TechPress 3™ Mounting Press

Mounting

The TechPress 3™ electro-hydraulic automatic mounting press is used to encapsulate samples for metallographic preparation.

The microprocessor-based system features 2 modes of operation; "manual input" and "one-touch programs", which includes a pre-loaded database with 80 adjustable programs, including parameters for mold size, single mount or duplexing, mounting resin, curing time and temperature, pressure and cooling time. 

Temperature can be displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius, and pressure can be displayed in either psi or BAR throughout the mounting procedure. Operator can choose to display instructions and menus on the 7" color LCD touchscreen in 10 common languages (English, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese).

Two mounts can be produced at one time in 5 minutes using the duplexing spacer.
