The PP3004 QuickLok consists of three components:

  • The sample port is mounted to a suitable, customized flange. QuickLok PP3004 consists of a chamber with integrated controllers for pumps, venting and transfer and connections to the pump and ventilation system.
  • The compact vacuum transfer chamber has a bayonet fitting with a sample holder with dovetail profile (shuttle). Standard sample holders are included. A wide range of optional holders allow the adaptation to different samples.
  • The sample stage of the SEM chamber is retrofitted with a special table adapter for receiving sample holders. Further included is an LED light chamber, which is mounted on the inside of the QuickLok. The light turns on automatically when the sample is transferred.
