Tegramin

The powerful preparation system for high-quality specimen preparation

Tegramin facts

  • Dual column construction
  • Precise force control
  • Automatic locking of specimen mover plates
  • Removal measurement
  • Easy cleaning
  • Emergency stop

The Tegramin preparation system offers innovative solutions to improve the preparation results and help deal with a variety of specimens and materials. Reproducibility is ensured by automated process control, yet it is remarkably easy to operate. All the features of the Tegramin preparation system have been developed in close cooperation with experienced metallographers to make specimen preparation easier and more reliable.

Sturdy and durable design

The specimen mover is supported by a sturdy construction on a massive, cast aluminium base. The up/down movement is based on two strong columns that make the entire system as solid and stable as possible. This has a very positive effect on specimen planeness and noise during preparation.

Intuitive user interface

The user interface consisting of a colour screen, simple buttons and a multifunction knob displays all of the parameters of the current preparation step in an easy-to-read and user-friendly manner.

Easy cleaning

A removable bowl liner makes for easy cleaning by collecting all debris that has not been washed away.

  • Removal measurement

    Removal measurement

    A built-in removal sensor allows for the measurement of material removal in the range from 50 - 5,000 μm. The user can specify the amount of material to be removed, guaranteeing the shortest possible grinding time while ensuring that sufficient material has been removed.

    Removal measurement
  • Tegramin automatic locking

    Automatic locking of specimen mover plates

    After the specimen mover plate has been moved into the correct position over the preparation surface, the coupling is locked inside the specimen mover head. This completely avoids any small movements of the specimen mover plate, resulting in a tremendous improvement in specimen planeness. The specimen mover plate is locked in place with a single screw on Tegramin-20.

  • Tegramin different disc sizes

    Three different disc sizes

    Tegramin is available for three different disc sizes:
    • Tegramin-30 for 300 mm discs
    • Tegramin-25 for 250 mm discs
    • Tegramin-20 for 200 mm discs.
