IsoMet 1000: How to Set Up the Table Attachment
The Buehler IsoMet 1000 has the ability to be used as a gravity fed sectioning machine or as a hand-fed sectioning machine with a flat table. For sectioning of parts like electronic circuit boards which are harder to clamp, it can be ideal to hand-feed the part to ensure a good quality cut. To convert the machine to a hand-fed saw with a flat surface, disassemble the gravity fed sample holder and install the Table Saw Attachment (11-2182). We also highly recommend the Table Saw Splash Guard (11-2186) which increases safety during use.
EcoMet 30 Grinder Polisher Introduction
The EcoMet 30 provides simple operation for manual grinding and polishing. The comfortable splash guard design allows for excellent control while holding a part. Easy to use and easy to clean. Durability tested over 2500 hours and flexible enough to be compatible with 8in [203mm], 10in [254mm] and 12in [305mm] platens
How to Add Pigment to Epoxy
This video is a brief demonstration on how to add pigment to Buehler’s epoxy systems. Pigments are added to epoxies to help create contrast between the specimen and mount. Pigments can also highlight cracks and pores when using darkfield microscopy.
Release Agent to SamplKup
This video is a demonstration on how to apply Release Agent to SamplKup molds. Buehler’s Release Agents help prevent mounts from sticking to the molds during mounting.
SimpliVac Vacuum System Demo
This video demonstrates the SimpliVac vacuum mounting system which is uniquely able to apply multiple vacuum cycles and thereby optimize impregnation of porous samples with epoxy resins.
VibroMet 2 Vibratory Polisher Best Practices
Vibratory polishing is used on a variety of metallographic samples that require a high quality surface. This video demonstrates how to use the polisher from start to finish. Based on the types of samples and materials being prepared, it explains the variety of holders, polishing cloths and suspensions available. The end result is samples free of scratches, superior flatness, and edge and inclusion retention with minimal relief.
Wilson UH4000 Universal Tester Introduction
The UH4000 series universal hardness tester is designed for high volume production labs and production floor. The UH4000 series is available in two different configurations, i.e. the UH4250 and UH4750. Universal hardness testers are designed to perform several hardness scales with one machine, in most cases for higher loads greater than 5kgf.
Wilson VH1102 & VH1202 Micro-Hardness Tester Introduction
The Wilson VH1002-series offer a versatile, affordable, and reliable solution for accurate Knoop and Vickers hardness testing, both for quality control and for metallurgical research applications. The VH1002-series are easy to automate with the powerful DiaMet™ software.
Wilson VH3300 Hardness Tester Introduction
The new Wilson VH3300 microhardness test system features a 6-position test head with up to three indenters and three zoom objectives, an automated X/Y sample stage available in two sizes (180 mm x 180 mm as standard) and a powerful image analysis system. A purpose-designed collision protection system helps to avoid accidental damage to the indenters and objectives due to operator errors
Buehler's Heat Treat Solutions
This video displays and explains one of Buehler’s efficient ways how such a quality control process can be executed with the necessary hardness testing equipment, sample preparation machines and the high quality consumables that stand for its own
