Background

The size, shape, and composition of material are critical in the overall design of most products. Roundness or slight elongation, smoothness or roughness, cleanliness or contamination can have a profound impact on end-product function and quality. Successfully evaluating and characterizing these parameters can significantly improve production yields and aid in identifying the source of problems during manufacturing.

Particle Size and Shape Analysis

ASPEX can determine particle sizes and critical dimensions to sub-micron accuracy in either a manual or a fully automated mode. It automatically pinpoints and can identify contamination, wear debris, and inclusions quickly and in an unbiased way. By locating, sizing, and evaluating the composition of particles or features of interest quickly, ASPEX makes an immediate difference and contributes in real time.

Interactive Analysis

Size & Shape Characterization

Determine roundness and elongation.

Composition Determination

What is it? How much?

Product Inspection

Does it meet spec? Are the features measurable?

Incoming Stock Evaluation

Improve supplier quality and production yields.

Particle–Feature Association

Identify the source "fingerprinting."

Automated Applications

Gun Shot Residue Analysis

Automated analysis of sub-micron particles. Trace evidence.

Contamination Particulate Characterization

Critical cleanliness applications. Light optical referencing capabilities.

Inclusion Analysis

Grade products, i.e., divert "heats" to appropriate applications.

Wear Debris Analysis

Monitor wear and prevent mechanical failures. Source identification.
