Metallurgical Microscope Systems
Custom configurations are our specialty and this is what makes us unique.
Why settle for a used microscope that is pre-configured and the seller does not want to make any changes to the system setup?
We can handle most requests and this is why M2 Associates Inc, is a premier supplier of custom used microscope systems.

Your R.O.I on a quality refurbished used Microscope System
Used Microscope systems are a key component in controlling costs. Our refurbished systems are generally priced at 60-70% of new OEM pricing and come with a warranty.
The refurbishment process:
All of our systems are rebuilt. We do, at times, offer systems in As Is condition. This may be due to pricing and/or the availability of parts. However, it is always our goal to rebuild systems so that we can offer a warranty.
With the availability of new OEM parts we can configure, as required, some systems with new parts.
Mechanical assemblies: This will include disassembly, degreasing, and refurbishment / replacement of parts. After this process is completed the mechanical assemblies are reassembled and tested.
For Stereo Zooms, we do the same basic process of disassembly the internal Stereo Zoom mechanisms and remove the optical components. All mechanical assemblies are cleaned and re-greased prior to re-assembly.
Optical components: All optical parts are checked to ensure there are no optical flaws. Optical components are checked for chips, cracks or coating deficiencies. Any optical components are replaced as needed. Optics are thoroughly cleaned and re-assembled.
Final Assembly and Testing
For Stereo Zooms, we would then complete the alignment process. For High Power Microscopes we would assemble all optical components and ensure basic optical alignment and that all objectives meet or exceed the OEM parfocal specifications.
Our inventory is constantly changing. It is always best to contact us for your specific needs and we will work to find the system and configuration that you are requesting.
