Easy to operate

When the start button is pressed, the light in the cutting table is switched on and the cut-off wheel starts rotating. The PCB can then be positioned in front of the cut-off wheel so that the cut can be performed exactly where necessary.

Easy identification of vias

To make positioning of the PCB as easy and precise as possible, the manual cutting table is illuminated from underneath. This allows very small vias in the PCB or the copper conductor paths to be identified through the PCB.

Sample protection

Secotom-1 has a built-in wheel cooling system to avoid damage of the sample surface. At the same time, the water holds onto the particles created during cutting, reducing the risk of inhalation.
