Automatic Tip Exchange (ATX)

Automatic Tip Exchange performs fully automated tip exchanges in order to seamlessly continue automated measurement routines. It automatically calibrates cantilever location and optimizes measurement settings based on measurements of a reference pattern. Our novel magnetic approach to the tip exchange yields a 99% success rate, higher than the traditional vacuum techniques.


Automatic Wafer Handler (EFEM or FOUP)

The XE-3DM can be further customized by adding an automatic wafer handler (EFEM or FOUP or other). The high-precision, nondestructive wafer handler robot arm fully ensures XE-3DM users to receive fast and reliable wafer measurement automation.


Ionization System

Ionization system effectively removes electrostatic charges. It ionizes the charged objects and is very reliable since the system always generates and maintains an ideal balance of positive and negative ions without causing any contamination to the surrounding area. It also reduces the accidental electrostatic built-in charge that may occur during sample handling.
