World Precision Instruments micro-beveler system

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Beveler machine


  1. Resource Description
    "An optically-flat mirrored glass disk, wetted with an abrasive slurry, spins at 60 rpm (120 V), producing sharply beveled tips on fluid-filled glass microelectrodes of one micron or smaller. This eases cell impalement and improves the electrode's linearity. The microelectrode’s resistance can be monitored during beveling with WPI’s Omega-Tip-Z™ megohm meter. The beveler is permanently mounted on a precision magnetic plate that gives stable support for the optional 1350M Micropositioner shown. Start-up kit includes 0.05 µm alumina abrasive powder #3531, “O” ring, wick electrode, and wick support."
