Buehler SimpliMet 4000

The Fastest Mounting Press Designed for 24/7 Use. Eliminate bottlenecks at the mounting stage, rapidly transforming your cut samples into specimens ready for grinding and polishing.

  • The SimpliMet 4000, was tested in extreme conditions, and simulated the duty cycle of the busiest labs in the world, providing high reliability in continuous-use environments
  • The SimpliMet 4000 packs fast mounting cycles into limited bench space, optimizing productivity
  • Fast duplex mounting allows two mounts to be made during the same cycle with a negligible increase in cycle time
  • A simple user interface eliminates errors and protects the quality of your sample prep
  • The single-handed closure mechanism engages quickly, moving you right into your next task
