Heating Microscope with Automatic Image Analysis
The Heating Microscope is a complete testing system designed to enable you to easily determine the high-temperature characteristics of a wide range of materials. Its method of measurement is based on thermooptical analysis.The silhouettes of a test object are used to identify its characteristic temperatures The Heating Microscope software determines the deformation, sphere, hemisphere and flow temperatures. Based on quantitative measurement of the test object height and width, dilato metric curves can be viewed on screen or printed out. These curves can be used to derive information on sintering or blistering or even on direction dependent shrinkage behavior. The wetting behavior of melts on various substrates can also be characterized by measurements of the contact angles.
