Any time a specimen needs to be separated from its parent piece for testing purposes, it is very important that the specimen has minimal wear, no thermal damage or burns, and is as smooth as possible. Otherwise inspection, especially at the microscopic level, will not be representative of the parent piece. This is accomplished by using abrasive cut-off wheels in combination with a lubricating cooling fluid to remove debris and avoid damaging friction heat.
METSUCO has a full lineup of sectioning equipment, aluminum oxide cut-off wheels, and silicon carbide cut-off wheels in various sizes and for use with various hardnesses. We also sell diamond cut-off or sectioning blades and cubic boron nitride (CBN) blades for use on very hard metals, carbides, and ceramics. More recently we started selling band saw blades for cutting larger pieces of metal that can then be cut further by cut-off wheels for sample preparation or just for general production purposes. Our band saw blades come in bi-metal or carbide tipped if needed and in varying teeth per inch (TPI) or lengths depending on need.
METSUCO has been in business for over 30 years, sourcing quality supplies at economic prices. We offer 24/7 ordering, quick shipping, and a dedicated support staff. Don’t see the right product? Contact us, we can help with your quality testing needs!
