The MetPrep™ and DualPrep™ Grinding/Polishing machines, when combined with the PH™ line of Power Heads, are powerful systems for semiautomatic operation, ideal for low to high volume sample preparation requirements. A wide variety of combinations provide ideal solutions that accommodate any application, lab or material.
Intuitive menu navigation with user-friendly push-button interface and backlit LCD make them easy to use and program. The microprocessor-based system allows up to 25 programmable steps including parameters for platen speed, comp/contra rotation (sample holder/platen), cycle time, fluid selection, sample force (LbF or N), sample rotation speed, water rinse and force reduction (on/off, %).
A "Procedure Development" mode allows in-process adjustments to platen speed, sample force and sample rotation speed to determine optimum parameters. The jog mode provides convenient "one-button" activation of the platen without activating the Power Head to allow initial charging of cloths or manual grinding/polishing.
