Layer Thickness Measurement

One or more layers of cross-sectioned samples can be measured. With the OLYMPUS Stream software technology, the shapes are defined and the layers automatically measured. This module is used for a wide variety of applications, such as evaluating paint-coating thickness and layer thickness evaluation of multilayer materials such as composite plastics.

Cast Iron

This module is for casting manufacturers who need to measure and control the graphite nodularity to check the mechanical characteristics of their cast products. With OLYMPUS Stream, this nodularity can be calculated by graphite size, shape, and distribution. The results are automatically created according to international standards (JIS5502, ASTM E247, and ISO945).

Grain Sizing Intercept

This module is for steel manufacturers measuring and controlling grain size after cross-sectioning, polishing or etching steel samples. OLYMPUS Stream can calculate the grain size number G by the intercept method automatically with no time consuming manual actions. The results are created according to international standards (JIS0552, ASTM E112, and DIN50601).
