Metallographic Preparation Laboratory

Metallographic Preparation Laboratory

The metallographic preparation laboratory of the institute is equipped with typical used machines needed for metallographic sample preparation. The laboratory contains a precision wet abrasive cut-off machine, a semi automated and an automated embedding machines. For micrograph preparation at least five different grinding and polishing devices can be used. Grinding operations of 1200, 600, 320, 180 mesh size and polishing steps with 9 µm, 6 µm, 3 µm, 1 µm and OPS can be performed. Cleaning and contrasting can be executed with every conventional chemicals of a metallographic laboratory.
