Petrographic Sample Preparation

Our machine is the complete range of instruments for petrographic sample preparation, starting with a piece of rock and finishing at 20 microns. The existing product range offers the latest technology and functional design to provide high performance in preparation of mineralogical samples and thin section specimens.
For mineralogical specimens, the surface is prepared for examination with a reflected light microscope and the preparation procedure is basically similar to the preparation of metallographic specimens. Preparing thin sections, on the other hand, requires highly specialized equipment and skills because the specimen is extremely thin, generally around 20 microns for observations with transmitted light microscope.
Petrography is the science of investigating microstructure, composition and inter-component relationship of rocks, ceramics, minerals, man-made materials etc. The method of prepare petrographic samples for investigation is called "thin-sectioning". Preparation of thin-sections require very precise instruments and know-how.
