Application – Inverted Vs Upright Microscopes for industrial metallographic applications

Inverted microscopy has become increasingly popular for industrial metallographic applications.  See the table below for some comparisons of functionality of inverted Vs upright microscopes.

There is a strong case for justifying an inverted microscope for metallographic sample preparation examination albeit at a higher investment with benefits such as: ease of use, repeatability and significant process time efficiencies.

Please contact Labquip Sales to arrange a microscope demonstration and see your materials samples on both an upright and inverted microscope.
