- Compact design that fits crowded SEM chamber
- Rotating jaws test samples at flat or EBSD angle
- Fully customisable to meet any requirements
Modern day Scanning Electron Microscopes can be very complex, especially when it comes to fitting a tensile stage.
The vacuum chamber of an SEM is already a confined space, and there may be other instruments already installed which form additional obstacles.
Swift Instruments have solved this problem by designing a flexible range of new tensile stages which address today's space constraints.
Introducing the Swift SWF 5000 and SWF L5000
Swift Instruments are proud to introduce the Swift SWF 5000 and SWF L5000 Tensile Stages. Providing an already comprehensive specification, these Swift Tensile Stages can be fully customised to meet your exact requirements.
The Swift SWF 5000 provides a compact system for testing samples at both the flat position and EBSD 70° angle. The stage's rotating jaws eliminate the need to tilt or move the stage itself. This allows for both a space saving form factor and greater setup efficiency and ease of use.
The Swift SWF L5000 is a low profile solution for tensile testing at the flat angle. This highly compact design is ideal for tensile testing when headroom is at its most limited.
Heating and Chilling
The Swift Tensile Stages can be enhanced with heaters and chillers. Heaters and chillers are available for both the flat and EBSD positions.
Samples can be heated up to 600°C in air and 1000°C in vacuum. Chilling can reach to 100°C below ambient.
Other temperature ranges are also possible, as the heating and chilling capabilities can be customised to your requirements.
Computer Controlled Workflow
The Swift Controller is compatible with PCs running Windows 7 or later, and is supplied with extensive software. Test routines can be defined which control the load, temperature and positions of the sample. Results can be displayed and saved for later use.
The SWF 5000 and SWF L5000 have the following base specifications:
- Maximum Force of 200N, 5kN and 10kN
- Tensile and Compression Testing
- 3 and 4 point anvils for bend tests available
- Fits samples sizes 54-68mm long, up to 10mm wide and 5mm thick
Swift Instrument Tensile Stages can be fully customised to meet your needs. The Swift Instruments team can offer a bespoke design service to suit even the most demanding vacuum chamber configurations.
