Hexamatic

The fully automatic, compact preparation system that takes automatic specimen preparation to a new level

Hexamatic facts

  • Advanced monitoring functions for consistent preparation results
  • Advanced cleaning and drying functions
  • Automatic sensor detection of specimen holders or mover plates

Hexamatic can process both specimen holders and specimen mover plates for individual specimens. Hexamatic can handle the production of many similar specimens or a few individual specimens of a certain type. Central force is applied to specimen holders that can hold differently shaped specimens, while force is applied independently to individual specimens in specimen mover plates.

Extreme versatility

Hexamatic can be used for preparation of both individual specimens and specimen holders. It can be used with a conveyor for uninterrupted preparation of larger series, or for fully automatic preparation of individual holders. It is also ideal for the preparation of materials requiring different preparation methods due to the automatic exchange of up to eight varying preparation surfaces.

Reproducibility

Once a specimen holder or specimen mover plate is inserted in the conveyor, built-in sensors automatically detect their presence. This is displayed on the graphical touchscreen user interface, and a preparation method for each individual holder can easily be selected, ensuring automated reproducibility independently of the operator.

Adaptability

Hexamatic is ideal for the preparation of materials requiring different preparation methods due to the automatic exchange of up to eight distinct preparation surfaces. It can process both specimen holders and specimen mover plates for individual specimens without requiring operator attention. You can use it for uninterrupted preparation of larger series or the fully automatic preparation of individual holders, with or without the conveyor if space is an issue. The conveyor is necessary for uninterrupted preparation of larger series.
