurate determination of the
hardness values takes place afterwards either fully automatically via the image analysis
program or interactively via the use of measuring tools with the mouse. The report and
graphic evaluation of the measurements is done simply via one click on an icon.
Calculation of the Case Hardness Depth according to DIN EN ISO 2639, statistical data
calculation. Warning message, when the measured diagonals differ by more than 5% (or a
user defined value). Conversion of the measurement data according to Rockwell scales.
Display of more than one hardness profile in one diagram. 8 fixed and 19 freely definable
datafields for entry of specimen identification information, free definition of the report
format. Data can be exported to MS-Access, MS-Excel or MS-Word. Database for settings and
measurements (long term storage, ability to “sign off” cases, search for results, quick view of
diagrams etc). Free "Sample Viewer" software for reviewing measurements within a network
environment.

17.6. OmniMet MHT-M Indentation Measuring System
OmniMet MHT-M is a user friendly program for hardness indentation measurement from the
monitor of your computer. Measurement and documentation of Vickers and Knoop
indentations can be done automatically by image analysis, or by the operator moving the
measuring lines with the mouse. Along with individual measurement of single indents,
profiles can be generated. The fully-automatic measurement guarantees reproducable and
operator-independent measurement results. Fatigue-free operation and reproducibility of
measurement results.
A pre-condition for installing the system is the connection of a video camera to the hardness
tester. Set-up and administration of the operation and report writing can be done with a few
mouse-clicks. Graphic display of the hardness values, results diagram displayed during the
measurement. Free definition of the measurement profile (line, zig-zag or irregular)
Calculation of the Case Hardness Depth according to DIN EN ISO 2639, statistical data
calculation. Warning message, when the measured diagonals differ by more than 5% (or a
user defined value). Conversion of the measurement data according to Rockwell scales.
Display of more than one hardness profile in one diagram. 8 fixed and 19 free definable
datafields for entry of specimen identification information, free definition of the report

burn-free consisten cuts.
Delta-Series
PowerMet 3000
The PowerMet 3000 abrasive cutter is a robust cutter used for
laboratory and production applications. The machine uses a
moving bed arrangement. The vertical position of the cutting
arm is motorized and set from the control panel. The motor is
mounted behind the cutting chamber, thus allowing greater
room for positioning of large pieces.
A family of Orbital and Chop Cutters, modular in design. Orbital cutting technology offers advantages in comparison to the
traditional chop cut in that the contact area between abrasive
wheel and the sample is kept as small as possible (MACC =
Minimal Area of Contact Cutting). This is achieved by the
eccentric rotation of the wheel. Thus the wheel continuously
changes its position and has only a small point of contact with
the sample. All Delta Cutters of the Automatic Chop cut-series
are equipped with automatic feed. The SMARTCUT System
automatically adjusts the feed rate of the motor and prevents
damage to the sample or the equipment.
The Delta Manual Abrasive Cutter is a rugged abrasive cutter
that increases productivity using a powerful motor and easyto-use control panel.

rate to provide consistent qualtity cuts. The sample positioning
system allows for precise sectioning of delicate specimens
with minimal deformation. User selectable feed rates and the
SMARTCUT system automatically adjust to give fast precision
cuts very time. IsoMet 5000 comes with increased level of
automation with the addition of 55 method programmability.
