Our metallographic laboratory performs analyses of micro-structures of metal materials and their alloys using an Olympus BX 51M light microscope which can evaluate:
- defects of materials – cracks, incompleteness, cavities, porosity
- defects of foundry and consequent processing
- chemical non-homogeneity
- welds etc.
The evaluation of the micro-structures of metal materials is not only important for suppliers of various types of products, but also for customers of such products.
Examples of evaluations of micro-structures of Mn steels are given below:
Unsuitable steel micro-structure
Suitable steel micro-structure
We are able to analyze the structure of manganese steels not only with the use of Olympus microscope but also with the use of portable microscope BX 500E directly on the casting itself. The casting can be of any sizeand therefore we do not need to have a sample cut out of the casting.
