Capable of both single and dual sample mounting, LECO PR-36 is ideal for a variety of sample mounting materials. Its lightweight, space-saving design and convenient desktop style make it the perfect fit for labs of all sizes that are looking for an efficient, durable mounting press. A rugged mold enclosure system allows the sample to be installed and removed easily and safely, while quick heating and cooling of the sample leads to a shortened run-time. A fully-automatic one-cycle operation (pressuring, heating, and cooling) frees the operator to perform other laboratory tasks.
