The Logitech WG6 polishing system, comprising of a PM6 precision polishing machine and a WG6 polishing head, is capable of producing the desired finished sample to a very high standard. This can be high reflectivity, low relief, ultra-flat surfaces or minimal edge roll off.
This is a highly versatile system, offering a wide range of facilities including variable and carousel speed and rotational direction. With a capacity to polish a batch of up to 6 samples at one time, or individually, using a variety of sample holders. The WG6 is an ideal system for rock polishing.
PM6(W) Precision Polishing Machine
The system has been designed to enable quick and easy changing of polishing plates. The metered automatic abrasive feed unit automatically supplies polishing fluid to the plate, reducing operator time and product waste. Peristaltic pumps also allow for control over the amount of abrasive fed to the plate, allowing for easy process repeatability.
The intelligent Graphical User Interface (GUI) allows you to control machine functions and set process conditions, such as combined lapping and polishing options and slurry monitoring. Full management of plate speed is set and controlled via the GUI, enabling high levels of process control.
WG6 Polishing Head
Manufactured using corrosion resistant materials enables the WG6 to be used for more aggressive process routes. The powerful, low voltage DC motor provides sufficient torque to rotate the fully loaded carousel at a speed of up to 35rpm.
The WG6 is auto-detected by the PM6 system, allowing the user to access on-screen controls via the Graphical User Interface(GUI).
Samples rotate independently as they are retained by six drive rods.
Incremental loads up to 1.4kg may be placed on each individual drive rod to assist with the polishing process. A double load bar provides the facility to increase loading at three positions for large specimens i.e. 76 x 51mm.
