Kleindiek RoTip rotational tip plug-in tool

The ROTIP-EM is a rotational axis plug-in for the MM3A-EM micromanipulator. It enhances your system by providing a fourth degree of freedom that is required for numerous SEM and FIB applications.

Standard tungsten probe tips can be inserted into the front of the axis and rotated with a resolution of 0.1° per step, allowing applications such as advanced TEM prep, tomography and STEM to be performed with ease.  The MGS2-EM microgripper can be combined with the rotational tip to allow gripped objects to be rotated.

By combining the ROTIP-EM with a FMS force measurement system force can be measured from any attack angle.
