SC-450 Automated specimen cutting saw

ASTM D4543


This SC-450 is crafted for the purpose of precisely cutting rock specimens to a specific dimension. The mechanism involves moving the entire specimen toward the cutting blade at a preselected, customizable speed using a hydraulic power feed with variable rates. The tool incorporates several essential components, including a fixture to securely hold the specimen, a system for advancing the specimen, a diamond-impregnated cutting blade, an emergency stop switch for safety, a coolant delivery system and a collection pan to capture debris. The cutting area is enclosed by a metal covering that features a viewing window. This setup allows for the safe and controlled cutting of rock specimens, with the capability to achieve diameters ranging from 20 mm to 170 mm.
