FlexTC is the world´s most advanced Benchtop temperature forcing system. It was developed specifically for operations in semiconductor laboratories, and as such, it is designed to be as compact and quiet as possible (40Dba). FlexTC is a very robust system and it can operate 24/7 over long periods of time. The system is very reliable and today can be found in semiconductor laboratories worldwide.

This Product includes and protected by pending patents.
