Metallographic tests

The station allows to analyze the microstructure of metals and alloys, such as grain size, porosity, inclusions, cracks and other material defects.


  • grinder-polisher for preparing micro and macroscopic specimens (two-plate)
  • metallographic microscope (maximum magnification 1250x
  • macroscope maximum magnification 40x
  • data acquisition system with a camera
  • Motic Images – image processing software

Intended use:

  • material structure assessment
  • evaluation of weld sections
  • evaluation of defects and microcracks
  • determination of chemical composition of solid metal samples using the emission spectrometry method
  • determination of metal type based on chemical composition
  • supply inspection tests (confirmation of material quality)
