Rotary Disc Cutterarrow12Rotary Disc Cutter – Model 360

Model 360 Rotary Disc Cutter is a precision instrument, which is designed to precisely align and cut discs or drill holes from a wide range of materials using either a tube shaped brass tool with an abrasive slurry or a diamond tipped tool. The Model 360’s rotating tool is continually lowered into the specimen using an easily adjustable counterbalancing weight. The most common application for the instrument is to cut 2.3mm and 3.0mm discs for TEM, although discs as small as 1.25mm and as large as 50mm have been cut.

The model 360 includes everything necessary to operate the unit.

The Model 380 UltraSonic Cutter

The SoniCut™ 380 UltraSonic Cutter is a specialized cutting instrument which utilizes abrasive powders and high speed, vibratory motion to cut discs, holes, cylinders, squares and other shapes from hard, brittle materials. The high speed motion is developed using an ultrasonic transducer oscillating at 26kH. Boron carbide slurry is applied to the sample and the tool is lowered onto the specimen. The particles under the vibrating tool impact the sample and erode the material in the shape of the tool.

Transducer

Through careful design techniques, the entire transducer has some unique properties which enable the electronic circuitry to recognize the frequency at which mechanical resonance occurs. In the SoniCut™ 380 transducer, the electric voltage and electric current are "in phase" at only a single frequency - the mechanical resonant frequency. In operation, the frequency starts out at a low frequency. The SoniLoc™ circuitry scans the spectrum from the low frequency to higher frequencies until it finds the one frequency which yields" in phase" signals. By design, that frequency is the mechanical resonant frequency and the transducer operates at maximum mechanical amplitude. By using a carefully designed transducer and the SoniLoc™ circuitry, a transducer of extremely high efficiency has been produced.

Model 36001 Alignment Microscope

If very precise alignment is required, it is recommended to use the Model 36001 Alignment Microscope. The Alignment Microscope is initially aligned with the SoniCut™ 380 sample stage. The magnet plate, with the specimen mount attached, is then placed on the base plate of the Alignment Microscope. The area of interest is aligned with the cross-hairs in the microscope by sliding the specimen mount on the magnet plate. After alignment, the magnet plate is transferred to the sample stage on the SoniCut™ 380. The three locating pins on the Alignment Microscope correspond to the three locating pins on the sample stage to ensure precise positioning during the transfer.

Special Features

  • Titanium horn and SoniLoc™ circuitry maximize performance and ensure long term reliability.
  • Automatic termination simplifies operation and minimizes operator supervision.
  • Separate power and transducer controls allow specimen illumination lamp to be used without activating the transducer.
  • A dial indicator with 10 micron graduations continually displays depth of cut.
