Scanning Electron Microscope

Wire rope failure analysis has become an even more important part of the work Wire Rope Technology Aachen is doing. Therefore we are proud to announce the purchase of a second scanning electron microscope.

Our first microscope has allowed us to analyze rope wires and strands. Our new microscope has a much larger high vacuum specimen chamber and will allow us to even analyze entire rope sections. It has a built-in infrared camera which will help us to follow the specimen displacement in the chamber during the operation.
