Sub-micron sample motion control.
High-precision milling.
Sample height detection and tilt correction by a drill-tip sensor, contour-following function.
Sample map navigation increases sample-area field-of-view.
50mm of computer-driven sample movement on X, Y and Z axes.
Data/image file re-coordination, including save, recall, and export.

MicroMill is a microsampling device designed for high resolution milling to recover sample powder for chemical and isotopic analysis. The combination of submicron stage resolution and positional accuracy, real-time video observation and a custom designed software system allows for sampling of complex accretionary structures in skeletal and crystalline materials.
