Workflow-orientated materials science imaging software supports automated measurement and coating thickness evaluation
An operating system for a range of Olympus microscopes, including both upright systems (e.g. the BX51) and stereomicroscopes, the software includes new predefined measurement and analysis options.
As thickness is the most important variable affecting coating quality, the new dedicated Coating Thickness solution determines thickness quickly and easily using the rapid and reliable Calotest method (also known as the Ball Crater method). The fast Automatic Measurement solution for edge-detection-based measurements using pattern recognition is able to perform multiple measurements in a single live image, greatly improving efficiency. This includes a validation tool that provides a pass/fail flag for every measurement.
All in all, Stream 1.9 contains more than 50 measurement and analysis functions based on the most up-to-date standards. For quality assessment of steel and cast iron, the dedicated Cast Iron solution measures graphite nodularity by size, shape and distribution, with results automatically generated according to international standards.
Olympus Stream 1.9 covers the control of the microscope, cameras and accessories, image acquisition and processing, measurement and analysis, as well as report generation and data management. The software also features highly effective image acquisition and processing capabilities such as high dynamic range, extended focus image and tilt compensation, enhancing image quality for more detailed inspection and analysis.
For easy integration into existing workflows, the software now offers full Windows 8 and Microsoft Office compatibility. This valuable capability allows the export of tables and graphs into Microsoft Excel for statistical analysis, as well as the use of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint for the generation of professional reports and presentations.
