CNC mill
CNC mill

A Flashcut CNC 6000-series gantry mill used for drilling holes in glass and silicon wafers. Holes as small as 0.25 mm diameter and as large as 2.5 mm diameter can be drilled with accuracy and precision approaching 10 microns. Drilling of brittle substrates is enabled through the use of diamond-tipped drill bits and high spindle speed (30,000 rpm).

MicroPIV

The LaVision Flow Master 2-D ┬ÁPIV System is designed to measure velocity fields of particle seeded flows with micron scale spatial resolution using particle image velocimetry (PIV) techniques. The light source is a double pulsed Nd:YAG laser that is focused by an epifluorescence microscope with a high numerical aperture on a microfluidic device.
