Sample preparation starts with cutting and good cutting means a good start. Selecting the right cut-off wheel ensures freedom from burn and distortion and is the best way to save time and consumables. Correct cutting produce specimens which are in perfect condition for the next preparation steps.

The aim of mounting is to handle small or odd shaped specimens and to protect fragile materials, thin layers, or coating during preparation as well as to provide good edge retention. Mounting produces specimens with uniform size so that it is easier to handle in automatic holders for further preparation steps.

Grinding and Polishing

In Order to obtain a highly reflective surface that is free from scratches and deformation, the specimens must be carefully ground and polished before they can be examined under the microscope. Metkon offers high quality instruments and consumable for achieving this goal.
