XL100 multi holder for four large SEM stubs or four specimen holders

The EM-Tec XL100 multi-holder is an innovative holder designed to hold four large SEM specimen stubs or four SEM specimen holders up to a diameter of 53mm. This holder is intended for use on large SEM specimen stages with an X-Y travel range of 100 x 100mm or more. This practical and affordable holder greatly increases productivity of multiple specimen imaging and analysing tasks. The XL100 can also be used on smaller SEM stages in combination with the EM-Tec XT off-centre SEM stage extender strips.
The unique X shape of the holder saves weight, enables easy loading and securing  of  SEM stubs or holders on the XL100. At the centre of the XL100, the engraved X and numbers enable easy identification of each “leg”. Supplied with additional SEM stub extenders to increase height and to bring the holders closer to the SEM pole piece, for when flat specimens need to be imaged or analysed.

Compatible SEM specimen stubs for the EM-Tec XL100 multi holder are:

  • Standard SEM pin stubs with 25.4, 32, 38 and 50mm diameters
  • Short Zeiss pin SEM specimen stubs with 25.4, 32, 38 and 50mm diameter
  • Hitachi M4 threaded cylinder specimen stubs with 25, 32 and 50mm diameter

Compatible EM-Tec SEM specimen holders are:

  • EM-Tec bulk specimen holders R32 and B26
  • EM-Tec metallographic mount holders M26, M32 and M40
  • EM-Tec multi pin SEM stub holders P4, P6 and P8
  • EM-Tec filter holders F35 and F47

The XL100 increases productivity by holding multiple large specimens which reduces venting and pumping times. Additionally, multiple SEM specimens can be analysed in a single session without operator interference (overnight operation).
