As many of you know, we have a special blue sky research department in The Netherlands. This is where a small team of R&D engineers cook up all kinds of amazing bespoke solutions for customers. It is also where we can try things out, new ideas that we simply believe to have amazing potential.
Some of these ideas make it to production and some of them are just cool toys that scientists haven't found a good application for....yet.
I just wanted to share a couple of neat tools that these guys just built to enable us to make a tiny high temperature furnaces for quenching fluid inclusions and potenitally other samples under high resolution optics.
This heater is extremely difficult to build and yet these guys have made some really fantastic jigs to help our production engineers build it in quantity.
