Buehler PlanarMet™ 300

  • Save space
  • Flexibility to adapt changing needs
  • High quality results
  • Benefits of planar grinders

The PlanarMet 300 bench top planar grinding machine with a high torque, continuous duty, 5.7Hp motor has an aggressive material removal rate normally seen in much larger, more expensive floor model machines. Convenience features such as an integrated auto wheel dressing and built in cooling make it easy to get consistent results

•Compact format that is just as powerful as large, floor-standing models

•Benchtop design ideal for direct integration to benchtop polishing steps

•Choice of grinding stones available for almost any material application

•Timed cycle provides flexibility in methods

•Auto Dressing System ensures fresh consistent abrasive surface giving consistent results.

•Controlled material depth removal (z-axis) is programmable and accurate to 0.01mm

•High water flow and unique manifold keeps specimens cool, minimizing subsurface damage

•Reduce process steps and grind 4X faster compared to SiC paper

•1 grinding stone equivalent to 1000 sheets of SiC paper

•Go from 3 grinding steps to just 1
