Hassle-free Polishing Bowl

The Saphir Vibro brings a fresh take on the polishing bowl making it much more user friendly

  • The bowl is magnetically affixed to the vibratory polisher; there are no screws and no tools are needed to exchange the bowl
  • A simple push of a button detaches the bowl and the operator only has to lift to remove; operators can quickly exchange different bowls and use included lids to prevent contamination when not in use
  • The inner bowl has a magnetic base so operators can use magnetic disc polishing cloths; there is no need to apply PSA cloths directly to bowl
  • A special inner ring easily snaps into place; this secures the polishing cloth and keeps the samples rotating on the cloth

Surface Guard Feature

Sometimes you aren't available to collect your samples at the end of the vibratory polisher procedure and that's when you need the Surface Guard feature

  • When activated, Surface Guard will continue to periodically vibrate after the program is completed to ensure that the samples do not stay in one place
  • This minimizes corrosion and/or crystallization of the sample surface if the operator is not present at the end of the procedure
  • Blue flashing light on control panel indicates that Surface Guard is activated and samples are vibrated every 4-5 seconds

Automatic Frequency Control

  • The vibratory polisher can be set to automatically select the optimal vibratory frequency (between 60-120 Hz) based on how much weight is loaded into the polishing bowl

Pre-installed Preparation Methods

  • The Saphir Vibro software includes pre-installed preparation methods and consumables to aid procedure selection
  • Operators have the option to add more consumables to the software and create their own protocols
  • Up to 200 programs can be stored in the software
