Heating Microscope with Automatic Image Analysis

Heating microscope

The Hesse Instruments heating microscope is a complete testing system designed to easily determine the high-temperature characteristics of a wide range of materials. Its method of measurement is based on thermo-optical analysis.

Automatic contour recognition and evaluation of the silhouettes of a test object are used to identify its characteristic temperatures according to DIN 51730, ISO 540 and CEN/TS 15404 and CEN/TS 15370-1. Characteristic points - and a sintering temperature as well - are calculated using fixed algorithms. The method is based on quantitative analysis of the test object's height and width (optical dilatometry).

Thanks to the automatic software evaluation, precise and reproducible results are obtained independently of the person who performed the measurements.
