Mounting Presses

The Clark Instrument CMP Series Automatic Mounting Press is ideal for a variety of sample mounting materials and resins. It is capable of mounting both single or dual mounted samples, and includes a rugged upper mold design with a slide closure for one hand operation. This enclosed system allows for the sample to be installed and removed much more easily and safely than previous designs. In addition, the CMP provides shortened run-times through the use of its quick preheating function and cooling of samples.
