PetroThin - Thin Section Machine


The PetroThin Thin Sectioning System is a precise easy-to-use precision thin section cutting machine for re-sectioning and thinning a wide variety of samples, such as rocks and minerals, ceramics, concrete, bone, and teeth for performing materials characterization.

Single spindle design ensures parallelism of sample edges by eliminating the need to remove the glass slide from the machine between steps

Increase accuracy and parallelism of samples

  • To avoid the need to remove the glass slide between steps with a diamond cutting blade and a diamond grinding cup wheel.
  • Single spindle design ensures parallelism of sample edges by eliminating the need to remove the glass slide between steps

Precise cut location control

  • Two precision micrometers are used for controlling re-sectioning and thinning.
  • Precision of resections and grinds material within ±5µm
