Quality control of products with metal-based materials can be challenging, from working with recycled metals to the rise of additive manufacturing (AM).
In a traditional manufacturing environment, mass production creates one of the major challenges to ensuring quality control. As with many other materials, manufacturers of large volumes of metal-based products must be able to quickly scan samples for impurities, cracks, and other defects. Marcel Lucas, Technical Sales Support Specialist for Olympus Industrial Microscopy, shares his expertise to offer manufacturers a solution. He says that “enhancing image contrast between these defects and the base material can considerably increase productivity and quality.”
