Laboratory Grinders, Cutters and Polishers

Laboratory Grinders, Cutters and Polishers are used to physically alter samples before testing. Most of the equipment available today includes some degree of automation.

Grinders are used to grind or homogenize rigid, soft, wet, dry, flexible, fragile, and fibrous samples. A variety of mill types can be used to produce coarse, mid-range, and fine results, down to the nanometre scale.

Cutters enable precise cutting of small samples in a wide range of shapes. Some cutting devices feature multiple cutting modes for maximum versatility and optimal use of space.

Polishers are used to produce a sample that is free of deformations and scratches, with a highly reflective sample surface.
