Microscopes for material analysis must use reflected light. Whether upright or inverted, either can be paired with image capture and analysis systems, including cameras and analysis software. Common applications like grain size, porosity and phase percentage have now been incorporated into ready... Read More
The IsoMet High Speed is a table top precision saw that provides efficient and precise cuts with intuitive control. The innovative machine and vise designs make setup quick and simple. It align cuts quickly by using x-axis blade movement, and tool-less vising adjustment. Precision and abrasive... Read More
Efficient sample preparation in production environments needs to be reliable, repeatable and fast to perform. Especially with high sample volumes of similar materials, the preparation sequence can be accelerated by selecting the optimal equipment and consumables. Using the PlanarMet™ 300 stone... Read more
Quality assessment of cutting blades has its challenges, but these can be overcome. Technique and attention to details with specimen preparation is a key factor to success. Having the specimen flat with no edge rounding will allow an indent to be placed near the blade tip. The use of semi... Read more
