OPAL 410 Hot Mounting Press ATM

Fully automatic Opal 410 hot mounting metallographic press with an electro-hydraulic system and an included cooling system for automatic specimen cooling is used for the preparation of metallographic specimens.

The diameter of the mounting assembly is 30 mm and the system allows automatic mounting conditions presetting according to the used mounting agent. Epoxide based mounting agents, without or with particles for specimens conductivity for SEM analysis, are used for specimens preparation.
