Cross-Sectioning Tool

Hand Tools

The Cross-Sectioning Tool is used to cross-section small, unencapsulated samples such as IC's and other electronic devices.

The handheld tool's unique design is stable, well-balanced and has a low center of gravity to avoid rocking during polishing. Adjustable Teflon™ feet are used to align the sample with the desired polishing plane. The cross-sectioning paddle is attached using a cam-locking system (no tools needed), allowing quick, easy paddle removal for sample inspection and exact repositioning throughout the polishing procedure.
