The ATM Hot Mounting Press OPAL X-Press is a modular hot mounting press for fast and simultaneous, independent mounting of different materialographic specimens. The modularity of the Opal X-Press allows for optimum configuration for different sample sizes according to customer requirements.

The basic device contains the control interface and one mold assembly. It is available in 2 versions: The ATM Hot Mounting Press OPAL X-Press 2: can be equipped with one additional pressing units (total up to 2 pressing units).

The ATM Hot Mounting Press OPAL X-Press 4: can be equipped with up to three additional pressing units (total up to 4 pressing units).
