Metallurgical microscopes are used to examine metal and plastic surfaces. Companies that carry out asbestos research often also use a metallurgical microscope. For research on polymers and other transparent substances that have a double refractive index, the metallurgical microscope is perfectly suitable. You will find various advanced models in our shop.
Metallurgical microscopes use a high magnification. With this, objects that do not let light through can be examined in detail. They are often used to examine thin layers, grain sizes, surfaces and defects. In archaeological research, a metallurgical microscope is often indispensable. Old coins or metal objects can be carefully examined. With metallurgical microscopes, the light source is located in the tube of the microscope, rather than on the underside.
