Sample preparation is the most important part to be able to save time, money and achieve high-quality results. If you want to observe material properties like grain size, non-metallic inclusions, microstructures, morphology and colours of your material. It is important to get the materialographic and metallographic training, use the correct equipment and follow the optimised preparation methods for your workpiece.

At Labquip, we supply turn-key solutions from Metkon (cutting, grinding, mounting, and polishing equipment) paired with Akasel preparation materials (cut-off wheels, mounting resins, grinding discs, polishing cloths, diamond suspensions etc.). We offer on-site and remote technical consultative demonstrations where we can look at your preparation method and workpieces to optimise your materialographic preparation.

It is possible to get a scratch-free sample, get in touch to organise training and get complimentary Akasel Method Cards (AKA-Briefs).

Additionally, Labquip supplies Quorum sputter coating metals, carbon and metal evaporations coaters to be used with Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopes (FE-SEMs) and Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEMs). You can be assured, whatever your sample – the market leading Quorum has it covered.
