Steel and Other Metals
Multi-modal characterization and advanced analysis for industry and research
Steel and other metals underpin the modern world. Metals are a versatile group of materials used in an incredible range of applications—from construction, transport, and infrastructure, to automotive, energy, and consumer goods—each demanding a different set of properties and specifications from the metal or alloy.
Accurate measurements of material properties at each stage of the research and development or manufacturing process help metallurgists understand how variables impact microstructure, alter the composition and introduce defects or impurities. Even microscopic defects or deviations can cause the material to fail specification, or worse, cause components to fail in service.
ZEISS Microscopy solutions help metallurgists to accurately design, understand and measure material properties at each stage of the innovation and manufacturing processes.
