GenGrind FA Series - Fully Automatic Metallographic Polisher and Grinder incorporates our basic variable speed grinding wheels with a fully-automatic specimen moving head equipped with advanced pneumatic control. The FA - Fully Automatic Polisher and Grinder systems regulate the pressure to your specimens through the use of a pneumatic connection. This means that you may adjust the pressure being applied to your specimens from one to eight kilogram force. Our single wheel FA-IC - Fully Automatic Metallographic Polisher/Grinder units have the capabilities of individual specimen as well as central specimen pressure control. Our FA-I-D dual wheel system can only apply individual pressure for sample preparation.
The FA Series - Metallographic Polishing and Grinding systems are available with a specimen plate for 3 specimens or 5 specimens in a variety of common sizes to ensure the quickest sample preparation. The specimen moving head is able to tilt upwards to clear your grinding wheel for manual use. The fully automatic units can also move the automatic head to the side of the wheel for an easy release of your sample plate. A dual motor configuration provides a fixed selectable speed of either 80rpm or 150rpm in the specimen moving head and a variable speed on the grinding wheel. With the addition of a second platen, the motor count remains the same and the defined speed will run both platens simultaneously. Optional items include the addition of a micrometer (to our single platen FA-IC unit only) and a variety of dosing systems. The micrometer allows you to control the rate of material loss. The dosing system allows you to incorporate consumables such as diamond suspensions to your sample preparation procedures.
GenGrind FA I - Our fully-automatic grinder and polishers are available in 8" (200mm), 10" (250mm) and 12" (300mm) sizes to cover all sample sizes. For customers with a diverse range of applications, the FA Series - Metallurgical grinder and polishers meets all grinding and polishing requirements. The direction of the wheel can be changed from clockwise to counter clockwise and the speed is variable from 50-600rmp. The FA Series - Fully Automatic Polisher and Grinder is also equipped with a powerful brushless high quality motor as well as an anti-splash cover. The water flow pipe is easily adjustable for proper cooling and cleaning of your specimens.
