Dimple Grinder II

Fast and reliable mechanical method of pre-thinning to near electron transparency to greatly reduce your ion milling times and uneven thinning.

Advantages Research Spotlight Media Library Publications Resources Back to top
  • Large transparent areas: Utilizes both the large wheel and flat wheel to preserve a large transparent area after processing
  • Stronger specimens: Leaves a thick supporting rim to protect and strengthen the specimen after dimpling
  • Direct preparation of TEM specimens: Produces a final thickness of <3 μm in dimpled specimens
  • Accurate depth and thickness control: User-defined stop point and real-time display ensure you can produce the appropriate dimple depth and thickness
  • Micro-positioning: Provides both orthogonal and intersect axes for more accurate positioning
