Rave Scientific offers the EM-Tec CV1 large centering vise SEM sample holder. This holder provides a unique advantage. It keeps the sample always clamped in the center of the holder. Both vise clamp jaws simultaneously move away or to the center of the holder at the same time.

The EM-Tec CV1 large centering vise clamp includes two base plates on which the vise jaws can be re-positioned for optimum sample compatibility.  The brass dual vise spindle is located underneath the base plates with knurled handles at both ends. The spindle can be operated from either side. One side includes a removable spindle extension to provide better grip when opening the centering vise. Made from vacuum grade aluminum and brass to provide dry lubrication. The vise jaws are mounted on the base with brass mounting screws.

Features of the EM-Tec CV1 large centering vise SEM sample holder are:

  • Provides firm grip for large and heavy samples
  • Automatically holds the sample in the center of the SEM stage.                   
  • Easier navigation from the center of the SEM
  • Position able vise jaws on the base plate for optimum sample compatibility.
  • Standard stage clamps from 0 to 110mm
  • Spindle extension can be removed to reduce overall size
  • Optional extension base plates allow clamping from 0 to 155mm
  • Standard vise jaws with triple grooved side and smooth side
  • Optional vise jaw with single 120° groove for round sample
