IMR Test Labs – Lansing Acquires KEYENCE VHX-5000 Microscope

IMR Test Labs now offers metallurgical services using a KEYENCE VHX-5000 microscope at our Lansing, NY location. The VHX-5000 allows IMR to provide enhanced, 3D, free-angle imaging at magnifications previously not available, providing you with more accurate measurements and photomicrographs of your test samples.

The advanced functions of the VHX-5000 increase the efficiency of basic analytical operations like observation, image capturing, and unit measuring, which permit faster turnaround times on many metallurgical tests. The VHX-5000 is non-destructive, so after testing is complete, valuable materials can be returned to you. Additionally the VHX-5000 is portable, allowing IMR to test your oversize samples and to test your samples offsite.

The microscope is utilized by IMR in numerous metallurgical analyses such as:

  • Microstructure
  • Grain Flow
  • Grain Size
  • Pitting Depth/ Laser Marking Depth Measurements
  • Debris/ Particle Size
  • Inclusion Rating
  • Surface roughness characterization (3D imaging)
  • More accurate Dimensional Analysis
  • Medical Device Implant Coatings Analysis
  • Characterization of Solder Joints
