MicroSaw, Model MS 3

A Circular Diamond Saw for Precision Cutting under Stereo Microscope

MicroSaw is a small, versatile diamond wheel saw, to be mounted under a standard laboratory microscope. The precision offered by such an optical alignment makes MicroSaw ideal for cutting and sectioning required during the TEM specimen preparation. The compact design and easy operation, MicroSaw allows the user cut almost any solid material with precisely and reproducibly prior to thinning for TEM. Thin ceramic, semiconductor material, hard metals can be further sectioned with 0.01mm accuracy!

Operation

The Model MS3 MicroSaw is driven by an electric motor through a helical transmission. The 12V DC is provided by the power supply subunit. The speed at which the wheel turns is continuously adjustable. Adjustment of the specimen position, arm contact point, arm tension and the down-stop control mechanism is possible. Two adjustment screws at the bottom of the instrument allow positioning of the stand, and leveling the MicroSaw underneath of the stereomicroscopy for precision sectioning.
