IsoMet® 1000 Precision Saw from Buehler
IsoMet® 1000 is a precision sectioning saw designed for cutting
various types of materials with minimal deformation. Its low kerf loss
capability and great versatility in holding all types of sample shapes
and configurations, gives today's laboratory a precision sectioning
tool capable of cutting viturally any material including brittle or
ductile metals, composites, cements, laminates, plastics, electronic
devices and biomaterials. When equipped with the optional rotating
chuck, sectioning times are dramatically reduced.
- Simple to operate, gravity fed membrane panel controls
- Rotating vise for larger samples
- Optional table saw attachment
- 0.17Hp motor
(includes 6in [152mm] IsoMet® Blade for sectioning electronic
substrates, assorted weights, dressing stick, Cool 2 Fluid, flanges and
the following chucks: single saddle, irregular specimen and wafer)
The first step to quality sample preparation is selecting the proper
cutting method, one that will not introduce structural damage or
defects to the area under analysis. The IsoMet® 1000 Precision Saw was
designed for today’s material analyst who demands sample integrity and
rapid sectioning capabilities. This saw quickly sections a broad range
of materials including:
- Electronic Components
A wide selection of chucks, fixtures, goniometers and rotating vises
guarantee the proper fixturing of samples. The gravity feed loading
design will not “force feed” the sample into the diamond wafering
blade, minimizing sample deformation. This design allows the IsoMet®
1000 to achieve an as-cut surface which is as free as possible of
damage and distortion. The IsoMet® 1000 can be set to turn itself off
at a predetermined cutting depth or at the completion of the section.
Increase Versatility The IsoMet®
1000 can be equipped with
an optional rotating chuck which effectively reduces the blade-sample
contact area and frictional heat for quickly sectioning hard materials.
This accessory will dramatically reduce sectioning time.
size prohibits the use of standard chucks, the optional cutting table
can be installed for manually sectioning or trimming biomaterials or
Improved cutting performance is achieved by
selecting the proper wafering blade for the material. Buehler’s
application-specific wafering blade match the material cutting needs to
provide both minimal sectioning time and sample deformation.
The IsoMet® 1000’s cutting compartment is fully
enclosed. The transparent cutting hood can be removed and replaced with
the accessory Table Saw Attachment when sectioning larger samples that
require a greater clearance.
The removable coolant tray is accessible
from the front of the machine for fast cleaning and easy retrieval of
cut samples. The coolant tray also incorporates the blade dressing
device which rapidly dresses the diamond wheel while sample sectioning
The IsoMet® 1000 Precision Sectioning Saw offers
versatility and power for sectioning today’s advanced materials.
