TESCAN´s agent in Australia and New Zealand - AXT Pty Ltd announced today the installation of a TESCAN TIMA automated mineralogy system at Northparkes Mines. The copper and gold mine is located near the town of Parkes in central west New South Wales and is owned by CMOC. This installation is particularly significant as it is the first mine site installation of an automated SEM-based minerals analysis system in Australia.

A jury of experts have chosen the correlative RISE microscope as winner of the prestigious Photonics Prism Award in the metrology category. The Prism Award is given for top innovations in the field of photonics, granted by Photonics Media and sponsored by the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). The winners were chosen out from more than 130 applications.

Following 2 successful EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) bids in 2013, Imperial College, London invested in a range of leading technology equipment for further research into advance medial robotics.

TESCAN have recently completed the commissioning of a TIMA (TESCAN Integrated Minerals Analyser) in Perth with the CSIRO’s Mineral Resources Flagship.


Product Focus


The world’s first fully integrated Xe plasma source FIB with SEM enables extremely high ion currents up to 2 μA thus increasing sputtering rate more than 50 times compared to conventional Ga source. This predetermines FERA3 for milling big volumes of materials that were time consuming or impossible so far.
