EM-Tec compact and universal vice sample holders

Vice type specimen holders are quick and easy to use. They hold the specimen by clamping it between the moving jaws, this enables quick specimen loading and reduces down time. They especially useful when similar specimens or series of the same specimen need to be examined. Using a vice specimen holder is easier, quicker and cleaner than using conductive adhesives or glue. A vice clamps the specimen and provides the rigidity needed for high resolution imaging. The compact EM-Tec SEM specimen holders currently available are:

  • EM-Tec V22 compact vice specimen holder for specimen sizes up from 0-22mm. One fixed jaw and a spindle driven moving jaw. Cost-effective compact vice which can be used in both standard SEMs and table top SEMs. Made from vacuum grade aluminium, brass spindle and stainless steel screws.
  • EM-Tec V22L low profile version of the EM-Tec V22 compact vice holder. The jaws are 3mm high instead of 10mm, the rest is the same.
  • EM-Tec MV22 combined compact vice holder (0-22mm) plus multi pin stub holder for up to 5 standard 12.7mm pin stubs. This cost-effective multi holder has been designed for table top SEMs and SEMs with smaller specimen stages. One fixed jaw and spindle drive to move other jaw. Made from vacuum grade aluminium, brass spindle and stainless steel screws.
  • EM-Tec 3V22 triple compact vice holder includes three separately adjustable EM-Tec V22 compact vices on a single base plate. Enables holding and investigating three different specimens to save on SEM venting and pumping time. Made from vacuum grade aluminium, brass spindles and stainless steel screws.
  • Additional optionally available vice jaws are:
    • vice jaw with a single 120° large groove for round specimens
    • standard vice jaws with triple grooved/smooth side; vice jaws can be stacked to increase the jaw heigth from 12 to 24mm.

Made from vacuum grade aluminium, brass sliders and stainless steel rods and springs.

The EM-Tec vice specimen holders are available with pin and with an M4 threaded hole. For use on JEOL SEMs, we suggest to use an EM-Tec SEM stub adapter.
