Wafer Cleaving Kit with MatWafer Cleaving Kit with Matarrow11Cleaving Kit

The complete tool set to scribe and cleave cleanly. This is a critical step to getting the best cross-sections. The kit includes two diamond scribes for marking and scribing, one pen style diamond scribe and pliers for cleaving. This kit is suitable for a wide variety of substrates and wafers (Si, GaAs, glass). The standard configuration includes one each:

  • Diamond Scribe-Pen style
  • Diamond Scribe-straight tip
  • Diamond Scribe- 30 degree tip
  • Tweezers with black soft fiber fine tip (length 6¼")
  • CleanBreak Pliers-Wafer cleaving pliers.
  • Clear plastic ruler with metric and US units
  • Tungsten cleaving wire
Optional Cleaving Kit with Mat

The kit includes a large, 12x18" wafer mat.

Note: Always remember to use safety glasses when cleaving the wafer.

LatticeAx™-100

arrow11Small Sample Cleaver

Simple mechanics make the SSC an important addition to the cross section sample preparation workflow.

Using simple mechanics, the Small Sample Cleaver (SSC) uses a novel sample holder and a cleaving platform to safely cleave samples into chips as small as 2x2mm. The novel sample holder allows samples from 4-10mm to be held during indenting and cleaving. No more handling samples directly with fingers. Gloved hands are ok, the holder has no screws, springs or pins.

Features and Benefits
  • Easy to use
  • Indent small samples (4-10mm) using a novel sample holder designed for use with the LatticeAx™
  • Safely cleave samples as small as 4mm by 3mm accurately and repeatedly
  • Repeatable cleaving of small samples without manual handling
  • Can be operated securely with gloved hands; no more handling samples directly with fingers
  • No more fumbling; no need for screws, springs or pins
  • Sample hold-downs accept samples of various widths (3-15mm)
  • Sample cleaving pins easily transfer between the indent position on the LatticeAx™ and SSC cleaving position
  • Two cleaving pins accommodate various sample types
  • The small sample cleaver (SSC) base comes with 4 magnetic hold-downs
  • Guage sets the sample for a 0.5mm indent (versus the standard 1mm)
  • A storage case secures all components
