Buehler, Lake Bluff, Ill., an ITW company, introduces the AutoMet family of semi-automatic grinder-polishers that feature a new intuitive touch screen interface that is simple to learn and quick to operate. The AutoMet 250, AutoMet 250 Pro, and the AutoMet 300 Pro grinder-polishers are ideal for material testing or for processing a high volume of samples. The AutoMet Pro models also include advanced programming features such as method storage and z-axis material removal to ensure consistent results regardless of operator.


Buehler created the AutoMet Pro grinder polishers to expedite the sample preparation process and improve the quality of the samples, while saving time and money in the training of laboratory technicians. Customers have already noted the difference it makes in their daily production. It has eliminated constantly setting the machine and the possibility of human error. The AutoMet supports complex lab applications and is also ideal for high throughput labs especially in the automobile, aerospace, medical device, electronics, heat treating, metals, and other manufacturing industries.”


Buehler’s non-programmable AutoMet 250 grinder-polisher offers push-button controls and digital readouts. All AutoMet models have been redesigned for a new look and feel, while retaining the reliability that comes with the Buehler name. Quick cleaning features such as an adjustable water spout, 360-degree bowl rinse, and bowl liners save time and effort during daily cleaning.


Reproducibility and automation can be further improved by integrating the Burst Dispensing System, which also optimizes abrasive usage to save on consumables. Another new highlight of the AutoMet grinder-polishers is “Rinse and Spin,” which cleans polishing surfaces and the platen at the press of a button. Buehler also offers a complete line of compatible accessories (splash guard, recirculation tank, disposable bowl liner and more) and consumables (silicon carbide grinding discs, diamond grinding discs, polishing cloths and diamond suspensions and pastes) that are available in the online shop.
