Specimen Holders (our own design, for Dimension AFM)
These holders significantly extend the capability of the Dimension 3000 and 3100 AFMs.

Model MV-1 . Mini-vise general purpose sample holder for Dimension AFM.
Recommended for holding odd-shaped and large objects , including parts up to 50 mm diameter and 30 mm height. For example, use the MV-1 for microtomed cross-section specimens mounted in epoxy blocks, SEM stubs, metallurgical specimens in round blocks, chunks of large machine parts (such as piston rings), or for silicon chips, thin polymer sheets, etc. Sample sizes listed above are for use with the 150 mm diameter chuck in the Dimension 3000/3100 AFMs. Maximum sample height may be different for other AFMs. Specimens are held between vise jaws. The clamping force is adjustable using finger screws.
This is our personal favorite, based on frequent use for our customers’ analysis projects.
