"I would definitely recommend this ion mill from Gatan, it's very versatile with cooling possibilities. The service from Gatan is very good, it's easy to contact them both over the phone and in person as well. All different kinds of samples can be polished (oxides, superconductors, materials). PIPS gives excellent results on all material families. Also, plane view and FIB samples are possible."

695 Precision Ion Polishing System (PIPS™ II)
"Thin foils preparation for steel is quite excellent"
The Precision Ion Polishing System II (PIPS™II) is a revolutionary enhancement of the PIPS™ Ion Mill System which has defined the standard for TEM sample preparation for 20 years.
The PIPS™II incorporates the patented Whisperlok® with the X,Y positioning stage for precise centering of the milling target. The PIPS™II incorporates a 10 inch touch screen for ease of use and increased control and reproducibility of the milling process.
The Digital Zoom Microscope monitors the polishing process in real time and the color images can be stored in Gatan’s Digital Micrograph® software for review and analysis while the sample is in the TEM.
