Non-metallic inclusions (such as sulfur) and their distribution have a considerable effect on the properties of steel. Based on how you analyze structures and identify inclusions, you will derive important knowledge for meeting special requirements and safeguarding consistent quality in the steel industry.
Carl Zeiss has teamed up with experts from the steel industry to develop fully automated image analysis: NMI microscope system. Now you will always get results that can be precisely reproduced in accordance with the current standards: EN 10247, DIN 50602, ASTM E45, ISO 4967 and JIS G0555.
The new EN 10247 standard lays down requirements according to which you can record the purity of steel automatically. The pan-European Directive for the steel industry requires precise measurements. The NMI system simultaneously measures in accordance with the standards DIN 50602, EN 10247, ASTM E45, ISO 4967 and JIS G0555 – that means you have the benefit of being able to compare your findings, especially during the DIN 50602 to EN 10247 transitional phase.
