Demonstration of the use of the cut-off saw to remove the bulk of the rock chip from your slide, creating a "thick-section" that is ready for final grinding ...

You should be able to yank on the rock without making it move. If the rock shifts during cutting it can damage the blade or burn out the drive belt. Also remember that the blade cuts a 3 mm thickness of rock (about 1/8"). 4. Using the ratchet wrench, position the vise so that the first (outside) cut through the rock is at least 2 cm from the vise.

Kemet have a range of Thin Section & Sample Preparation equipment to help with your processes; Sectioning of rock, ceramics, minerals, glass, concrete. Precise material removal of petrographic thin sections. Our most popular machine is the Kemtech III - able to accurately lap and polish thin sections mounted on glass slides down to 30 microns.

About Mineralogy and Thin Sections. The purpose of preparation of rocks, minerals, ceramic, and biological specimens is most often: Classification of rocks. Identification and mapping of minerals: dating or exploration, for example. Analysis: major and trace elements, textural studies, or isotopic composition, for example.

Demonstration of the final step in the thin-section making process which is adding a glass cover slip.

A thin section of rock is prepared so mineralogists and petrologists can identify, study, and analyze the material more closely. This is known as thin section preparation. Using this method, you can classify minerals, identify problems in quarries or structures, examine mineral potential in geological environments, and identify the geographical source of archaeological artifacts.

There are 3 saws located downstairs in the Rock Cutting Room (Darwin 21) that are used to cut rocks and prepare billets to make a thin section. These saws all use diamond blades that are cooled by either water or oil. Tile saw: This is the saw used for the majority of our cutting. It is the simplest and easiest to use. Water slab saw: This is the saw to use if you have a particularly …

Our Thin Section Laboratory is currently closed but will remain open for rock saw usage if you are already trained. For the remainder of this summer 2021, recent MS graduate, Kelsey Livingston ([email protected]), will continue to help manage our Thin Section Lab on a part-time basis, keeping access available to the rock saws and other peripherals, with …

A geological cutting machine (GEOCUT) is used for thin sectioning rocks, glasses, ceramics, minerals, concrete, etc. It has a cast aluminum base, which houses the motor and the working space. A large window made of a polycarbonate resin thermoplastic and a sealed 12-volt lamp in the chamber allow an explicit observation of the process.

How to make rock thin sections, without much equipment! What you need: • petrographic glass slides and cover slips. • Epoxy. • small diamond saw (a tile saw will do fine). • lap for grinding -- a 10 to 12" square of plate glass will work if you don't have a wheel lap.

The Hillquist Thin Section Machine is used to prepare thin sections of mounted samples. A thin section cut-off saw and grinder have been incorporated into one unit. Its straight- forward design allows the operator to concentrate on making thin sections, not operating the machine.
