Model 160 – Specimen Grinder


The Fischione Model 160 Specimen Grinder enables precise planar grinding for specimens up to 18mm in diameter.

For transmission electron microscopy (TEM), the quality of the initial disk determines the quality of the final specimen. The Model 160 Specimen Grinder is an accurate and dependable tool for mechanically pre-thinning specimens. It produces specimens of uniform thickness and parallel sides within minutes.

A graduated scale allows the specimen thickness to be controlled easily and precisely during the grinding process. If further thinning via dimpling is required, the platen containing the specimen is simply ejected from the specimen grinder and installed directly into the Model 200 Dimpling Grinder.
