EcoMet 30 Semi-Automatic

Semi-Automatic Grinder-Polisher

The EcoMet 30 semi-automatic grinder polisher machine is compatible with 8-12in [203-305mm] platens and is ideal for medium volume processes. This robust unit is easy to use and produces high surface quality, making it ideal for labs where machines are assigned to dedicated steps in the preparation process. Quickly move samples from machine to machine as they go from rough grind to final polish without having to swap working surfaces. Available in either a single or double bowl configuration so users can have two steps ready for processing without changing cloths on the platen. Combine with premium CarbiMet grinding paper and MetaDi diamond suspension fluid for an unparalleled surface finish.
