ROLLING MEADOWS, IL October 24, 2017. Berg Engineering is proud to represent Buehler’s latest product introduction, the EchoMet 30 Semi-Automatic and Manual Grinder and Polisher. The EchoMet 30 delivers superior performance for heat treat, automotive, aerospace and electronic laboratory environments that require quick, reliable results in production environments.

The formal introduction of the EcoMet 30 will officially take place today at the 29th Heat Treating Society Conference and Expo in Columbus, Ohio at Buehler’s booth #2002. Berg Engineering believes this introduction gives quality control and lab technicians a choice of a more powerful yet easy-to-use semi-automatic or manual grinder polisher with the strength to perform in high sample, high use environments.

Both the EchoMet 30 Semi-Automatic and Manual are constructed from solid cast aluminum and offer a sturdy and reliable solution for demanding operations. The EcoMet 30 Semi-Automatic is designed for maximum robust operations whereas the Manual provides simple operation and includes a splash guard, ergonomic design and low bowl height for better control and comfort. The straight drain, removable bowl liner and quick remove platen keep daily maintenance simple and uncomplicated.

The EcoMet 30 Semi-Automatic version includes an intuitive touchscreen interface, with all functions available directly on the home screen. The pneumatic polishing head also has an easy load specimen holder and swing-out head to maximize efficiency and ease-of-use.

According to Buehler Product Manager, Jill Dreschler: “The robust cast aluminum platform used for both the Semi-Automatic and Manual models greatly enhances performance and durability. The careful design of ergonomics will speed and simplify sample preparation, key to efficiency in intensive use environments.”
