Vision Engineering Metallurgical Microscope – TIM5

Powerful metallurgical microscopes

Used by metallurgists and materials scientists around the world, TIM5 lets you examine, record and document the fine detail that you need for accurate inspection and assessment. For alloys, plastics, ceramics and other materials, when conventional lighting, reflections or challenging textures make a confident analysis difficult, TIM5 makes life easy.
