Metallographic Image Analysis Modules
Our range of Image analysis systems provide a single fully integrated analytical tool for study and documentation of microstructures using fast and automatic image processing techniques. Quantification of phases ( ASTM E566, ASTM 1245 ), inclusions ( ASTM E454 / E1245 ), Grain Size ( ASTM E112 ), Nodularity (ASTM A247), Porosity (ASTM A276), Decarburization (ASTM E1077), and coating thickness (ASTM B487) is achieved by capturing the picture through a high resolution color digital camera interfaced to the camera port of the metallurgical microscope. The image is imported onto a Pentium based PC by a specially designed image acquisition card for preview and storage.
Measurements (click on module link in table below for more details)Image Analysis
Weld Check software is a powerful, easy-to-use tool that enhances the ability to quickly and efficiently measure critical welding features such as fillet welds, throat, leg lengths and penetration (part no. WELD-CHECK).
-Depth of Penetration
-Plate thickness and % weld penetration
-Face and Root reinforcement thickness
Hardness Pro is a powerful, easy-to-use tool that enhances the ability to quickly and efficiently measure indent size and convert to a hardness value (part no. HARDNESS PRO).
-Automatic or Interactive measurement of Vickers, Knoop and Brinell Indents
-Manual measurement on live image or acquired image
-Automated calculation of the best circumference minimizes the average quadratic error
I-mage acquisition in high resolution 64-bit Colors
I-n the event, that the automatic measurement fails, the program offers the possibility to manually measure through the acquisition of three points in Brinell, D1 and D2 in Vickers and Simple L in Knoop
-Accuracy up to 0.001 µm
-Case Hardness depth (CHD) measurement is automatic
