Product Summary

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.
