The Model 595 BiPod Polisher™ is a variation of the well known Tripod Polisher®.
The BiPod Polisher™ is designed with flats on all sides which make it more
suitable for viewing under a standard upright stereo microscope and also
simplifies adapting the polisher for semiautomatic SEM cross sectioning.
The BiPod Polisher™ is used in the same way as the Tripod Polisher® with
the exception of it having only 2 feet and those feet being controlled by
precision machined screws instead of micrometers. The BiPod Polisher™ can
also be mounted easily onto either the Model 910 or Model 920 Lapping and
Polishing machine with the appropriate yoke for semiautomatic polishing.
The BiPod Polisher™ uses the same sample mounts as the Tripod Polisher®
and the polishing procedure is essentially the same. The BiPod Polisher™
is capable of being used for both SEM cross sectioning and TEM Wedge polishing.
