Inverted Metallurgical Microscopes
Inverted metallurgical microscopes allow observation of opaque objects that are too large to place under an upright metallurgical microscope. Metallurgical microscope samples are placed on an inverted metallurgical microscope and allow for inspection of grain size and the state of the metals.
Inverted metallurgical microscopes are used in the engineering and manufacturing processes to look for metal fatigue, corrosion, fractures and ruptures that resulted from stress, cracks and hydrogen embrittlement.
Inverted metallurgical microscopes are used when a standard upright metallurgical microscope
might not have enough working room for large parts. Some applications for the inverted metallurgical microscope include: electronics, telecom, cast iron nodularity and flake analysis, metallurgy, grain sizing, surface examination, mobile phone manufacturing, metal manufacturing, antennae production and shavers and watch production.
