Gauge

Gauge for instantaneous µ-exact measurement of grinding thickness. It consists of waterproof, robust high-quality dial gauge for professionals made in the “Black Forest”. This gauge means an enormous saving of labor and so indispensable for making thin sections.

Grinding machine

Universal laboratory grinding machine for rubbing and thin sections.

Laborschleifmaschine - System Abele

Rubbing, pre-grinding, thin section grinding, polishing

For all these steps only one machine is needed.

Exchanging of discs within 5 seconds.

Diamond grinding disc

Diamantscheibe - System Abele

It is finely polished with gliding surface made of ceramics.

Available for granulation from „extra fine“ to „extra rough“.

Magnet disc with finger holes to make removing of discs easy

Magnetscheibe - System Abele

Magnet disc with a diameter of 25 cm for use of all polishing discs, grinding discs, tissue discs etc. with steel back.

Mounting Press

Klebepresse - System Abele

The specimen are securely fixed by spring force which is easy to dose. By using this mounting press, bonding with reproducible thickness is obtained.

Also usable for mounting of cover glasses without spring force.

The mounting press is also suitable (without feet) for big hotplates because of its flat bottom.

Mounting Press Vario

Klebepresse Vario - System Abele

The mounting press Vario comes with bottom panels made of Plexiglas and hard anodized aluminum.

It is the ideal device for bonding with light-curable adhesives as well as with traditional embedding media.

Without spring force also suitable for mounting cover glasses.

UVcase

For a quick and complete cure of UV-curable adhesives.

The perfect addition for the Mounting Press Vario

  • Mounting cover glasses in seconds.
  • Infusing sample material, such as hairs, sand and pollen in seconds.
  • Mounting cover glasses

6 high power LEDs let you cure adhesives and UV-curable mounting mediums quick and easy. Exposure time can be preset.

UV-curable adhesives and mounting mediums, refraction index up to 1.60, available by us.

Spike Pad

Druckigel - System Abele

It is suitable for the preparation of thin, filigree and flexible specimen. They are pressed flat onto the microscope slide by the spike pad. By this a uniform thin adhesive layer is guaranteed. This spike pad is as well suitable for a uniform flat pressing of cover glasses.
