Optimize process time with highly efficient setup and operation

A fast and efficient specimen analysis process starts with the sectioning. With Labotom, any operator can section workpieces quickly and efficiently, to help optimize your inspection process.

Setting up a cut is fast and simple. No programming is required and there are just three buttons: Start, Stop and Flush. To further increase efficiency, Labotom’s large cutting table has 10 mm T-slots for flexible clamping and the fixed cooling nozzle eliminates the need to place nozzles manually.

Experience high flexibility with one solution for different workpieces

Labotom may be the only cutting machine you ever need. The large cutting table and versatile cut-off wheel can handle a wide range of workpieces – of different shapes, sizes, complexities and materials. For very long workpieces, the machine has extension tunnel options.

Minimize downtime with integrated cleaning

Cleaning can be one of the most time-consuming parts of the cutting process. Not with Labotom. To minimize cleaning time, Labotom includes an integrated flushing gun and big drain. This means any debris is quickly and easily washed away.
