SliceMaster Series Precision Cutting from 10-200 μm

SliceMaster Series Precision Cutting from 10-200 μm

Originally developed for FTIR microscopy, SliceMaster is a line of compact precision cutting tools that may also be used for any variety of applications requiring extremely thin sample sections, such as packaging materials, films, laminates or pellets. The SliceMaster is an economical tool that can repeatably slice thin sections without damaging samples.

Low Cost

As a replacement for more expensive microtomes, the SliceMaster can repeatably cut thin sections without damage to the sample.

Simple and Safe Handling

The very sharp blade is retained behind a safety guard and adjustment is very easy with a micrometer adjustment for the section thickness and hand operated cutting action.

HW-1 Multi-Angle Slicer

The most versatile slicer with adjustable angles from vertical to 45°. Ideal for exposing the surface of multilayer laminates for FTIR microscopic imaging and measurement.


TS-10 Pellet Slicer

In addition to the benefits of the Multi-Angle Slicer, the Pellet Slicer includes a dedicated holder for irregular sized pellets, seeds, caplets and tablets. This holds the sample for exposing flat surfaces and shaving thin sections from a sample.


HS-1 Vertical Slicer

Simple version of the HW-1 with fixed vertical cut (90°).

DC-500 Diamond Compression Cell

DC-500 Diamond Compression Cell


The DC-500, diamond compression cell, compresses thick/uneven samples for measurement.

  • Micro sample (approximately 20 µm) for measurement of solid samples
  • Macro and Microscopic measurement with transparent chamber
  • Requires only two screws to compress the sample
  • Excellent corrosion resistance and a non-adhesive, can be easily cleaned with organic solvents such as acetone
  • Hard surface with a high level of precision, so grinding and rolling are possible for easy sample observation
