Struers Tenupol 2 + Polipower:

Apparatus for automatic, electrolytical thinning of specimens for examination in a transmission electron microscope. Specimens with a diameter up to 10 mm dia are polished from both sides simultaneously to achieve a thin foil with a centre hole as small as possible. The thinning is controlled by an infrared light source, stopping the process as soon as the first light can pass through the established hole.
