Qualitest’s Advanced Metallography Equipment

Qualitest is a leading supplier of testing equipment around the world. One of the most desired ranges of equipment we offer is Metallography Equipment. Widely used in the metal testing industry and manufacturing processes, our instruments range from manual machines to sophisticated microprocessor controlled preparation systems. This comprehensive range includes abrasive and precision cutters, mounting presses, grinding and polishing systems, petrography equipment, spectroscopy sample preparation systems, consumables as well as metallurgical microscopes.

Our Abrasive Cutting Machines are generally used for metal specimen sample preparation. It 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 produces specimens which are in perfect condition for the next preparation steps.

The Precision Cutting Machine is used for precise and deformation-free cutting of Metals, Ceramics, Electronic Components, Crystals, Composites, Biomaterials, Sintered Carbides, Minerals, etc.

After cutting the specimen, the next step is mounting. 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.

Basically, two methods are available: Hot Mounting & Cold Mounting

In hot mounting, the specimen is mounted under heat and pressure with a hot mounting press. Cold mounting is preferred for samples which are sensitive to damage from heat and pressure (like coatings, PCB, etc.) Cold mounting resins are easy to use and require mixing which is then poured into a mould and allowed to set.

In order to obtain a highly reflective surface that is free from scratches and deformation, the specimens must be carefully grinded and polished before they can be examined under the microscope. Qualitest offers high quality instruments and consumables for achieving this goal as well.
