Introducing the
NovaCentrix EX-1

Designed for use with any PulseForge® 1200/1300 tools, the EX-1 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-1 sealed chamber allows purging with N2
or any other process gas. An external vacuum pump option is also available taking
photonic curing into a vacuum environment.


Take R&D to the next level with the NovaCentrix EX-1.

  Straightforward sample processing/alignment on porous vacuum chuck surface   Designed for operation on existing PulseForge 1200/1300 tool sample tables
  User-selectable controlled temperature range from 10°C to 300°C   Vacuum to 200mT and below with external vacuum pump option
  Integrated bolometer holder for quick process checks   Removable hinged chamber lid with quartz window allows vacuum and pressurized processes
