MICRACUT precision cutters are used for precise and deformation-free cutting of “Metals, Ceramics, Electronic Components, Crystals, Composites, Biomaterials, Sintered Carbides, Minerals, etc.” MICRACUT has its place in virtually any metallurgical, geological, electronics, research, biomedical or industrial laboratory.The applications are endless.
MICRACUT Series are capable of cutting most materials such as, brittle or ductile metals, hard or soft metals, composites, ceramics, rocks, biomaterials, laminates, etc. They are designed for cutting all types of materials with minimal structural deformation.
The structural integrity of the sample is maintained through MICRACUT’s design and operation. Additionally, low kerf-loss and sample holding versatility makes the MICRACUT an essential part of the modern day laboratory. The cut surface is ready for microscopic examination with minimal polishing.
MICRACUT 152 accomodates diamond and abrasive wheels up to 150 mm (6”) diameter and the speed range is between 0 and 1000 rpm. The gravity feed loading design minimizes sample deformation.The sliding weight arm with counterweight allows precise force application. The digital micrometer enables the operator to set the cutting width with a resolution of 1 micron. The digital micrometer is interchangable and the customer can mount other types of micrometers if and whenever required. The coolant tray is removable from the front of the instrument for easy cleaning.
MICRACUT 152’s cutting chamber is fully enclosed by a transparent hood. Blade dresser is optionally available. At the end of the cut, an audible signal notifies the operator.
Optional Cutting Table Attachment is available for manual cutting of extra flat large specimens and PCB’s.
MICRACUT 202 is built on precisely manufactured heavy duty aluminium frame providing stable and vibration resistant base for precision components and linear bearings. The cutting compartment is fully enclosed. The front sliding door and side cover can be completely opened for easy access and handling to all sides. Powerful cutting motor (1.1 kW) has variable cut-off wheel speeds from 300 up to 4000 rpm allowing both high speed and low speed cutting. Wide range of clamping tools can be used on the T-slotted moving table. The optional X - axis table with motorized drive mechanism positions the specimen with high positioning accuracy. Optional Vacuum sample holder provides precision grinding on MICRACUT 202 with pre-defined amount of material removal can be carried out by using diamond cup wheel. Optional stand can accommodate all MICRACUT specimen vises with dovetail plates. The height of the cut-off wheel (Z-axis) can be adjusted automatically. Diamond, CBN and abrasive cut-off wheels up to 200 mm diameter can be used. By height adjustment (Z-axis), the wheel wear is easily compensated. Different flange sets are available which can be selected according to the requirement of maximum cutting capacity or max. wheel support. Various clamping tools and accessories are available for different specimen geometry and applications.
MICRACUT 202 precision cutters has advanced techniques and software with programmable HMI touch screen controls increasing the productivity, sample consistency and minimize operator intervention. Control of X/Y/Z Axis can also be performed with the ergonomic proportional Joystick that offers smooth and precise positioning.
The preselection of the cutting force level as well as the setting of cutting feed rate ((0,005-3mm/sec) is possible from the touch screen LCD. The feed rate is automatically adjusted, if needed reduced, resulting in perfect cuts and eliminating sample and machine damage.
The optional automatic x-table allows programmable plane parallel sectioning. Slices of equal thickness with number of slices as well as programming slices of different thickness is possible.

Programmable Return Positions
MICRACUT 202 has 3 different stop modes: Stay at the end of cutting: Stops when the specimen has been cut through. Back to starting point: Stops when it has returned to its starting point. Back to reference point: Stops when the ultimate reset point in all axes has been reached.
A library of 99 different cutting programs with related specimen name or number can be saved with all cutting parameters which can be recalled at anytime. Data with cutting consumables is also listed for easy selection.
