The MultiPrep™ System enables precise semiautomatic sample preparation of a wide range of materials for microscopic (optical, SEM, FIB, TEM, AFM, etc.) evaluation.
Capabilities include parallel polishing, angle polishing, site-specific polishing or any combination thereof. It provides reproducible results by eliminating inconsistencies between users, regardless of their skill.
Dual micrometers (pitch and roll) allow precise sample tilt adjustments relative to the abrasive plane. A rigid Z-indexing spindle maintains the predefined geometric orientation throughout the grinding/polishing process. Digital indicators enable quantifiable material removal, which can be monitored real-time, or preset for unattended operation. Variable speed rotation and oscillation maximize use of the entire grinding/polishing disc and minimize artifacts. Adjustable load control expands its capability to handle a range of small (delicate) to large samples.
MultiPrep Positioning Head Features:
Front digital indicator to display real-time material removal (sample advancement), 1 µm resolution
Precision spindle that indexes the sample perpendicular to the platen, and can rotate simultaneously
Dual axis, micrometer controlled angular positioning of the sample (pitch and roll): +10°/-2.5° range (0.02° increments)
Rear digital indicator to display vertical positioning (static) with zeroing function, 1 µm resolution
Automatic sample oscillation, adjustable sweep with 6 speeds
Cam-locking system that eliminates the need for tools and allows for precise repositioning of fixtures
7" LCD touchscreen with keypad entry to control all functions
Clockwise/counterclockwise platen rotation
