          EM-Tec V22 compact vise type sample holder


The EM-Tec V22 compact vise clamp includes a knurled brass knob to move the spindle screw for opening and
closing this compact vise clamp. Available with either the standard 3.2mm pin or an M4 threaded hole for mounting
on the SEM sample stage or on the EM-Tec SEM stage adapter with M4 screw


Consider wearing gloves to avoid contamination.

  • To open the EM-Tec V22 compact vise type holder, rotate the knurled brass knob at the front of the holder.
    Turning the knurled brass knob anti-clockwise will open the jaws; the moving jaw moves towards the back.
  • Place the sample in the opening (up to 22mm).
  • To close the jaws, turn the knurled brass knob clockwise and clamp the sample. Be careful not to overtighten
    the screw.

Even very thin samples can be securely held in the EM-Tec V22 compact vise type sample holder. For delicate
samples, consider lining the jaws with EM-Tec conductive soft jaw lining kit; #12-003207.
