The AtlasTM Auto Presses have a generous working distance of up to 155mm between the pressing faces and are suitable for the preparation of KBr discs for infrared analysis using PREMIER evacuable pellet dies.

They can also be used with the AtlasTM Heated Platens for applications including the preparation of the polymer lm substrates.
The AtlasTM Auto Presses 8T, 15T, 25T & 40T are pro- grammable, microprocessor controlled, power assisted hydraulic presses, operating to 8 Tons, 15 Tons, 25 Tons and 40 Tons respectively.

They have been designed for a wide variety of pressing applications including XRF and IR sample preparation. All presses are fully compatible with PREMIER dies and other sample preparation accessories. They enable the controlled application and release of an applied load, accommodating samples up to 200mm in diameter. The applied load can be maintained inde nitely, or to a spe- ci c time via user programmable functionality.

The graphic display shows the press program status and load conditions providing a digital display of load ap- plied, together with an end of cycle alarm/indicator.
