MSX305A Sectioning Machine

Automated Large Sample Sectioning of Hardened Materials

The LECO MSX305A Series is developed for automated oscillation and servo-pulse sectioning of large samples of many different types of materials. It’s great for induction-hardened parts, through-hardened tool steels, and carburized pieces, among other things. The Y-axis table can be adjusted manually for easy sample positioning and parallel sectioning. Features a powerful 10.05 HP (7.5 kW) engine and solid-steel structure to support up to 14 in (350 mm) blades.


  • With a 1.25 in (32 mm) arbour, a production-grade spindle can hold up to a 14 in (350 mm) wheel.
  • For the production environment, weld-steel construction is used.
  • A catch basket is available as an option for capturing small, sectioned samples.
  • T-slotted table with big sectioning compartment, 15.75 in (400 mm) x 15.75 in (400 mm) for variable sample fixturing.
  • Built-in coolant tank with coolant fluid level gauge, 30 gallon (115 L).
  • Side ports are removable and the electronic casing is sealed.
  • Sample feed adjustment knob.
    Convenient, easy-to-use control panel with dual-screen display of 5.6 in. (142 mm).
  • Manual sectioning on the Z-axis (MSX305A1 Series).
  • Pulse sectioning (both MSX305A1 and MSX305A2 Series), blade direction, table direction, oscillation, and manual sectioning are all controlled by joystick (MSX305A2 Series only).
