Metallography is used to investigate metals from copper and titanium to iron, steel and alloys of every description. These investigations can now be performed quantitatively and reliably using the INNOVATEST Metalloscope™ 1 software module, running on most of our higher-end hardness testing machines*. *(features of Metalloscope™ 1 software depend on the particular tester model).

The microstructure of metals has a significant influence on properties such as strength and corrosion resistance. Therefore, a detailed investigation of the microstructure with the help of microscopy is central to metallographical disciplines as well as many industrial applications.
