AxioVision for materials

ZEISS AxioVision – Microscope Software for Materials Microscopy & Industrial Applications


Material Science Software for Research and Engineering

Whether you are a modern metallurgist or an expert in steel microstructure analysis - AxioVision will guide you directly to reliable and reproducible results. For easy operation, this imaging software offers a well adapted graphical interface with structured and easy to learn workflows tailored to industrial demands. You and your department will benefit from useful functions like digital segmentation and measurement tools. This software allows you to investigate the relationship between structures of different materials easily and to analyze their properties.

The functionality of AxioVision for material science and materials engineering expands continuously in order to meet the needs of your samples and applications. A large variety of different software modules for industrial applications are available.  


The Right Module for Every Application

AxioVision offers countless functions for applications in the field of industry, materials research or quality assurance. Thanks to its modular concept, the software guarantees you other advantages too: you can tailor AxioVision precisely to your requirements and only need to learn to work with the functions you actually need. You will find the optimal AxioVision module for your individual task here.


Image Acquisition

You decide which modules you need to adapt AxioVision to your particular application – whether this involves, for example, large-surface material samples or changing height structures. The images you acquire will always offer you the decisive advantage of additional image information.


Image Processing

Process you materials images using functions like Gray Morphology, Image Arithmetics, Fourier- and Color Transformation. Joined structures can be separated to discrete objects. The result is a ideal prerequisite for other image modules like Automatic Measurement. Of course Imaging Plus provides essential functions for brightness and contrast adjustments of your images too. Remove even image artifacts by eleminating specific parts of the images frequency spectrum.


Image Analysis and Interpretation

Utilize all the information in your images. With our analysis modules you can carry out measurements and segmentation interactively or automatically, according to your requirements.


Software Configuration

Whether you want to automate workflows for day-to-day laboratory work, create your own applications or record the history of your images in accordance with the FDA’s regulations, AxioVision can be configured to meet your own individual requirements.
