PELCO video alignment microscope

The PELCO Video Alignment Microscope (VAM) is designed for easy alignment and inspection of samples. It was originally designed as an accessory for the PELCO Dimpler for deprocessing/delayering and site-specific polishing applications. It allows for easy targeting of an area of interest, as well as precise control of the position, size, and shape of the bottom of the dimple or thinned area of the specimen. The VAM has a magnification of 100X or 200X (digital), with a bright TFT display. This unit includes a number of improvements over the Video Alignment Microscope originally offered by South Bay Technology Inc., particularly with regards to ease of use. These include: much improved platen holding and sample motion; an upgraded display; and a high quality crosshair in the optical path, rather than a screen overlay.The PELCO Video Alignment Microscope may also be used as an inspection scope along with our Lapping Fixtures and other instruments.

This unit includes a number of improvements over the Video Alignment Microscope originally offered by South Bay Technology Inc., particularly with regards to ease of use. These include: much improved platen holding and sample motion; an upgraded display; and a high quality crosshair in the optical path, rather than a screen overlay.

The PELCO Video Alignment Microscope may also be used as an inspection scope along with our Lapping Fixtures and other instruments. The base can be transferred directly between the 15000 Lapping Fixture and the Dimpler. This allows for very easy disc thinning and subsequent dimpling.

  • Improved platen gripping allows for precise positioning of the sample with the X-Y micrometer stage
  • Precision X-Y stage motion for sample alignment
  • Epi-illumination through the objective lens gives excellent contrast
