SimpliMet 4000: Fast Mounting Press Designed for 24/7 Use

SimpliMet 4000 is the fastest mounting press designed for 24/7 use. It removes bottlenecks at the mounting stage, quickly transforming the cut samples to specimens ready for grinding and polishing.


High reliability when used in 24/7 environments

  • The SimpliMet 4000, was tested to simulate the duty cycle of the world’s busiest laboratories, delivering high reliability in continuous use environments.

Optimize Productivity in Available Bench Space

  • The SimpliMet 4000 packs fast mounting cycles into limited bench space, thus optimizing productivity. Capacity can be doubled for the same amount of space by replacing slower and larger presses.
  • Fast duplex mounting enables making two mounts during the same cycle with negligible increase in cycle time.

Save time and protect sample quality

  • Intuitive user interface prevents errors and protects the quality of the sample preparation. Everything you need is right on the front panel.
  • User can use their press immediately out of the box. New employees can be trained quickly and efficiently.
  • The single handed closure mechanism engages rapidly, allowing users to move directly into their next task.
