Application Reports

  • Sample Preparation of Heat-Treated Materials

    In hardening plants, reproducible, reliable and comparable results are mandatory to create high-quality steel products. For effective process control a large number of samples has to be tested. Due to this high throughput, the sample preparation process should be simple and fast. Moreover, the preparation must result in excellent sample flatness to ensure easy and error-free surface inspection.
  • EBSD microstructure examination using SEM

    The electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique – a powerful tool to study microstructures by SEM (scanning electron microscopy)
  • Materialographic Preparation of Specimens Produced by 3D-Printing Technologies

    One of the various 3D printing methods is additive laser powder build-up welding. This technique is characterized by coating materials in powder form with the help of laser welding. The desired shape of the specific product is formed by following trajectories which are predefined prior to manufacturing. The energy of the laser melts the used metal powder forming a welding bead. The final geometry is given its threedimensional contour by the overlapping of the welding beads based on the paths of the predefined trajectories. Optimization of the additive laser powder build-up welding focuses on economical processing with high quality and accuracy.
