Multiple functions for making different kinds of microtools.

The MF-900 microforge offers a wide range of functions such as cutting, bending, fire-polishing, and forming a spike for making many different kinds of microtools by processing pipette tips. An easy-to-use manipulator is provided for operating the heater and pipette, and the microscope is operated three-dimensionally with control close to the operator’s hand. Separate rotation mechanisms for vertical and horizontal movement allow the pipette to be approached at any angle, while a special device in the heater section can form it into any required shape. As well as conventional scales, a protractor to measure angles is provided on the microscope eyepiece. With the heater turned ON/OFF via a foot switch, and the heater section integrated into the microscope body, all control actions are performed easily and precisely close to the operator’s hand.
