The EM-Tec FIB grid holders are designed to hold FIB grids and provide easy access to the posts on the FIB grids to attach the milled FIB lift-out lamellae. The FIB grid holders can be used in the FIB/SEM systems but also for safe storage of the FIB grids with attached lamellae. The EM-Tec FIB grid and sample holders are compact holders which hold the FIB grids directly aside a standard SEM pin stub with a sample. The lift-out lamellas only need to be moved over a short distance to attach them to the FIB grids. The EM-Tec FIB grid holders are all precision machined from vacuum grade aluminium.
EM-Tec F18 is a high capacity FIB grid holding stub for holding up to 8 FIB grids with 4 individual small clamps. It is basically 4 x the EM-Tec F12 on a 25.4mm (1”) stub. Each of the 10mm wide vise clamps includes a ledge for easy positioning of the FIB grids. Ideal for safe storage of the FIB grids with lamellas or for high throughput FIB applications
