HS-FF

Highest reproducibility through automatic sample preparation

The basis for optimum results in optical emission and X-ray fluorescence analysis is a fully-automatic functional sequence during sample preparation. Herzog milling machines deliver the basis for reliable analyses because they guarantee the highest level of reproducibility through program-controlled, automatic processing of samples. 

Perfect integration through a modular design

Herzog milling machines are built in modular form. In this way they can be perfectly integrated into existing operating sequences. They can also still be integrated into automatic systems at a later stage without any problems. Herzog products are moreover designed for continuous use under rough operating conditions. That guarantees long service life and high reliability. 

Stored program controller with 16 processing programs

The Simatic S7 SPC controller – other controllers can also be integrated- guarantees an error-free automatic grinding process for sample forms up to 800°C. Up to 16 programs, defined by parameters, can be saved and protected by passwords. The processing steps- sample clamping, measurement of sample height, use of milling cutter 1 and/or 2- all take place automatically. Feed speed, milling depth and cutting speed can all be set on the swiveling control terminal. Special programs for (patented) automatic deburring of round calibration samples are available in combination with an optional special milling head. The controller display keeps you informed the whole time on the current operating status. The specified control and monitoring processes are the basis of precise analyses since they guarantee the reproducibility of sample processing.

Safe and operator-friendly

The HS-FF is completely enclosed and sound-insulated. Emissions are reduced to a minimum. Numerous safety circuits guarantee optimum protection for the operation personnel. When using the HS-FF in a container laboratory the sample can be optionally be fed in from outside the container via an infeed hood with an interlocking system and the conveyed to the milling unit by means of a transport system. 

Cost reduction through automation

The modular construction of Herzog precision machines permits an automation concept which is accurately tailored to your own operating requirements. The costs of implementation of the automation concept are quickly repaid since time and costs are saved through the optimization of your working sequences.

The HS-FF can be combined with the following modules:
