AbrasiMatic 300 Abrasive Cutter

AbrasiMatic 300 Abrasive Cutter

Buehler's AbrasiMatic 300 abrasive cutter now features the optional X-Bed for increased convenience when sectioning in the x-axis direction. The accompanying digital display tracks x-axis travel, improving precision, consistency and repeatability in serial (parallel) sectioning applications. The AbrasiMatic 300 is a bench-top cutter featuring a 12-inch abrasive cut-off wheel that can section up to a 4.375 inch (110 mm) diameter sample. A 5 Hp (3.7 kW) motor powers through large and hardened materials, including steel, highly alloyed metals, coated metals, ceramics, concrete and minerals. The new X-Bed adjusts using a handle wheel on the front of the machine; operators can quickly position/reposition samples without unclamping them from the table or vice. After making the first cut, operators can then set the digital display to zero. Any subsequent x-axis table movement is then displayed 0.1-inch increments. The AbrasiMatic 300 offers four sectioning options: X-axis serial sectioning; manual "chop" style cutting in the z-axis using the manual cutting lever; manual longitudinal y-axis cutting using the y-axis handle wheel and automated longitudinal y-axis cutting using the y-axis motor feed and touch-screen controls. Buehler's Smartcut system automatically reduces the feed rate to produce burn-free cuts. A pulse cutting mode reduces deformation on difficult-to-cut materials.
