Excellent for large specimens

The AbraPol-30 grinding/polishing machine features a unique double dosing of diamond suspensions and lubricants for better distribution. The double dosing system makes the machine eminently suitable for preparing large specimens on up to 350 mm/14” dia. discs using a 200 mm/8” dia. specimen holder.

Easy to operate

The user interface features a clear color display with large icons enabling easy and correct settings. The multipurpose turn/push knob makes navigation fast.

Precise and powerful performance

AbraPol-30 features an exceptionally stable and robust design with an extremely solid frame for reproducible grinding/polishing and powerful motors. The design limits vibrations, while the high-quality stainless steel bowl design is strong and safe, and comes with a lifetime corrosion warranty.

  • AbraPol-30 Large outlet

    Large outlet

    The large 50 mm/2" dia. outlet and drain tube, with a smooth inner surface enables cleaning from the bowl with a brush/bottle-brush. For flexible placement and easier access to an external recirculation tank, there is a hole for the drain tube in both sides of the machine.

  • AbraPol-30 Removal rate sensor

    Removal rate sensor

    In many situations, grinding for a specified grinding time is not a good idea. In the case of small specimens, there is a risk of too much material being removed, while large specimens or hard materials may hardly be touched. The AbraPol-30 is equipped with a sensor to accurately measure the material removal.

  • AbraPol-30 Integrated recirculation unit

    Integrated recirculation unit

    A recirculation cooling unit can be connected for cost-efficient water utilization and to collect removed abrasives. The recirculation unit is integrated into the machine. The recirculation pump has three phases and is connected directly to the AbraPol-30, resulting in the emergency stop and also controls the recirculation unit.

  • AbraPol-30 Variable disc and specimen holder rotation

    Variable disc and specimen holder rotation speed

    Both disc and specimen holder rotation speed can be adjusted for either very careful preparation or faster preparation. The disc speed can be set from 40 – 600 rpm and the specimen holder speed from 50 - 300 rpm.

  • AbraPol-30 Strong safety cover

    Strong safety cover

    AbraPol-30 features a strong, transparent safety cover for maximum operator safety. The safety cover keeps fumes inside the machine and is noise reducing. In manual mode, the preparation disc can turn without the safety cover locked. Otherwise, the machine cannot be started before the cover is closed. The cover can only be opened again when the machine has stopped completely. AbraPol-30 features an emergency stop, which stops all machine functions when engaged.

  • AbraPol-30 External extraction of fumes

    External extraction of fumes

    The machine can be connected to an external exhaust system via the built-in exhaust tube for safe extraction of alcohol fumes.

  • AbraPol-30 User-friendly interface

    User-friendly interface

    AbraPol-30 is very easy to operate, making extensive training unnecessary. A large clear display with large icons offers the operator a perfect overview of process parameters. The multipurpose turn/push knob makes navigation easier than ever, and a countdown feature allows the operator to see the remaining preparation time or remaining material removal.
