Vacuum Chamber with X-Carve

Michael Junkin, a scientist with the Institute for Molecular Engineering, recently used our X-carve to create this project. He says, “the project was to machine a few pockets and an o-ring groove for a plastic (acetal) chamber that is used as a vacuum chamber to treat silicon wafers for making microfluidic chips used in systems biology experiments.”

Acetal is a high-density plastic that is a great showcase for the capabilities of the X-carve.
