Innovations in Sectioning, Grinding/Polishing to Hardness Testing at MS&T 2018 October 16-18 Booth #501
Lake Bluff, IL – Buehler, an ITW Company and a premier manufacturer of scientific equipment and supplies for use in materials analysis is demonstrating its high efficiency equipment at booth #501 during the MS&T Conference (Material Science and Technology), a joint conference of the ACerS, AIST, ASM International, and TMS organizations in Columbus, Ohio. The company will be revealing the AutoMet, its newest grinder/polisher along with the IsoMet™ High Speed Pro precision cutter, and the Wilson® VH3100 Vickers hardness tester. Not to miss are Buehler’s leading edge consumables from blades to the hardness test reference blocks calibrated by the Wilson Hardness Calibration Laboratory in Binghamton, New York.

IsoMet High Speed – Precision Put to a Test with Powerful Motor and Laser Cut System
Buehler’s IsoMet™ High Speed Pro system is a benchtop precision cutter featuring highly intuitive operation for efficient and accurate sectioning. Its advanced design and innovative sectioning vises simplify and accelerate sample setup. Precision laser, tool-less clamping mechanism and disc movement in three axes enable fast and accurate sample alignment. Sectioning with precision and abrasive sectioning cutters can now be performed even faster, without any loss in sectioning quality.

VH 3100/3300 Wilson Vickers/Knoop Hardness Tester with DiaMet Software – Best in Class
Wilson VH3100/3300 offers a solution tailored to measurements with very high and/or very low test loads. It is a leading hardness tester due to its precision, repetition accuracy and user friendliness. It is ideal for more advanced heat treatment processes like the aerospace, energy, construction and transportation industries that require hardness testing systems to be durable while maintaining precise control during critical test data generation.

Wilson Hardness Test Blocks
Buehler manufactures a comprehensive variety of scales and hardness test blocks that are available to meet the wide ranges and hardness scales associated with Rockwell®, Brinell, Knoop and Vickers testing. All Wilson hardness reference test blocks are calibrated in the Wilson Hardness Calibration Laboratory in Binghamton, NY. The Wilson lab is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by A2LA and the testers used in the calibration process undergo a stringent monitoring process using NIST traceable devices.

Consumables Designed for High Performance
Buehler will also showcase their efficient and high performance consumables for grinding, polishing, sectioning and mounting of samples. Buehler’s product portfolio covers a variety of abrasive blades, epoxy and acrylic mounting compounds and accessories. Many consumables are available on the quick ship program by ordering sales representative for a quick quote.
