Computer-Controlled Scanning Electron Microscopy (CCSEM)

CCSEM is an automated analytical technique that combines a scanning electron microscope (SEM), x-ray analyzer (EDS) and software-controlled digital scan to quickly locate, size and characterize large numbers of individual particles and group them based on their elemental composition and shape. A primary use for this technique is in the automated analysis of gun shot residue (GSR) particles. This technique can be customized based on the application needed.

Automated Steel Cleanliness Analysis Tool (ASCAT)

This technique is based on CCSEM and is primarily used as a quality control tool for characterizing inclusions in steel that have been trapped during the solidification process. The automated analysis quickly identifies and characterizes the steel inclusions but can also be customized based on the application needed.
