With a width of 280 mm and depth of 400 mm, Minitom is designed for tabletop use in the laboratory.


Minitom can be used to section all types of mineralogical and ceramic specimens. Cut-off wheels are available with different grain size and concentration to ensure the right choice of cut-off wheel for any type of material.

Easy to use

A few minutes are required to fixate the specimen and set specimen size, cutting speed, and cutting pressure. The motor is designed to ensure that the selected speed remains constant at any load.


  • Minitom movable arm

    Movable arm

    This arm acts as a steelyard with two weights, one of which balances the specimen holder with specimen, the other being used to set the exact cutting pressure.

  • Minitom specimen protection

    Specimen protection

    On completion, the cut-off wheel stops, and the specimen falls into a basket in the coolant tank, thus protecting the specimen from drying and making retrieval easy.

  • Minitom precision specimen size setting

    Precision specimen size setting

    The required specimen size can be set with an accuracy of +/- 0.01 mm using a micrometer screw.

  • Minitom overload alert

    Overload alert

    An overload indicator provides a visual warning either to stop the cutting procedure or to reduce cutting pressure. If the alert is not heeded, a thermal overload protection function kicks in.

  • Minitom cutting stop setting

    Cutting stop setting

    Minitom can be adjusted to stop cutting at any stage of the operation, e.g. when the material has just been sliced through.

  • Minitom easy specimen retrieval

    Easy specimen retrieval

    The coolant tank is very easy to remove, making retrieval of the finished specimens and cleaning of the coolant tank simple and straightforward.
