Spectrographic Ltd introduce a new model of metallurgical abrasive sectioning machine for metal cutting for metallurgical preparation.  PreciCut 5000 is designed for the precision cutting of small to medium sized samples or components using manual and automatic cutting modes. In automatic mode the cutting speed can be selected and start stop positions set to allow exact length cutting to be completed and then the machine resets to the start position, for the next sample. The twin cam lock vices allows for the easy fixture of samples and vernier feed gives the opportunity to take multiple slices of your sample. An additional advantage of the positional adjustment vices is that small samples can be accommodated by setting the distance between the vices using the scaled adjustment wheel..

The machine is operated using a safety first low voltage controller, this allows speed of cut to be set and also speed of reverse feed for resetting the machine after the cut is complete. The operator can view the cutting operation through the large window assisted by user lamp. The hood is interlocked and will stop operation when hood is lifted. A magnetic cleaning gun is available maintain the cleanliness of the machine, the coolant drain is located at the front of the machine with filter to collect cutting debris for improved cleaning function.

The PreciCut 5000 abrasive cutting machine is bench mounted offering easy installation, powered by single  with low voltage control circuit.  The overall package is very well designed with a compact footprint and floor standing cabinet to house tools, cutting wheels and the coolant re-circulation tank.
