Automatic Failure Analysis System
Shimadzu AIM-9000 is automated to ensure all steps involved in micro analysis can be performed quickly and easily. All Shimadzu accumulated know-how in micro analysis is concentrated in the AIM-9000 to strongly support analysts.
A Series of Smooth Micro Analysis
Three steps for micro analysis "Observe","Measure",and"Analyze"are automated.
Loading Samples Is Easy
Pressing the [Eject Sample] button makes it easy to load and remove samples by automatically lowering the stage and switching the objectives to expand space. Furthermore, the lower Condenser mirror can be removed to enable reflectance/ATR measurements of samples up to 40 mm thick.
Quickly Determine the Measurement Position - Wide-Field Camera and Microscope Camera
Shimadzu's proprietary wide-field camera and microscope camera help observe samples efficiently. In addition to observing a large area up to 10 x 13 mm, the wide-field camera also supports variable digital zooming. Furthermore, by sharing positional information with the microscope camera, it achieves a digital zoom function capable of zooming to a magnification of about 330x for observing extremely small areas as small as 30 x 40 µm.
Automatically Determine Measurement Positions - Automatic Contaminant Recognition System
A function that automatically recognizes contaminants is included standard. The analyst simply clicks one button and the software automatically recognizes the contaminant. It even determines the optimal aperture size and angle in only one second. Two models are available: the standard model and a model optimized for extremely small areas. Users can choose the best model for their application. The automatically determined measurement positions can either be measured without editing or the analyst can add or delete measurement positions. Sample images are stored into the measured spectra automatically. The sample and measurement positions can be easily identified later.
Identify the Cause of Failures
The contaminante analysis program-the functionality for automatically qualifying contaminants is included as a standard feature in LabSolutions IR software. Measured spectra using AIMsolution can be loaded directly into LabSolutions IR and analyzed. The contaminant analysis program identifies measured contaminants with high precision using a spectral library for substances commonly detected as contaminants in combination with Shimadzu's proprietary identification algorithm.
