Labopol-30 / Laboforce-Mi

Grinding, Lapping & Polishing Machine for Mineralogical Application

LaboPol-30 is a strong grinding and polishing machine for 300 mm diameter discs. With variable speed from 50-500 rpm, it is possible to carry out grinding, lapping and polishing processes, including final polishing with oxide polishing suspensions. LaboForce-Mi is a semi-automatic specimen mover for thin sections and mineralogical specimens. The force is applied through springs which can be individually adjusted up to maximum load of 20 N. Exchangeable specimen mover plates for 4 or 8 specimens are available. LaboDoser is a dosing unit for LaboPol with LaboForce.
