No Material Too Tough to Grind for this Ultimate Match

Lake Bluff, IL … Buehler will debut its Mosaic line of diamond grinding discs (DGD) along with new high performance AutoMet grinder/polisher for demanding laboratories at the TMS 2019 (The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society) in San Antonio, Texas March 11-13, 2019. The Mosaic DGDs offer superb material removal in the grinding process of sample preparation. The semi-automatic AutoMet Pro model has an intuitive touch screen and advanced programming features such as method storage and Z-axis material removal to ensure consistent results regardless of operator. Both are utilized in demanding laboratories working with heavy duty metals or durable materials.

The AutoMet Pro expedites the sample preparation process and improves the quality of the samples while saving time and money in the training of laboratory technicians. It supports complex lab applications in high throughput labs. Buehler developed the high strength abrasive surface of the DGDs to effectively grind steel, sintered carbides, alloyed metals, thermal spray coatings, and other hard materials. The new DGD Mosaic provides users with an enhanced material removal rate, consistency in results, labor savings and an extended lifetime that saves on repeat purchases.

The Mosaic DGDs are available with a magnetic backing and come in 8”, 10” or 12” discs in 120, 220, 320, 400 and 1000 grit sizes. For ultimate results, they are partnered with Buehler’s EcoMet or AutoMet family of grinders.

    The AutoMet Pro and Mosaic DGDs are a time saver for production quality control technicians in many industries including:
  • Automotive - Mosaic DGDs are optimal for grinding hard and heat treated steels and other alloyed metals used in the automotive industry.
  • Aerospace - They are ideal for super alloys and thermal spray coatings.
  • Tool making – In machine shops and they can be used to grind cemented carbides and hard metals.
