ZEISS microscopy solutions for non-metallic inclusions (NMI)

Evolving quality control processes in steel production with new fusions between instruments and software, bridging the gap between the micro and nano worlds.

  • You can rapidly identify common inclusion types found in steel, including sulfides, oxides and silicates by their color, shape and appearance with a light microscope and automated analysis software.
  • For some uses of steel, you will find it necessary to assess the material further by determining its chemical composition. You will achieve reliable identification of inclusions with the use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and associated X-ray element analysis techniques from ZEISS.
  • You can bridge the worlds of efficient light microscopy and high-resolution scanning electron microscopy by correlating the two techniques. Easily document inclusions found during the LM inspection process for chemical composition analysis in the SEM by applying the correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) technique.

Scanning electron microscopes and particle analysis tools from ZEISS enable you to automatically detect and characterize particles in steel. Light and electron microscopes are critical tools for quality control in steel production, providing morphological and chemical composition analyses.

Shuttle & Find technology, a correlative interface, quickly enables you to discover the precise location of small inclusionsin steel using a SEM, initially identified using a LM. This efficient and streamlined workflow significantly increasesproductivity and sample-throughput

for Non Metallic Inclusions

One of the basic quality issues in steel production is "cleanliness" or the presence of non-metallic particles in the material.
