Thin foil electropolisher TenuPol

Trade name
Struers Tenupol-5
Technical description

The TenuPol-5 is designed for automatic electrolytic thinning of specimens for examination in a transmission electron microscope. Establishing parameters for new materials and storing them in the method database is simple, using the built-in scanning function and additional enhancement functions. The TenuPol-5 consists of two separate units - the control unit and the polishing or thinning unit. A perforated specimen for transmission electron microscopy is prepared in a few minutes using a sample with a diameter of 3.0 or 2.3 mm.
