Digital Microscopy

A Collection of Application Videos

October 17, 2012

Digital microscopy offers clear advantages for a large number of industrial quality inspections, particularly for surface analysis. Fracture analysis and the analysis of inclined or vertical surfaces, or in situ inspection of large components such as turbine rotors are just a few examples of applications where digital microscopes can show their full potential.

Here, you can find some videos that show examples of application for digital microscopy.
