Buehler Introduces New Automated Castable Mount System – SimpliVacTM at TMS 2020

Buehler Introduces New Automated Castable Mount System – SimpliVacTM at TMS 2020 Image Ideal for Castable Mounting in Epoxy of Delicate, Porous or Heat-Sensitive Samples

Lake Bluff, IL Buehler is debuting the SimpliVac™ at TMS 2020 Booth #428 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. Buehler's new programmable SimpliVac offers excellent pore impregnation in a compact format.

Ideal for delicate and precise samples

Quality control lab technicians working on delicate and precise samples in electronics, thermal spray coatings, additive manufacturing and other specialty aerospace surface treatments will appreciate the ability to optimize sample impregnation in a faster, more automated way.

Runs Fully Automated Cycles and Maintains Edge Retention

According to Alicia Burns, Buehler Product Manager, “Using a compressed air source, this system quickly and efficiently pulls a vacuum to evacuate trapped air from any porous sample, resulting in optimized edge retention and additional support for processing delicate samples. The digital SimpliVac is easy to operate with an intuitive interface that is easy to set for multiple cycles. This greatly increases effectiveness, and as the only machine on the market able to run multiple cycles without user inference between cycles there is both efficiency and quality improvement. Buehler’s innovations continue to lead industry expectations and this one will not disappoint.”

Easy to Set and Forget; Handles Large Samples Too

The SimpliVac Vacuum optimizes sample impregnation in a faster more automated way and also allows lab technicians to set multiple cycles to complete the mounting process faster. SimpliVac can also accommodate larger samples due to its oversized chamber and sample tray insert, which creates a large flat surface for larger mounts.
