Hot Mounting Presses

OPAL 480
Hot Mounting Presses

The OPAL 480 is a fully hydraulic, water cooled hot mounting press for mounting samples before polishing. The process sequence is executed automatically. The fully automatic sliding closure allows quick and easy opening/closing of the mould assembly. Mould assemblies can be exchanged quickly and without tools.

Also rectangular moulds can be produced. With its solid construction and QATM hydraulic system, the operating noise of the machine is minimized. Our comprehensive selection of mould assemblies from Ø 50-70 mm, rectangular moulds of 30×60/40×60 mm and different pressure methods enable optimum mounting of your sample.

The Opal 460 and 480 are available not only as single units but also as a bench standing unit. By integrating the mounting presses into our System, we produce a comfortable working height. Optionally, the SYSTEM-MOUNTING PRESS can be equipped with a closed cooling water system, so it becomes independent from any mains water supply. In addition, the water consumption is reduced to a single filling (6 litres). The system-mounting presses are available as twin- or triple powder-coated aluminum units and fit perfectly into our QATM System Lab.
