Metallurgists and engineers continue to push the boundaries of what is possible to achieve in construction and mobility, to challenge the accepted wisdom of what metals can do, faced with ever increasing resource scarcity. And the higher the requirements of automotive, structural and transportation alloys, the greater the need for understanding and engineering metals at the micron and nanometer scale. 

By advancing the microscopy spectrum, ZEISS can help you advance aluminum with a full multiscale portfolio of light, electron, X-ray and ion beam microscopes for routine and research applications, with an industry-leading suite of software solutions.

By advancing the microscopy spectrum, ZEISS can help you advance aluminum with a full multiscale portfolio of light, electron, X-ray and ion beam microscopes for routine and research applications, with an industry-leading suite of software solutions. These will unlock your information in light, electrons, and materials. Microstructural analysis of metals is the eyesight of the metallurgist, bringing deep physical and chemical understanding of properties and performance.
