«Hot Cell» Metallographic Sample Preparation?!

Hot Cell Chamber with IsoMet

“Hot cells” are shielded nuclear radiation containment chambers or vessels used to handle materials or substances with radioactivity. These chambers have limited space to fit metallographic machines together with mechanical manipulators to handle samples during metallographic preparations. Furthermore, waste generation has to be kept to extremely low levels putting a demand on the type of …

Cuts Like a Knife … Hardness Testing Matters

Cutting Edge Hardness Testing

In the highly competitive cutting blades indus­try, it is vital for the blade to have sufficient hardness to retain an edge, while too hard can cause brittle failure. When hardened materials are ground, residual heat may alter the microstructure and soften the blade edge. Testing the hardness of the cutting blades becomes challenging as indents …
