Polishing machine MASTERLAM 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 1.1

Automatic polishing machine with central pressure, oscillating head* and stock removal control*.

Automatic, single-plate ? 250 to 300 mm polishing machine with bidirectional rotation and variable speed. Touch screen controls, intuitive and user-friendly interface. MASTERLAM? machines are equipped with the best programming, parameter storage and export technologies. Control of the 4-circuit DISTRILAM?* dosing system directly integrated.

The MASTERLAM? 1.0 is equipped with a powerful central-pressure head, bidirectional rotation, variable speed and pressure. The distinctive feature of this polishing head is the oscillation function* with oscillation configurable both for amplitude and frequency.
Use of the oscillating head will allow you to achieve unrivalled levels of performance and versatility: the quality of flatness results is improved, stock removal is increased, the service life of polishing supports is increased (uniform wear due to use of the entire surface of the plate).

The MASTERLAM? 1.0, with the oscillation* option, is particularly efficient for polishing large-sized samples and for finishing and appearance polishing of mechanical prototypes or micro-series components.
A stock removal control system with an automatic ?stop at measurement? function is also available (accurate to 0.05 mm).

High performance cut-off wheels

These wheels were elaborated according to a well-defined specification (high quality abrasive and binder), which allows attaining high cutting performances. Usable on all cut-off machines available on the market, these cut-off wheels allow attaining such a quality level that downstream polishing operations will be shortened. Especially designed for production cutting or large dimensional cutting, they will reduce your operating costs. The constancy of the obtained results is guaranteed by a rigorous and controlled manufacturing process.

Precision cut-off wheels

Combine performance and versatility

Elaborated according to a very rigorous specification, These cut-off wheels offer the user a precision cutting thanks to the characteristics of its binder and the quality of its abrasives.

Hot mounting resins

To respond to all metallographic control and research situations, LAM PLAN developed and tested a range of hot mounting resins which allow obtaining perfectly adapted mountings regardless of the undertaken study. Each mounting resin is characterized by very specific physical and chemical qualities.

Cold mounting resins

Mainly intended for the metallography research sector, the LAM PLAN range of cold mounting resins offers many technical and economic advantages. The cold mounting resins are the solution for samples which do not withstand too high a pressure or temperature. In addition, they allow responding in a simple and efficient way to timely needs by circumventing the investment of a hot mounting press. You can precisely adjust the mounting volumes or the shape of the moulds simultaneously for a large quantity of samples.

Accessories for embedding
