Metallographic optical microscopes offer high magnification with
reflected and transmitted light to allow the user to view opaque
items for specialty applications such as measuring instruments for
measuring thin films, electroplating coatings, grain size, surface
inclusions and defects.
They can also be used for metallic grain microstructure analysis
and identification, measurement of thin films, electroplating
coatings, microscopic analysis of opaque surfaces, study of
prehistoric stone age tools and artifacts, historical preservation,
the study of metallurgy, and metal patina analysis.
Our NCM-V1000 inverted metallurgical optical microscopes allow
observation of opaque objects that are too large to place under an
upright metallurgical microscope. It not only can identify and
analyze a variety of metals, alloys, non-metallic material and the
organizational structure and integrated circuits, but also
micro-particles, wires, fibers, surface coating such as some of the
surface conditions. Digital cameras can be added to the trinocular
tube to take images and make image analysis.
