Inspection & Live Extended Depth of Field

Inspection and Live Extended Depth of Field

Capture beautifully focused images, regardless of depth, with Live EDF. Whether using a stereo, brightfield, or fluorescent microscope, an automated z-motor is not required.

Inspection & Quality Assurance

Inspection and Quality Assurance

Supported by a wide range of manual measurement and automated measurement features, Image-Pro can quickly be set up to analyze pores or tubing diameters. Advanced data display tools can quickly give a visual reference to measurements outside of a nominal range as in the analysis of a mesh material.

Aerosol Spray & Spot Analysis

Aerosol Spray and Spot Analysis

Water and oil sensitive paper provides a convenient way for evaluating spray nozzle effectiveness in both industrial and agricultural applications. When counting and analyzing spray drops, Image-Pro can be used to measure droplet density, spray distribution, and spray patterns.

Intermetallic Corrosion

Intermetallic Corrosion

The Intermetallic Corrosion Application is purposely built to examine electronic contact areas on IC contacts, looking for corrosion between copper ball ends and aluminum contact sites.

This application helps you identify the contact point region by drawing an ROI over it. With a set segmentation threshold, you can then identify the uncorroded aluminum.

With that information, it reports the percentage area of the ROI not containing uncorroded aluminum –that is, the percentage area covered in corrosion products.

Particle Analysis

Particle Analysis

Particle analysis, whether used for manufactured materials or quantifying potential contamination, requires a sophisticated machine learning segmentation technique called Smart Segmentation. Smart Segmentation allows you to reliably find and quantify the particles in a wide range of difficult imaging environments.

Once the particles have been measured, additional distribution analysis or particle classification may be reported.

Metrology

Metrology

In many industries, testing and quality assurance depends on automatically locating specific features and performing measurements on those specific features.

Image-Pro includes automated edge detection tools such as Caliper to accurately determine specific edge features and measure the distances between them.

In addition, the Template Application uses measurement templates with predefined auto-snap measurement features and tolerance limits to measure various details and perform Pass/Fail quality tests based on the real measurement values and tolerance limits. The App can be used to automate industrial measurements.

3D Visualization & Volume Analysis

3D Visualization and Volume Analysis

In addition to microtome techniques used in SEM imaging to general 3D image stacks, FIB-SEM, focus ion beam, is another technique used in the semiconductor industry. With FIB-SEM imaging, large 3D image data sets can be rendered and viewed as 3D volumes.

In some cases, the 3D image stack must be correctly aligned before 3D volume rendering and analysis can occur. If the image planes are misaligned, critical dimension analysis may generate incorrect results. Image-Pro includes specific image stack alignment methods to correctly align the image stack.

Textile / Fibers

Textile & Fibers

Carbon, natural or synthetic fibers are used in a variety of manufactured goods and industries.

Add the Fiber Separation and Fiber Thickness APPs to your configuration to quickly measure fiber length, thickness – even with overlapping fibers.

Using the advance Fourier analysis (FFT), the orientation of fibers may also be determined.

The combination of Image-Pro with the Capture and/or 3D Module

Document a sample, easily analyze and measure objects of interest. If the sample extends beyond the field of view, simply activate dynamic tiling and EDF to automatically capture, tile, and generate the Extended Focus image, all by moving the sample without the need for automation. Easily analyze your images, save them as protocols and generate custom reports, while implementing the audit function for additional checks to ensure you maintain the highest level of quality in your lab.
