Webinar: Why Cleanliness Analysis is Important

Cleanliness analysis using the microscope and software is increasingly important for quality assurance in a wide range of industries, including automotive and transportation. Cleanliness analysis can enhance productivity using a high quality microscope and software that reports to user-specifications or common standards such as ISO 16232 or VDA 19.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • How particle analysis on a filter can be conducted accurately and efficiently
  • How particles can be counted, measured, and differentiated into reflective and non-reflective categories
  • How to achieve these results in a repeatable and reproducible manner
  • Analysis of a wide range of different particles
