LAS Software Modules for Industrial Applications

Microscopy tasks in industrial applications such as quality control and quality assurance, failure analysis, research and development, as well as materials science and forensics are varied and diverse. From image acquisition to reporting, software plays an integral part every step of the way.

To provide the specific software capabilities you need, Leica Microsystems offers optional modules that complement the Leica Application Suite (LAS) software platform. Choose from a range of software modules – see below for more information on what our modules can do for you.

Extend LAS capabilities in image aqcuisition and documentation of single images

LAS User Management Create user groups with different access levels. Allow or restrict individual functionalities for respective access levels.
LAS Extended Annotation Annotate your images with text in various fonts and colors, graphics, or measurements.
LAS Measurements Measure parameters such as length, area, diameter, angle, or perimeter of objects you mark with adjustable tracing lines, drawing directly in the live images. Add labels for easy analysis. Apply measurements to several images to determine statistical trend and compare data in measurement templates. Apply long-distance measurements that span more than a single field of view.
LAS Reticule Display digital reticules, such as grain size, lines, circles, cross hairs and counting grids, on real-time images as electronic overlays for inspection, measurement, point counting, and comparison. Unlike eypiece reticules, digital reticules adjust to the magnification or zoom of the microscope.
LAS Live Stream Movie Capture images at set time intervals automatically to create movies to stream. Download as individual images or AVI files.

Extend LAS capabilites in image aqcuisition, measurement and analysis in 2D and 3D

Leica LAS Live Image Builder Create images that are bigger than a single field of view. Obtain a single in-focus image, if shallow depth of field provides only a partly focused image.
Leica LAS Multifocus Create a single sharp image by capturing a stack of images at diffeent focus positions and combining them automatically into an Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) image.
Leica LAS Montage & Montage Viewer Create sharp 2D images from several partially in-focus images. In connection with the 3D Surface Viewer, creation of 3D images is also possible.
Leica LAS Multitep Create 2D images from multiple tiled images captured automatically. Single images can be retreived and analyzed with LAS Image Analysis.

Extend LAS capabilities in metallography

Leica Cast Iron Expert Assess cast iron, adhering to industry standards including ASTM A247, ISO 945-2 and JIS G5502. Use this software module for ductile irons to identify graphite nodules and place them into shape and size classes. Assess the ferrite and pearlite content and combine the results from these separate analyses.
Leica Dcarburisation Expert Identify and measure the depth of decarburisation in steel. Compare the carbon bearing phases at the surface of the specimen with the amount present in the unaffected interior.
Leica Dendrite Expert Assess and analyze dendrites in metals and alloys. Determine dendrite arm spacing automatically or manually to see the spacing distribution. Document your results in a Microsoft Excel report.
Leica Layer Thickness Expert Assess layers and coatings of materials such as paint, chrome plating, and plastic coatings, adhering to laboratory requirements by incorporating industry standards.
Leica Grain Expert Evaluate the properties of materials by analysing grain size to help determine the characteristics of the final product. The incorporation of industry standards ensures your analyses conform to your laboratory requirements.
Leica Phase Expert Measure multi-phase microstructures indentified by their distinctive color or contrast in materials and metallurgy laboratories. For example, reflectivity of components in oil-shale; polarisation colors of constituents in a thin rock section for modal analysis. Determine the occurrence of these phases with reference to the overall image or to one of the selected phases.
Leica LAS Image Analysis Detect, measure, and evaluate features and particles of powders, fiber cross-sections, pigments using a wide range of parameters. Use histograms, pie charts and statistics to illustrate results that can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
