Back MODEL 810 - Abrasive Slurry Saw
810 Abrasive Slurry Saw

The Wire Saw offers the most gentle mechanical method for cutting virtually any material using either a diamond impregnated wire blade or a plain wire blade with an abrasive slurry. In addition to traditional mechanical cutting, the saw can also be used as a string saw to cut water soluble crystals. It is most useful for cutting fragile crystals, substrates with delicate layers or any material that would be damaged when using a diamond wheel saw. Very brittle materials will cut the fastest, but even soft materials can be cut since there is not the problem of loading the blade that is inherent with diamond or abrasive wheels. The Wire Saw has sample holders available to hold virtually any shape sample including a goniometer to simplify the cutting of oriented crystals.

65001 Single Axis Goniometer Single-Axis Goniometer -The Model 65001 has a graduated scale with a 0.2° vernier and can be rotated 360°. This rotational capability makes it ideal for precisely slicing single crystals. The sample is mounted to a block using a low melting point wax and the block is subsequently clamped into the Model 65001. Wax mounting of the sample ensures that the cut piece will remain attached to the holder and will not be damaged by falling after being cut. Model
