Key Features

  • Multi-purpose hard metal probes suitable for poking, breaking in between substances, cutting, scraping, marking, and more. It is available in various shapes e.g., probe, knife, scraper, and fork
  • 5μm probes allow for precise cutting of hard materials like metal, silicone wafers, and glass, as well as marking targets before FIB processing
  • Micro-peelers, with their sculpting knife-like tips, offer a wide range of material compatibility, suitable for flat-surface cutting of polymer like high-barrier films, as well as removing small embedded particles, eliminating micro-protrusions, pinpoint cutting of IC bonding wires, and cutting tiny wires
  • Knife-edged probes are effective for collecting foreign substances embedded in tablets and extracting foreign objects buried in non-ferrous metals, hard plastics, etc. It can also be used for ultra-fine marking

Product Information

  • Marking on hard material possible to mark <5μm line width
  • Marking on PE resin sheet
  • Cut and explore embedded foreign substances in resin e.g., ~5μm foreign substance
  • Surface condition check of specific areas e.g., determine hardness, presence on the surface or embedded
  • Removal of inconvenient surrounding protrusions in ATR measurements. Target marking of FIB processing areas e.g when laser markers are unavailable.
  • Marking on metals, silicone wafers, glass, etc. (with intervals of ≥3μm)
  • Removal and repair of foreign substances adhered to or embedded in the surface of electronic devices (≥5μm).
  • Isolation of foreign substances that have infiltrated flexible substrates
  • Incremental scraping while observing protrusions (approximately 10-100μm).
