Tungsten Probes

Tungsten probes can be used for a wide range of uses such as cutting, rubbing, and milling.  Probes are available in a range of diameters (from 0.5 µm to 30 µm).  Larger probes provide strength in material manipulation.  Smaller probes are best suited for manipulation of small particles or thin films.
