SEM Specimen Ion Mill for Sectioning and Polishing

Cross scetion polisher

The Cross Section Polisher (CP) Clean polished cross section of almost any material in simple steps The CP can prepare a perfect cross section from almost any material such as; Difficult-to-polish soft materials such as copper, aluminum, gold, solder, and polymer, Difficult-to-cut hard materials such as ceramic and glass, and Composites of these materials. The cross section prepared by the CP is suitable for EDS, WDS, Auger, and EBSD (Electron Back Scatter Diffraction) analysis, and for observation and measurement of multi-layered structures.
