Model 910 – Lapping and Polishing Machinearrow11Model 910 – Lapping and Polishing Machine

This model 910 is specially designed to provide all of the features required to obtain outstanding results using the EMS Polisher. The Polisher is designed for SEM cross sectioning and also for TEM wedge polishing preparation. For instance, TEM wedge polishing requires that the polishing wheel rotates at a constant speed with high torque at a very low rpm.

This combination of features is not found in standard grinders. Our model 910 provides all of the requirements that a Tripod Polisher needs. This includes the use of diamond lapping films and either colloidal silica or colloidal alumina suspensions. Plain backed diamond lapping film adhered to a glass plate by surface tension, and is easily removed for storage and re-use. Model 910 is also designed for ease of cleaning and disposal of abrasive debris.

Features

  • Variable speed from 8 - 600 RPM
  • Solid, cast aluminum construction

ULTRAPOL Sculpted end polisher offers the fiber optic communications industry the ability to produce accurate end profiles on bare optical fibers.

Improved design of fiber holding, and all processing characteristics, provide concentricity of a couple of microns. This means that accurate bisecting of a singlemode (9 micron) fiber core can be achieved.

Full angular control is achieved with the advanced positioning features of the integral micropositioned polishing head. This makes possible the production of the fiber lens shapes shown below.

The system uses a 5 inch diameter polishing lap – a size specially chosen for improved flatness/run-out and lower consumables costs.

Lapping and Polishing Fixturesarrow11Lapping and Polishing Fixtures

The Electron Microscopy Sciences Precision Lapping and Polishing Fixtures are designed to accurately produce polished parallel, tapered or critically oriented samples with minimal sub-surface damage. A series of specialized fixtures has been developed for lapping and polishing samples up to 6" in diameter, TEM samples and oriented crystals. In addition to size and shape, the fixtures differ in the type of thickness control techniques they employ. The Lapping and Polishing Fixtures are designed to be used either by hand or with a lapping machine (Model 920 above). Sample Mounting Fixtures are also designed to be used in conjunction with these fixtures to ensure that the sample is mounted parallel to the mounting block and that a thin, uniform layer of wax exists between the mounting block and the sample.

Micrometer Controlled Fixtures

The micrometer method of thickness control employs a dial with 25 micron or finer graduations, that is adjusted relative to the outside support ring to set the amount of material to be removed. To set the dial, the sample is initially zeroed against the lapping plate and then the dial is adjusted to create a gap between the outside support ring and the center slide. This gap corresponds to the amount of material to be removed and gradually decreases, as the sample is lapped or polished, until the final thickness is reached. The load on the sample is varied by adding weights or finger pressure to the top of the fixture. Due to the ease of adjustment, a micrometer controlled fixture is generally used when desired sample thickness will vary from sample to sample.

Features:

  • Tungsten carbide base resists wear and maintains sample planarity
  • Wide base ensures stability thereby minimizing sample damage and edge rounding
  • Wear ring is replaceable on some fixtures, which extends the life of the fixture
  • Can be mounted in the Model 920 Lapping & Polishing Machine for semi-automatic processing
  • Micrometer depth control allows precise control over sample thickness
  • Precisely crafted stainless steel construction ensures long life and high precision
arrow11Model 145 Lapping and Polishing Fixture

This model accommodates up to a½" sample mount, which is held in place using a threaded draw rod and locating pin. This small, lightweight fixture is ideal for hand lapping or polishing of samples less than ½" in diameter.

arrow11Model 147

The Model 147E is designed for edge polishing applications where rods, wafers, or fiber optic components are mounted vertically and polished edge on.

arrow11Model 150 Lapping and Polishing Fixture

This model accommodates sample mounts up to 1" in diameter for both parallel and tapered samples. Angled blocks up to 45 degrees are available and are simply mounted in place of standard parallel mounts when tapered sections are desired. The mounting blocks from this fixture are directly transferable from any cutting saw. The Model 150 is for general-purpose fixture and is capable of lapping and polishing multiple small or large samples up to 1" in diameter.

arrow11Model 151 Counter-Balanced Lapping and Polishing Fixture

This model is identical to the model 150 except that the center slide is completely counter-balanced which enables the user to precisely vary the sample load. The model 151 is ideal when lapping or polishing very delicate materials, where only a minimal sample load can be tolerated.

Sample Mounting Fixturesarrow11Sample Mounting Fixtures

The proper mounting of samples is a critical step in the lapping and polishing process. It is imperative that the sample is firmly mounted parallel to the sample mount surface the ensure accurate results. Typically, samples are mounted using a low melting point wax (such as EMS #50400-01). Sample Mounting Fixtures are designed to both monitor the temperature of the wax and to provide a uniform mounting pressure.

Operation:

When using low melting point wax, the mounting block is first heated on a hot plate then a thin layer of wax is melted evenly on it. The sample is placed on the mounting block, an appropriate size pressure plate is placed on the sample and they are placed together on the base of the mounting fixture. A Spring-loaded rod is then positioned in the center of an indent in the pressure plate while setting the pressure with the height adjustment of the arm. The whole assembly is then placed on a hot plate until the correct temperature is reached and maintained for a short while to ensure a uniform layer of wax cooling tray to facilitate the hardening of the wax.

arrow11Model 110 Sample Mount

This model is designed to mount samples up to 2" in diameter and is supplied with 6 Pressure Plates ranging in size from½" to 2" diameter. The unit is also supplied with a set of tongs to lift the fixture when hot. The model 110 is the most basic model and is ideal for routine sample mounting in laboratories.

The Quick Jigarrow11The Quick Jig

A Universal Mounting Fixture.

The Universal Sample Mounting Fixture is a versatile spring-loaded fixture for securing samples with pressure during mounting using adhesives, waxes, and epoxies. The fixture can be used at room temperature or on a hot plate for heat curable epoxies or faster drying of conductive paint. A scale on the pressure rod allows the user to apply reproducible pressure, from very light to heavy. Two interchangeable trays accommodate six different sized disk sample mounts (½", ¾", 1", 1¼", 1½", and 2" diameters) and five angled SEM pin stubs (0°, 45°, 52°, 70°, and 90°). The angled SEM pin stubs are held with screws on the angled surface so that the sample lies horizontally and the pressure applied vertically normal to the sample's surface. The 70° angle is useful for pretilted EBSD sample holders and the 52° angle is useful for FIB holders. The "PTFE" tip contacting the sample is compliant and easily cleaned if any adhesive inadvertently comes in contact with it. The fixture adapts to a large range in sample height.

Model 160 Chemical Polishing Fixture arrow11Model 160 Chemical Polishing Fixture

The polishing of semiconductor materials often requires the use of sharsh chemicals such as bromine or hydrofluoric acid solutions that would corrode the stainless steel from which most of the EMS fixtures are constructed. A special fixture for satisfying this requirement has been developed. The Model 160 is made of "PTFE" and is designed to hold crystal wafers up to 2⅛" diameter while they are being polished with very corrosive chemicals. The sample is held in place by vacuum and the sample is polished by rubbing the exposed sample against a suitable polishing cloth soaked with the chemical solution. The Model 160 is ideal for damage free polishing of semiconductor materials with harsh chemicals and has been used extensively for polishing GaAs with bromine-methanol solutions.

Special Features:

  • "PTFE" construction provides suitable level of chemical resistance
  • Vacuum mounting method ensures simple and uniform sample mounting
  • Allows polishing of samples up to 2⅛" diameter
  • Suitable for bromine-methanol polishing of GaAs
