NovaCentrix EX Series

Expand your process window with the NovaCentrix Controlled Environment Chuck EX Series. Designed for use with
the PulseForge®  Invent series standalone tool, our EX Series allows sample processing beyond standard
atmospheric conditions. Pre-heat samples up to 300°C or increase thermal transfer by cooling.
A porous vacuum chuck minimizes thermal contact resistance and supports simple, repeatable
sample placement. The EX-2 and EX-3 sealed chambers allows purging with N2 or other non-hazardous
process gas. An external vacuum pump option is also available on the EX-3 taking photonic curing
into a low vacuum environment. Take R&D to the next level with the NovaCentrix EX Series Controlled
Environment Chucks.
