Thin Section Machine For Large & Multiple Samples

This thin section machine has a large window and a sealed LED lamp in the cutting chamber allowing safe observation of the cutting process. The large, T-slotted feed table and generous work area can accommodate a variety of different clamping devices. The feed table also has a long travel depth making this thin section machine ideal for cutting long or deep samples in a single pass. A side access port makes it possible to make transverse sections on long core samples and a stainless steel tray catches small specimens. The precision cutting of this machine can eliminate the need for grinding action before lapping the specimen.

Thin Section Machine

The Servocut 402-AA has X-Y-Z triple axes cutting capability:

  • Z-axis Chop cutting: The specimen is clamped and the cut-off wheel approaches the specimen
  • Y-axis Table-feed cutting: Feeds clamped specimen into a rotating cut-off wheel using the T-slotted feed table
  • X-axis Parallel Cutting (optional): Parallel serial sectioning in the x-axis with optional movable x-bed

Optional integrated vacuum pump allows cutting of not only large rock samples, but also slide mounted sections. A standard 80 mm diameter outlet for fume extraction is at the back of the hood. Self cleaning option available.

* X-axis Parallel Cutting (optional) with machine model 402-AA-AX ** Optional cutting methods for heavy-duty cutting applications. Segment Cut: For difficult and complex shaped materials. Diagonal Cut: For increased cutting capacity. Step Cut: For extra hard materials.

All of our cutting machines can be modified to provide cutting requirements on most materials. Other versions available.

Kemet offer a range of vacuum fixtures which give the Servocut potential for cutting either multiple standard slide mounted specimens, or custom vacuum fixtures for special slide sizes.
