Quick 3D imaging of alloy defects

Webinar On-Demand - Fast 3D Imaging: Milling and In Situ Microscopy


Aluminum (Al) alloys play an important role in the production of aircraft and vehicles, as well as products in other industries. Defects present in the Al alloy used for the production of aircraft, vehicles, or other products can have a significant effect on their quality, performance, and lifetime. Characterization of Al alloys in 3D can lead to a better understanding of defect formation and how to minimize or eliminate it.

In this webinar you will learn how to acquire 3D-images of macroscale defects in non-transparent alloys up to 6 times faster compared to current sample preparation and imaging approaches.


Register to the webinar: New technique for quick 3D imaging of alloy defects. Fast 3D Imaging: Milling and In Situ Microscopy.

This webinar will also be available on demand, soon. Register now.


Leica specialist - Wolfgang Gruenewald - will introduce step by step the entire workflow for Al alloy sample preparation and 2D imaging recording.
