Hitachi High-Technologies launched the world's first tabletop/benchtop electron microscope in April, 2005. Model TM-1000 was developed to provide a more user-friendly and easily accessible scanning electron microscope equipped with cutting-edge technologies.
Now the TM Series tabletop microscopes are used worldwide, mainly at private-sectors, government offices, science museums, as well as academia, such as universities, colleges, elementary and junior high schools. As of the end of June 2015, Hitachi High Technologies has shipped a combined total of 3,000 units of the TM Series systems, including the first model, the TM-1000; the second model, the TM3000; and the most recent models, the TM3030 and the TM3030Plus.
The TM3030/TM3030Plus are equipped with premium signal detectors which have been incorporated in FE-SEM and VP-SEM and provide unparalleled image quality.
The detectors can be effectively operated under low-vacuum conditions and can support SE and BSE image observation without metal coating.
The TM3030 can be used to observe BSE images. The TM3030Plus can be used to view BSE images, SE images, and mixed images. Image modes can be switched simply with a click of a button on the GUI.
Magnification range : 15 to 60,000x (Up to 240,000x with digital zoom)
The TM3030/TM3030Plus offer a variety of optional accessories, including EDX, 3D view software, various stages, and more.
Quick X-ray analysis with a wide detection area (30mm2) is possible. Also, multiple-element analysis, such as Point/Area analysis, line scan, and element mapping, can be performed.
Incredibly simple operation with powerful automatic functions.
Controlled from either a laptop or a PC.
No troublesome alignment necessary. Eliminating observation conditions has made the TM3030/3030Plus easy-to-use systems for anyone and anywhere.
