Make the Most Out of Your Abrasive Saw

Saw in Action

Abrasive cutoff saws are important machines in most microstructural analysis laboratories, and keeping them running smoothly can make the difference between an efficient process and wasted time! Tips for best performance from your abrasive cutter: Coolant flow: abrasive sectioning should always wet, with an ample flow of coolant that includes both corrosion protection and lubrication. …

Material Thickness When Choosing a Rockwell Scale

Hardness Scales

Are you concerned about which Rockwell scale to use for thin materials? Of primary importance in Rockwell scale selection is material thickness. Since the 30 Rockwell scales are distinguished by total test force as well as the indenter type, a load or force that is excessive for a given material thickness will ultimately be influenced …
