How can our stones and disc support your materialographic process?
Balance high removal and low deformation
High material removal often comes at the cost of deformation, increasing the time or removal needed in the following step. Our grinding stones and diamond grinding disc are optimized to provide high, consistent removal with low deformation. This reduces the time spent on your fine grinding step and your overall preparation time – ideal for high-volume labs, or labs that need a very fast throughput.
Plane grind any type of material
To cater for a wide range of materials, we have developed a variety of different grinding stones. There are stones for softer and harder materials as well as for ductile/brittle materials. For extremely hard materials like sintered carbides or ceramics, we have a diamond grinding disc which reduces the plane grinding time significantly.
Fitting into your process or set-up
Our stones and disc require equipment just for high removal grinding, such as the AbraPlan or Hexamatic. As with all of our equipment and consumables, these have been specifically designed to work together to provide the best results. The high removal provides optimal planeness very quickly, including very uneven specimens where you might not have a materialographic cutting set-up.
