Abstract:
The next generation TM3000 Tabletop microscope is announced today by Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation. Building on the success of its predecessor, the TM-1000, the new microscope offers significantly improved performance, including magnification up to 30,000x and better resolution, in a unit that occupies 20% less space and has an energy saving design.

Next Generation TM3000 Tabletop Microscope From Hitachi Offers Improved Performance And A Smaller Footprint

UK | Posted on January 29th, 2010

With over 1000 units shipped since the launch of the TM-1000 in 2005, Hitachi's Tabletop microscope technology has established itself in a host of applications and industries worldwide, by simplifying and facilitating observation of the microstructures of material surfaces. Used in applications ranging from R&D to quality assurance in materials, semiconductors, food products, and biotechnology, and with installations in research institutes, schools and science museums worldwide, the Tabletop microscope plays an important role in education as well as industry.

The new TM3000 is a tabletop variable pressure scanning electron microscope, characterized by even easier operation, with a ‘one button' auto start, auto focus and other automated onboard functions. These are all controlled through a laptop computer with an intuitive, Windows® 7-based user interface, designed for use by non-specialists. Improved electron optics has not only allowed the maximum magnification to be extended to 30,000x with improved resolution, but also provides three easily selectable modes of operation: surface, normal, and high-brightness/contrast.

The exceptional depth of focus, combined with the improved imaging capabilities makes the TM3000 even more versatile. A larger specimen stage means that larger samples can be examined. The inclusion of an adjustable pressure charge-up reduction mode means that samples can be imaged without any special sample preparation. Even insulating and uncoated materials can be easily imaged.

Shipments of the compact, affordably priced, and exceptionally user-friendly TM3000 are scheduled to start on April 1, 2010 and initial annual shipments of 500 units are anticipated. In addition it is hoped that greater utilization of the TM3000 at schools, science museums and other science education sites will help counter the recent trend of students away from science programs.

About Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation
Hitachi High-Technologies was formed in 2001 through a merger of three companies that created a unique combination of manufacturing, sales, and service capabilities. The Instruments Group of Hitachi, Ltd. brought an established reputation in measuring technologies; the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipments Group of Hitachi, Ltd. supported the efficiency of technology and the realization of more sophisticated performance; and Nissei Sangyo Co., Ltd., provided both a trading function specialized in cutting edge technology, with a focus on electronic products, and the ability to construct new businesses based on its global network. Further mergers added the chip mounter business in 2003 and the flat panel and hard disk related manufacturing systems experience of Hitachi Electronics Engineering Co., Ltd. in 2004. Hitachi High-Technologies now aims to be the global leader in high-tech solutions in its four business segments: electronic device systems, life sciences, information systems and electronic components, and advanced industrial products.
