The COXEM CP-8000 Ion Mill Cross Section Polisher can provide the perfect finish for SEM specimen preparation. Using an argon ion beam, the CP-8000 gently removes material from the surface of a sample, atoms at a time. This gentle process does not deform or smear a sample's surface. Used as a final preparation after mechanical polishing or sectioning, the CP-8000 gives a perfect finish for delicate samples.
With its' use friendly 7" touch screen interface, the CP-8000 is very easy to use. The touch screen GUI is clear and intuitive, and settings can be saved as stored "recipes" to make recurring sample preparation tasks more efficient. An integrated camera allows users to view inside the polisher's chamber and adjust the position of shield plate and specimen.
Ion mill cross selection polishing is commonly used in semiconductor and electronics applications, such as vias, solder joints, bonded layers, and any other situation where softer layers may be deformed by more aggressive mechanical polishing.
The CP-8000 is also capable of performing delicate cross sectioning of powders, to examine the internal structure in pharmaceutical and materials sciences applications.
