Precision Diamond Wire Saw With Swing Rotary Sample Fixture and Microscope Monitoring - STX-202P

In stock
Item Number: STX202P
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
STX-202P is a CE certified, small precision diamond wire saw for cutting sample ≤ 2" diameter or square up to 50mm thick. It is designed to provide low stress cut for various materials such as the fragile crystals and TEM or IC samples. It is a premium version upgraded from STX-202A since Mar 2017 with additional add-ons including: 
- Through-Microscope viewing enables accurate positioning for initializing the first cut
- Swing / Rotary Sample Fixture promotes higher efficiency and better cut surface quality
- Pneumatic wire tension control system with digital pressure regulator help maintain a stable wire tension during the cut while provides better adaptability to wires as thin as 0.12mm
- Ultra-thin sectioning up to 0.06 mm for some strong materials

  • Wire Saw Control Consol: Universal 110V or 240VAC  50/60Hz, 200W max. 

  • Premium Add-ons (Through-Microscope viewing, Swing/Rotary Fixture, Pneumatic Wire tension control) for a precise, efficient and high-quality cut
  • Heavy-duty aluminum alloy structure with compact size
  • single wire swing cutting with adjustable wire length from 5-15mm (broken wire still can be used)         
  • Transparent plastic plates are included to prevent Coolant splashing  
Through-Microscope Viewing                

  • Through-microscope viewing allows you to pick up small details on the sample which is essentially invisible to the eye. Thus, accurate positioning for the cuts is supported
  • Li-ion battery-powered microscope provides up to 5 hours of continuous operation
  • 5 meters max. remote monitoring
  • Magnification 10x - 200x

Swing / Rotary Sample Fixture
  • Such fixture has an independent controller for its parameter settings such as swing frequency/ angle (±23°, up to 20 swings/min), rotating speed (30rpm max.) Cycles. Higher cutting surface quality can be expected by swinging or rotating the specimen throughout the cutting process. Please click Pic.2 &3 and video clip to learn more details
  • 110~240VAC to 24VDC power adapter is included

Pneumatic tension system

  • The wire saw features a pneumatic tension system for optimizing the cutting performance and wire adaptability. With such a system, the wire saw can handle different cutting wires from 0.12mm - 0.5mm dia.
  • An air compressor is required. The Air compressor should be set between 30 - 40 PSI in order to cooperate with the system
  • Optional: Digital Pressure regulator 0~130PSI (+/-3% full span accuracy)
  • For the gauge parameter setting, please refer to the first picture below
Motor-Driven Stage   
  • Z-axis: 50mm,  automatically controlled by the digital panel
  • Y-axis: 50mm,  automatically controlled by the digital panel
  • Two-dimension sample stage built-in  360° degree horizontal rotating and +/-10° tilting
Cutting parameters

  • Feed Speed: 0.01 mm/min to 40 mm/min adjustable
  • Back Speed: 1 mm/min to 100 mm/min adjustable
  • Spooler spin speed: 1-260 RPM adjustable
  • Cutting depth: 0.1 - 50mm  
  • Positional accuracy: +/- 0.01 mm

Application Notes

  • The flow rate of the coolant is adjustable by the valve in the blue feeding tubing. Please adjust it properly to improving cutting performance. 
  • Please use the correct cutting fluid. Don't use tap water or any other fluid that would cause corrosion of machine parts. 
  • Must clean the machine after each use.
  • Wire saws applications
  • The wire saw can be placed inside the glovebox with N2 gas via feedthrough at the extra cost
  • It is required to use proper cutting fluid with the saw to prevent corrosion of the machine components. We strongly recommend you use an oil-based coolant or lube cool lubricant with the water. Do not use tap water directly, the rust component is not part of the warranty.
  • Do not over flush the sample stage, it may rust the Z-axis step motor.
  • It is required to apply 10-15 drops Anti-Wear Hydraulic Oil (ISO 32) using an oil can(#19)  before first-time use or continue working for 150 hours.
  • The general purpose grease should be added to the motor shaft periodically,
  • Never cut any materials without the use of proper cutting fluid. If you do so, serious damages can be caused 
  • For cutting the sticky materials such as non-ferrous alloy, epoxy, and plastic, you must sharpen diamond wire frequently. We suggest that cutting sample along with the included dressing stone (Glue sample and the dressing stone side by side and cut them together, this process will help keep the wire sharp enough for efficient cutting. 
  • Please clean the machine after the completion of each use.
