ATM selects Aptex to distribute sample preparation equipment

Metallographic laboratory equipment producer ATM has appointed Aptex to distribute its range of sample preparation equipment and consumables in the UK.

The ATM range includes precision and abrasive cut-off machines, mounting presses, grinding, polishing and etching machines and hardness testers, as well as ancillary products including software, microscopes and image-analysis hardware.

Available as single machines or as combined elements such as Systemautomat, which automates the grinding and polishing processes of the specimen preparation process, all ATM equipment has been designed for building into integrated laboratory systems.

Key to the new supply capability are the ATM ŒBrillant‚ which are wet-abrasive, sectioning and cut-off machines, produced either as standard or custom built.
