Brillant 240
Semi-Automatic Cut off Saw

The Brillant 240 is a metallographic wet abrasive cut off saw capable of semi-automatic or classic manual chop saw cutting.

A 10" (254 mm) cut off wheel allows samples up to 3.75" (95 mm) to be sectioned. A unique wheel guard rotates as the wheel is lowered to maximize cutting capacity and usage of the cut off wheel.

Automatic cross feed can be added for precise serial parallel sections.

Combine with the Easy Clamping System to maximize your efficiency.

Program. Repeat. Automate.

Programming the cut off saw is easy and intuitive using the large 7" color touch screen control panel. Repeatable results are achieved through programs that are saved and can be password protected.

The optional table cross feed motion (Z axis) is controlled by the color touch screen.

Routine maintenance tasks can be logged in the software such as changing out the coolant, lubricating the table or other scheduled maintenance tasks.


All metallographic wet abrasive cut off saws manufactured by ATM are designed to give you the ultimate in precision.

On the Brillant 240, you can slow the table feed rate down to 0.1 mm/sec and the automatic crossfeed table travel offers precision to 0.1 mm.

The manual chop saw lever utilizes a precise set of gears that results in an extremely smooth manual cutting process.

The manual chop saw lever can be easily locked into position with one hand by using the thumb button to electromechanically engage the brake.

The optional laser alignment tool aids in the precision of the section.

Operators of all strengths can replace the cut off wheel with the Easy Nut system.

Bright LED lights illuminate the cutting chamber.

Automatic Cutting Mode

Easily perform automatic X-cuts by lowering the wheel to the desired position and locking it into place. Then the table automatically drives the part through the cut off wheel.

Use pulse cutting to gently section your samples by letting the table pull the part away from the wheel and allowing the coolant to flush debris away and keep your part cool.

With the spacious cutting chamber and 8.8" (225 mm) of table travel you can perform longitudinal cuts.

Manual Cutting Mode

Simply use the manual chop saw lever to quickly perform a smooth Y-cut.

Enhance your efficiency by using the optional cross feed table to perform parallel cross sections.

Our extensive catalog of innovative clamping devices can also decrease your time spent repositioning your samples between sections.

Ports on both sides of the saw allow for sectioning of extremely long parts
