PELCO Precision Low Speed Saw, 100-240V 50/60Hz

The PELCO Precision Low Speed Saw is a compact, multipurpose, precision saw designed to cut a wide variety of materials with minimal subsurface damage. Its low speed makes it possible to cut fragile materials that would otherwise fracture as well as soft materials that would load the diamond wheel on a higher speed saw. A variety of sample holders and accessories are available, providing a means for mounting any shape of sample, while multi-axis goniometer adaptability simplifies cutting oriented crystals.Features:Belt drive system eliminates gear breakage, common with less reliable fibre gear driven designs.Coolant reservoir (water soluble and oil based coolants) is lowered and easily removed by opening an access door located on the front panel.Both coarse and fine sample position adjustments for rapid and accurate sample positioning.Automatic termination of the cutting process is controlled by an electromechanic...

The PELCO Precision Low Speed Saw is a compact, multipurpose, precision saw designed to cut a wide variety of materials with minimal subsurface damage. Its low speed makes it possible to cut fragile materials that would otherwise fracture as well as soft materials that would load the diamond wheel on a higher speed saw. A variety of sample holders and accessories are available, providing a means for mounting any shape of sample, while multi-axis goniometer adaptability simplifies cutting oriented crystals.

Features:

  • Belt drive system eliminates gear breakage, common with less reliable fibre gear driven designs.
  • Coolant reservoir (water soluble and oil based coolants) is lowered and easily removed by opening an access door located on the front panel.
  • Both coarse and fine sample position adjustments for rapid and accurate sample positioning.
  • Automatic termination of the cutting process is controlled by an electromechanical downstop.
  • Cutting arm pivots on precision bearings, ensures accurate and repeatable sample positioning.
  • High torque 1/15 HP DC motor, sufficient power for difficult materials.
  • Automatic overload protection shuts down the motor if the blade binds while cutting.
  • A wide variety of sample holders and accessories are available.

Hard Bio-Specimens:

Cutting of hard bio-specimens such as small bones, teeth, implants, embedded samples, and other materials. This can be of particular use to many areas of biological research as well as dental and veterinary applications. Also utilised in Fish & Wildlife Management applications, such as otolith preparation, to thinly section and expose the core and all increments for ageing.

Operation:

Sample is mounted to a sample holder and attached to the arm. An appropriate load is applied by adjusting the counterbalancing weight, and the automatic stop switch is set to define the end of the cut. The sample is positioned in any starting position relative to the diamond blade and then a micrometer is used for precise sample positioning. With the diamond blade rotating slowly and coolant in the reservoir, the arm is gently lowered until the sample touches the diamond blade. Cutting will continue until the automatic cutoff switch is triggered.

Cutting Blades:

Designed to cut with diamond, cBN and abrasive blades. Diamond blades are used for most applications while cBN blades are primarily used for cutting ferrous based materials. Abrasive blades (Al2O3, SiC) can be used for cutting both ferrous and nonferrous materials and have also been used for dry cutting of superconductor materials.
