LectroPol-5 electrolytic polishing machine
LectroPol-5 is designed for automatized electrolytic polishing and etching of metallographic specimens.
LectroPol-5 is equipped with scanning function that allows to determine the correct voltage for both polishing (0–100 V at max. 6 A) and etching (0–25 V at max. 6 A). The device has a database of 10 polishing and etching methods for various materials. Other methods can be defined by user. The biggest advantage of LectroPol-5 is combination of short preparation times and high reproducibility.
