Accutom-10/-100

Precision cutting and grinding with a smart and intuitive user interface for higher productivity

Accutom facts

  • High precision
  • Shorter cutting time
  • Higher productivity
  • Perfect planeness
  • Easy to learn and use
  • 75-150 mm (3-6”) diameter cut-off wheel size
  • 150 mm (6”) diameter cup wheel size (Accutom-100)

The redesigned Accutom cut-off machines from Struers are optimized for precision and ease of use to give the user a head start in the drive for perfect specimens. Packed with easy-to-use functions, they enable world-class cutting precision with a minimum of effort. The Accutom-100 includes a MultiCut function for extra productivity, and a grinding mode with multiple bi-directional sweeps between steps to ensure perfect planeness.

World-class precision

Positioning with fingertip precision is easy. The operating keys on the control panel move the specimen holder in the X-direction with 5 or 100 μm increments, and the cut-off/cup wheel motor in the Y-direction. Mounting the specimen holder directly on the X-movement arm ensures a high level of precision and parallelism.

Easy to learn and use

An intuitive user interface provides a clear overview of each method and related cut-off wheels. A smart turn/push knob enables fast selection of settings and large icons provide an easy-to-understand overview of functions.

Optimum preparation quality

Grinding mode is available on Accutom-100 and can be used for all types of material using multiple bi-directional sweeps between movements in the X-direction to ensure perfect planeness. Two grinding modes are available for accurate control of material removal to achieve the optimum preparation result.

  • Accutom100 Rotation and oscillation

    Rotation and oscillation for shorter cutting time

    Rotation of the workpiece significantly reduces cutting time, e.g. for a tube or round workpiece, while oscillation prevents overheating when cutting hard materials.
