AbraPol

An automatic, high-capacity machine with 350 mm disc size for fast and efficient grinding and polishing

AbraPol-20 facts

  • Sturdy, powerful and user-friendly design
  • Controlled material removal
  • Method database
  • Easy method creation
  • Maximum operator safety

AbraPol-20 is a powerful, automatic microprocessor-controlled machine for fast grinding and polishing of specimens. It is ideal for laboratories or workplaces carrying out quality control testing of very large specimens or a high volume of specimens. AbraPol-20 has a proven track record of daily and trouble-free, high volume metallographic specimen preparation – year after year.

High volume

AbraPol-20 is the fastest preparation machine on the market. The high, variable rotation speed of up to 500 rpm and the large area of the 350 mm preparation disc combine to set new standards in metallographic specimen preparation speed, increasing the number and size of specimens that can be prepared.

Robust and powerful design

AbraPol-20 sets new standards for grinding and polishing power. The main motor is built into a sturdy, welded frame and the whole machine is designed for vibration-free preparation.

Fast and cost-efficient grinding

AbraPol-20 saves time for the user and substantially reduces preparation cost. Reduced preparation time means significant savings of diamond suspension, while the large surface of the 350 mm disc considerably increases the lifetime of the grinding and polishing surfaces. This makes AbraPol-20 the most economic high-volume preparation machine available in the market.

KEY FUNCTIONS THAT ENSURE HIGH-VOLUME GRINDING AND POLISHING IN THE LAB OR IN THE PRODUCTION HALL

  • AbraPol user friendly design

    User-friendly design

    The user-friendly interface and large display makes it easy to select or create a preparation method. Only one operation key is necessary to select and start a preparation method. Operators
    with limited preparation experience can prepare various types of materials immediately.

    User-friendly design
  • AbraPol controlled material removal

    Controlled material removal

    A specified grinding time means that too much material may be removed in smaller specimens, while harder specimens may barely have been touched. AbraPol-20 is equipped with a sensor to accurately measure material removal. The measuring length of the removal rate sensor is 35 mm, enabling it to be used when grinding high specimens, glued on to a specimen holder.

    Controlled material removal
  • AbraPol method database

    Method database

    Ten Metalog Guide methods are included, covering the preparation of most materials.

  • AbraPol easy method creation

    Easy method creation

    The user can create 10 groups with up to 20 methods each. The software also contains information about all Struers consumables such as grinding and polishing surfaces, suspensions and lubricants, making it easy to develop new preparation methods and avoid mistakes such as combining wrong consumables.

  • AbraPol variable speed

    Variable speed for optimal preparation

    Both the preparation disc and the specimen mover operate at variable speeds. The preparation disc can run between 50 and 500 rpm, adjustable in steps of 10 rpm. The specimen mover can run between 50 and 300 rpm, also adjustable in steps of 10 rpm.

    Variable speed for optimal preparation
  • AbraPol maximum operator safety

    Maximum operator safety

    Because of the relatively high speeds that can be employed on AbraPol-20, the machine is equipped with a safety guard. The entire working area is encapsulated using a transparent cover, preventing access to any rotating parts during operation. An emergency stop stops all machine functions with immediate effect.

    Maximum operator safety
  • AbraPol AbraSystem

    AbraSystem

    In its basic form, AbraPol-20 comes with a standard tap water cooling system and a dosing unit with three pumps. A recirculation cooling unit is also available if it is necessary to reduce the risk
    of corrosion in connection with the preparation of ferrous materials or, if the preparation debris is to be contained. The AbraSystem also includes the plane grinding machine, AbraPlan-20. The ideal solution for high-capacity requirements is an AbraPlan for plane grinding, an AbraPol for fine grinding and a second AbraPol for polishing.
