SG 200-Slicing and grinding machine


The SG200 is a semi-automatic device able to concomitantly prepare two thin sections rapidly and with great accuracy. The apparatus consists of a diamond-cutting blade, a diamond-grinding wheel and a versatile vacuum chuck for various slide sizes. The latter grasps the thin section during slicing and grinding operations. The sample is directly transferred from the cutting blade to the grinding wheel, by virtue of a manually rotated wheel, thereby facilitating the procedure and saving time. An adjustable screw controls the slicing thickness while a precision micrometer monitors grinding thickness of thin section.
