The Model 170 was designed in collaboration
with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Max Planck Institute for
the precision orientation and lapping or polishing of single crystals. This
design is based on the work of Mader et al at MPI and is capable of applying
a controlled force to delicate samples. The advantage of the Model 170 is
that it can be mounted directly on an x-ray track for Laue Back Reflection
orientation. Precision of 0.1° in orientation can be obtained by double
exposure with 180° rotation of the fixture in the optional Model 17011 Track
mount. Used to polish oriented crystals.
