Optical polishing applications rely on specific geometry. The OptiPrep™ features a fixed cam-lock interface reference that is parallel to the plane of the platen. Desired sample angles are obtained based on geometric orientation built into the fixture.
Z-positioning/indexing is displayed on the digital indicator with 1-micron resolution, and can be pre-set for unattended operation. Variable speed rotation/limit rotation and oscillation with variable sweep maximize use of the entire abrasive surface.
Adjustable load control expands its capability to handle a range of small (delicate) to large samples.
Applications where the OptiPrep™ is used often require custom fixtures. Please contact Allied for assistance with a current fixture or to design and manufacture a fixture for a complete solution.
