Mount Diameter


X-Press Modular Mounting Press ∅ 25 - 50mm

The Opal X-Press is a state of the art modular hot mounting press for metallographic sample preparation. Up to 4 individually controlled mounting cylinders are controlled by 1 machine allowing multiple users to create different sized mounts at once (sizes: 25.2 - 50 mm).

A unique sliding top closure makes it incredibly easy to load/unload your samples. Advanced pre-heat functions keep the press ready to go and optimized heating elements reduce cycle times. The optional Dust Guard vacuum system benefits lab air quality when loading the powder into the machine.

OP410 Mounting Press ∅ 25 - 40mm

The Opal 410 Automatic Metallographic Mounting Press is simple and efficient. With ATM's thirty years of experience building high pressure hydraulic systems, the Opal 410 utilizes a sound design with reliable electro hydraulic operation and automatic water cooling with a water saving function.

The simple interface allows for easy control including five different pressure modes. The solid stainless steel bayonet closure will not bind or cross thread even during high volume repetitive mounting cycles. Each cylinder size, up to 40 mm, can be easily interchanged and an intermediate ram allows for dual mounting.

OP460 Mounting Press ∅ 25 - 50mm

The Opal 460 Automatic Hot Metallographic Mounting Press combines a uniquely designed closure system with the rugged dependability that ATM has mastered over 30 years of building high pressure hydraulic systems.

The innovative EasyGlide closure system eliminates typical problems associated with threaded and bayonet closures. The mount closure sled slides over the hot mounting zone and automatically locks when the machine starts the mounting cycle. An intermediate ram can be used to make double mounts. The Opal 460 is built for busy metallographic labs requiring solid and dependable mounting with programmability.

OP480 Mounting Press ∅ 50 - 70mm

The Opal 480 is a sturdy and powerful metallographic mounting press with easily interchangeable cylinder sets and full process programmability. Only the Opal 480 has the ability to make mounts up to 70 mm in diameter or rectangular mounts. A robust 4 HP motor provides the necessary power to make large mounts.

Intermediate ram allows for dual mounting. When combined with Mager's complete line of mounting resins, the Opal 480 can produce the largest mounts available with excellent results.

OP-SL SystemLab: Opal Mounting Press

With ATM's SystemLab, Opal 460 and 480 mounting presses can be integrated into the same, attractive furniture modules to match the rest of your SystemLab components. An optional, easily accessible, closed loop cooling system eliminates scale build up and provides water savings.

SystemLab's modular concept allows you to design your work stations in practically any configuration. With both double and triple units, Opal 460 and 480 mounting presses can be installed side by side while offering convenient storage of mounting supplies.
