The new FlexScribe Station is a super-fast, simple method for downsizing wafers and samples by scribing on the topside. It uses a carbide scribing wheel mounted to a sliding scribing mechanism that always makes a straight scribe. This new product is used to scribe a wide variety of materials without restrictions on shape, including glass slides, coverslips, silicon, III-V, sapphire and other crystalline and brittle materials. It can address very small samples down to 5 mm up to 200 mm wafers.
The standard tungsten carbide cutter installed on the FlexScribe is a great for a wide variety of samples including silicon, glass, GaAs and other crystalline materials.
