Fuel, lubricant and urea filter systems are particularly vulnerable. Component cleanliness has therefore become a central quality characteristic in the modern manufacturing process, especially when fitting components of various suppliers. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/key-factors-for-efficient-cleanliness-analysis/ Fri, 07 Feb 2020 12:27:00 +0000 Dr. Kay Scheffler, PhD David R. Barbero, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/20057 Quality Assurance Cleanliness Analysis with a 2-methods-in-1 solution This report explains how a 2-in-1 materials analysis solution, combining optical microscopy and chemical analysis by laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), leads to an overall more efficient and cost-effective cleanliness workflow. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/cleanliness-analysis-with-a-2-methods-in-1-solution/ Wed, 07 Aug 2019 22:00:00 +0000 Dr. Kay Scheffler, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19763 Metallography Quality Assurance Forensics See the Structure with Microscopy - Know the Composition with Laser Spectroscopy The advantages of a 2-in-1 materials analysis solution combining optical microscopy and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for simultaneous visual and chemical inspection are described in this report. The basic principles of the 2-in-1 solution and a comparison between it and other common materials analysis methods, such scanning electron microscopy (SEM), are explained to demonstrate how a rapid, efficient workflow is achieved. A 2-in-1 analysis solution can reduce significantly the cost and time for obtaining material image and composition data. Such data are instrumental in assuring quality and reliability to make confident decisions quickly during production, quality control, failure analysis, and research and development in industries and fields, such as automotive and metallurgy. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/see-the-structure-with-microscopy-know-the-composition-with-laser-spectroscopy/ Mon, 11 Jun 2018 13:39:00 +0000 Dr. Kay Scheffler, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/20117 Metallography Leica is MAD about LIBS When analyzing material for cleanliness testing, users normally just want a simple way to know whether the particle under scrutiny is normal debris or something more risky. Users can now “LIBS” it to acquire rapidly the composition and then move onto the next manufacturing step. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/leica-is-mad-about-libs/ Sun, 22 Apr 2018 22:00:00 +0000 Mike Tjepkema, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19820 Quality Assurance Metallography Cleanliness Workflow from Leica and Pall Obtaining cleanliness results rapidly, accurately, and reliably is a significant advantage for manufacturers and component suppliers.
