ZEISS EVO for Industry​

Take your inspection to the next level.​

ZEISS EVO is the conventional entry-level system, with a tungsten or LaB6 based filament, for daily repeatable imaging tasks, e.g. high-resolution material analysis, with largely automated and supportive workflows. The system offers flexibility for less demanding structure sizes. ​

Fields of application​

  • Quality analysis and quality control​
  • Failure analysis and fractography
  • Materialography
  • Cleanliness inspection​
  • Morphological and chemical analysis of particles to meet ISO 16232 and VDA 19 Part 1 & 2 standards​
  • Analysis of non-metallic inclusions 

ZEISS EVO: The do-it-all electron microscope combining data quality with intuitive operation

Take your inspection to the next level. ZEISS EVO offers you a menu of configuration options to meet your exact price and performance requirements. Match your desired resolution to your application and choose from three chamber sizes.

You can also opt for high vacuum, variable pressure, or ambient pressure to suit your sample type. Then choose between SE, BSE, EDX, VP, and C2D detectors to suit your application. With ZEISS EVO, you enjoy the benefits of electron microscopy at an affordable price.​

Application examples​

  • Electronics​

    Debris and contamination are evident on the surface of an integrated circuit. Imaged with the SE detector in high vacuum at 10 kV.​

  • Fuel cells​

    Fuel cells typically consist of polymer electrolyte membranes sandwiched between platinum electrodes. These critical components need to be imaged at low voltages to ensure surface detail information is obtained at high resolution. Cross section with an LaB6 source (left) and tungsten source (right) at 3 kV. LaB6 source provides more surface detail at low accelerating voltages.​

  • Galvanized mild steel​

  • Material analysis using X-ray spectroscopy (EDX)​

    BSE images of representative corroded surfaces with EDS map: chrome, lead, copper, nickel, carbonium, and oxygen.​

  • Failure analysis on the surface of a ball bearing​

    Surface of the ball bearing imaged with the BSE detector reveals cracking and flaking of the surface structure.​

  • Technical Cleanliness​
