Metallographic optical microscopes allow the user to view opaque items at high magnification with reflected and transmitted light, which are used for a variety of specialty applications such as semiconductor silicon wafer manufacturing, inspection and quality control like inspection of grain size, surface inclusions and defects, crystallography, and analysis of sand castings in iron metal foundries.
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 metallurgical microscopes are available in binocular and trinocular models with both upright,inverted and boom stand microscope systems, while long working distance NCM-M5000 inverted metallurgical optical microscope features stable stand structure, advanced stage design and comfortable operation, with wide field eyepiece WF 10X/22 and bright or dark field Infinite LWD Plan Achromatic Objective 5×/0.12/∞/-(BF/DF) LWD 10mm, 10×/0.25/∞/-(BF/DF) LWD 10mm, 20×/0.4/∞/0(BF/DF) LWD 5mm, 50×/0.75/∞/0(BF/DF) LWD 1.3mm, 100×/0.9/∞/0(BF/DF) LWD 0.7mm,it can identify and analyze not only a variety of metals, alloys, non-metallic material and the organizational structure and integrated circuits, but also micro-particles,
wires, fibers, surface coating and so on. Digital cameras can be added to the trinocular tube to take images and make image analysis.
DIC observation is optional.
