MAPS-2 is the ultimate solution for automatic preparation of materialographic specimens. A modular system which is customized exactly to the user’s specific requirements. MAPS-2 takes care of the entire preparation process ¬– from plane grinding to final polishing – including cleaning and drying. Automation means excellent specimen quality and cost savings due to the precise control of all preparation parameters and consumption of abrasives and lubricants. Reproducibility is second to none.
MAPS-2 consists of modules, each with two work stations, one cleaning station, and a specimen holder arm. Accessories such as dosing units, an additional recirculation cooling unit, level indicators for consumables, etc. differ according to the configuration of each MAPS-2 system. Conveyors transport the specimen holders from unit to unit. Suspensions and lubricants are stored in easily accessible modules.
A steady flow of specimen holders can pass through MAPS-2. While the second module takes care of polishing, the first module is plane grinding the next batch of specimens. A special line function makes it possible to prepare different materials using different preparation methods. The line function ensures an extremely fast throughput and eliminates all bottleneck problems, even at high volume preparation.
Savings in Manpower and Consumables
Fully automated specimen preparation means a steady flow of specimen holders can pass continuously through MAPS-2. A special line function ensures an extremely fast throughput and eliminates all bottleneck problems. The automated process, independent of the operator, means efficient and correct use of consumables with no waste.
Established methods can be recalled immediately from the method database by the operator using the methods window. This ensures reproducibility, regardless of operator changes. No operator intervention is required when the next specimen holder requires the same method as the previous one.
