IMR Test Labs in Ithaca, NY has purchased a Tescan Vega-3 XMU variable pressure scanning electron microscope (SEM) with silicon drift detector (SDD) EDS system, wide field optics, low-vacuum secondary electron (SE) detector and LaB6 filament capability. This new instrument offers improved image resolution, evaluation of a wider range of materials and faster, more informative analyses.
This upgrade is especially important in continuing to serve the needs of clients in the aerospace and power industries, as the next generation of nickel-based turbine alloys require inspection at higher levels of magnification. It will also enhance IMR’s extensive failure analysis and litigation support services, providing more in-depth analysis of metals, polymers, composites, contaminants and corrodents.
