Straining Holders

Elongate electron transparent specimens at controlled rates.

  • Single push-button operation starts or stops the elongation process
  • Gear reduction needed to provide small displacement rate required in TEM studies is achieved using a 2190:1 low-backlash, spur gear train followed by a 40:1 reduction precision worm and wheel drive
  • Hexlok™ specimen securing mechanism provides firm and secure clamping of the tensile specimen
