AI-Driven Automation

The Most Intelligent AFM Ever Experienced with AI Robotics Technology

The only AFM to automate all setup and scanning processes with the simple click of a button, Park FX40 automatically changes and replaces its own tips, to avoid any contamination or user-related errors. Operators are offered tip choices including the type, model, application, and usage.

With storage capacity for up to four different samples simultaneously on the chuck, the sample camera effortlessly locates the most relevant spot for scanning. It uses the right tool for the right job with the probe Identification camera. Instantly accesses information on each of the tips available, including the type, model, application, and usage. It then selects your probe with the click of a button.

Automatic Probe Pairing

The Probe Identification Camera reads the QR code imprinted on the chip carrier of a newly loaded probe and extracts and displays all pertinent information on each of the tips available, including the type, model, application, and usage. This enables you to quickly select the best probe tip for each job.

Automatic Probe Reading

With automated probe exchange, you can now replace old probes easily and safely in full automation. Harnessing the convenience of an 8-probe cassette, along with a magnetic controlled mechanism, the Park FX40 autonomously mounts the probes.

Automatic Probe Exchange

Automatic Beam Alignment positions the laser beam onto the proper location of a cantilever and further optimizes the PSPD position both vertically and laterally. It shifts the X,Y and Z axis for clearer images, with no distortion, all autonomously at the click of a button.

Automatic Beam Alignment

Safety Features

Safety Probe Landing

Maximizing to Protect Your Sample

New tip crash prevention protects the tip and AFM scanner using a combination of software interlock and hardware switch. Through algorithmic programming, the Z stage can’t physically go down any further than the limit of tip collision with the sample surface, allowing you peace of mind for the safety of your sample and AFM.

Real-Time Environmental Monitoring

Environmental Sensors

SmartScan displays and stores measurements from sensors, which measure essential environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, leveling and vibration. This allows you to compare your scanned images with different environmental channels, providing further environmental indicators for system diagnosis.

Automatic Warning Detection

Safety Probe Pickup

Built-in robotics and a machine-learning algorithm detect and warn you about incorrectly placed probes, since you can use either the automatic or manual tip loading feature. Access various error status report during probe loading to make sure you have the highest degree of accuracy.
