Sonoscan® has unveiled its newest Lab Model 9600™ C-SAM® acoustic micro imaging system, specifically designed to serve as a general-purpose tool for laboratory/failure analysis work or for low-volume production inspection.
Like the recently introduced technology-laden Gen6™ system, Model 9600 incorporates advanced Sonolytics™ software and its highly-rated graphical user interface. With the Gen6 and the 9600 Sonoscan has raised the performance level for laboratory acoustic microscopes. The 9600 in particular is designed to put Sonoscan quality in the hands of budget-conscious users.
Standard in the 9600 is PolyGate™ analysis software, which has proven its usefulness in imaging multilayer or bulk materials. PolyGate permits the user to set up to 100 individual gates per channel for a sample.
During a single scan, PolyGate produces a separate acoustic image for each gate. Depending on the material, each gate may be as thin as 20 microns.
The 9600 employs a linear motor for X-axis scanning, a tower mounted scan reference platform, and is rated for Class 1000 cleanroom operation. It has a full portfolio of optional features.
