Cutting Equipment and Consumables



All aspects of the section process included in one machine. Let’s cut to the point.

As the only cut-off machine in its field, Magnutom-5000 can map out the most complex of section sequences and simulate all individual sections for you to validate. Magnutom-5000 is the largest machine in its field with four automated axes, as well as a rotary table, which enables a large variety of sectioning possibilities. The spacious 1000 mm wide cutting chamber and sliding front door make it possible to use a forklift or crane to load heavy samples. The motor is so powerful that you can install two cut-off wheels and make parallel sections. Easy cutting of the hardest workpieces.

Fully automatic, high-volume sectioning in rough environments

If you visit some of the largest automotive materialographic facilities around the world, there is a good chance that you will come across the Axitom fully automatic cutting machine. One of the reasons for this is the fact that Axitom meets the very specific demands which the automotive industry makes regarding workpiece sizes, complex shapes, and serial cuts. A very large cutting chamber, automatic tables, and movement in X, Y, and Z directions allows for positioning, clamping, and sectioning of both large, complex, and irregular workpieces. Axitom is available in two models and multiple versions, and throughout this webpage the full-featured model is displayed. Get an overview of all versions at the bottom of this page.

Advanced precision cutting machine with large capacity and application flexibility
The very first Secotom precision cutting machine was launched in 2001 and became an immediate success. Since then, thousands of Secotoms have left our production to serve laboratories worldwide. An intuitive user interface means that hardly any training is required. The optional automatic X-movement supersedes time-wasting re-positioning, and a movable T-slot table allows for sectioning a range of sizes and shapes. Secotom contains multiple additional features such as a laser light, an ExciCut mode for hard materials, and intelligent feed control.

  • Cutting capacity 50 x 165 mm.
  • Automatic precision cutting machine
  • Cut-off wheel size 75 – 203 mm dia.
  • Intuitive user interface for easy operation
  • Ultra-flexible T-slot table for precision cutting
  • Automatic X-movement for cutting series
  • •Laser light for precise positioning


Small, automatic precision cutting machine for gentle sectioning of delicate workpieces

A small, low-speed, automatic precision cutting machine for sectioning delicate materialographic workpieces that can’t tolerate the heat generated by high-speed cutting. The gravity feed design allows for sectioning of various material types, with high accuracy and reproducibility. Minitom is designed with speed and efficiency in mind. The simple design means it only takes a few minutes to setup a cut, and the machine can be set to stop automatically once the cut is done, giving you more time to work on other tasks.

  • Workpieces up to 30 x 40 mm
  • High-precision tabletop machine
  • Low speed protects against heat deformation
  • Accuracy of +0.01 mm
  • 75-125 mm CBN and diamond cut-off wheels
Cutting Consumables

Cutting Consumables

Wide range of cutoff wheels for all types of materialographic preparations

Struers’ cut-off wheels are especially designed for Struers’ machines, including state-of-the-art abrasive wet cutting techniques. They have been specially developed for materialographic specimen preparation – producing specimens that are in perfect condition for the next preparation step.

You can use Struers’ comprehensive selection of cut-off wheels, saw blades and additives to handle virtually all cutting materials, and can do so without causing structural changes to the wheel or specimen due to overheating or deformation, ensuring a maximum life time of the wheels.
