Low Speed Bone Saw

This is a precision water-cooled rotary saw intended primarily for fine sectioning of SEM samples. It utilizes a replaceable (and fragile) diamond-impregnated blade (0.3 mm thick) to cut plastic and bone as well as smaller metallurgical and petrographic samples. A variety of sample chucks can hold regularly and irregularly shaped specimens of up to about 26 mm in cross-sectional diameter. A manual micrometer permits positioning of cuts with 5-micron accuracy.

For additional information about this piece of equipment, see the Calendars, Contacts, and Fees pages.
