tdsUltraSlice Precision Slicing Machinearrow11UltraSlice Precision Slicing Machine

Advanced slicing for most component sizes & shapes

Ultimate Versatility – the ULTRASLICE platform provides:

  • Work-holding and machine variables to enable most cutting jobs
  • Long-cuts and dicing modes also possible
  • Motorized table provides unattended operation
  • Provides 'end of the line' capability for manufacturers/labs already with larger production units
  • Intuitive and easy to use

Developed to facilitate precision sectioning applications in Industry and Research, ULTRASLICE Precision Saw provides the user with a unique combination of features:

UltraSlice Precision Slicing MachineVersatile Sample Holding

The system may be readily converted to handle sample cutting requirements of most shapes, sizes, and applications – e.g. transverse and longitudinal slicing, right through to dicing.

Cutting Accuracy

The use of precision lead screws on all sample feed mechanisms mean that cuts can be positioned accurately. The inbuilt 'Z-spindle' provides the ability to set the blade height 'on the fly'.

Reproducible ResultsReproducible Results

All-metal construction and an accurately calibrated and damped spindle movement assures low transmission of vibration to the workpiece. This gives reproducibility of performance for cutting materials of widely varying mechanical properties; from the hardest steels and non-metallics down to delicate crystal materials.

Versatile ControlsVersatile Controls

ULTRASLICE has the power and range of blade speeds to achieve higher cutting rates when necessary.

The system features an integral coolant recirculation system which extends blade life and clears cutting debris to improve cutting rate and surface quality.

ULTRASLICE can handle sample cutting requirements of all shapes, sizes and applications. Samples may be presented to the blade with table attachments (X, Y, W, and Z direction accessories).

The system accepts a wide range of O.D. diamond and abrasive blades for standard cutting, and is readily adaptable to accept.

arrow11UltraSlice Compact

Versatile Precision Saw for small workspaces & small budgets

For the user who wants all the functionality and unique control of cutting parameters offered by a high end saw, while working on a tight budget or with limited lab space, ULTRASLICE Compact provides the answer.

The system features an integral coolant recirculation system which extends blade life and clears cutting debris to improve cutting rate and surface quality.

Work is fed into the blade by several different methods, by use of table attachments.

A wide range of workholders can be held by the saw. This method allows the workpiece to be mounted rapidly and conveniently without the need for mounting waxes or cements.

A fully splashguard enclosure is provided which may be opened to allow front panel access or be completely swung away from the cutting area.

For Industrial and research operations, ULTRASLICE Compact saw offers an unparalleled combination of cut quality, accuracy, versatility, and affordability.

Product Highlights

Versatility

The system may be readily converted to handle sample cutting requirements of most shapes, sizes and applications.

Cutting Accuracy

The use of precision lead screws on all sample feeds means cuts may be positioned accurately.

Long Cuts and Dicing

The large work-table andl layout of the machine allows for long cuts to be achieved – perfect for failure analysis, and QA applications such as longitudinal sectioning of components. Sectioned workpieces may be an end in themselves, or the starting point for lapping and polishing.

Most Blade Types

The system accepts a wide range of O.D. diamond and abrasive blades for standard cutting, and is readily adaptable to accept special 'dicing' blades for the smallest kerf.

UltraSlice Precision Macrotomearrow11UltraSlice Precision Macrotome

Precise sectioning of hard tissue & other materials

ULTRASLICE Macrotome precision diamond saw has a quiet, direct drive design for smooth, chatter free slicing of important and fragile industrial, biological and related specimens.

The system suits Fish & Game applications, such as Otolith and Statolith samples. Specimens can be oriented to ensure a flat surface is parallel to the desired section plane such as sagittal, frontal or transverse.

UltraSlice precision macrotomeMACROTOME can also be used in many other industrial applications where the best price/perfomance ratio is required.

The wheel (spindle) rotation is variable speed, to allow for optimized cut quality. An easy access coolant reservoir, allows for quick efficient coolant changes.
