SIEG 3501 CNC Milling Machine

The model 3501 is a full CNC milling machine that provides three axis machining and even includes a 4th axis driver so you can add a 4th axis rotary table by simply plugging it in. This model can achieve positioning accuracy to 0.0005″. It will machine at up to 20 inches per minute and rapid traverse at up to 80 inches per minute. With a work envelope of 10.2″ (X-axis) x 4.3″ (Y-axis) x 7.1″ (Z-axis) the model 3501 has large capabilities in a small machine.

Sonix UHR2001 Scanning Acoustic Microscope

The Sonix UHR 2001 Scanning acoustic microscope is capable of detecting delamination, cracks and voids within boards, encapsulated electronic components and attached bare die. Samples are immersed in water with a transducer that sends an ultrasonic sound into a sample and senses the resulting echo. The lower (5 & 15 MHz) probes show less detail, but penetrates to greater depth. The standard 75 MHz probe cannot probe as deep, but provides the greatest detail.

Cost: Standard Rate
