Company Image

The new ZEISS Imaging Suite shortly to open here at the 3M BIC offers businesses an opportunity to investigate, characterise and accurately measure prototypes and products and to look at items that have been damaged in use using laser to understand how and design preventative measures.  The ZEISS Imaging Suite will house a range of optical, laser and electron microscopes.  These techniques, also enhanced by access to X-Ray technology for internal examination, offer a forensic insight into the surface characteristics of items thus providing valuable information on manufacturing techniques, wear and tear patterns in use or in the case of failure and as part of quality assurance procedures.  Microscopic examination is applicable to materials, manufactured products and biological systems.  This free to attend event with parking on site will provide an overview of each available technique and its application through real-world examples.
