and LAN capability
Image FLO general purpose
image processing, enhancement and analysis can
work off-line and on a LAN. All the customized
modules work on line and deliver the report along
with images, tables and graphs for the particular
task in a matter of minutes.
The report generation is coded into the software
and is automatic and therefore extremely fast.
|Most of the work is done on-line.
I.e. the specimen is polished, scanned and image
analysis is performed for the report to be generated.
Rarely is it necessary for images to be captured
and then later analysed.
This adds the overhead of saving and opening the
images and combining the data into a report manually.
image and calculation resolution
||Image FLO general purpose package
accepts images with 8 and 24 bit resolution. All
calculations are with 32 bit precision
||Higher precision consumes processor
cycles and memory. Intel PC architecture is only
32 bit. You need an additional processor card for
performing 64 bit calculations or a third party
library which will slow down the calculations immensely.
This high precision is not required as even the
first moon landing was performed with 12 bit precision!
software dedicated only for metallurgy and what
are its features
Dedicated only for metallography
and the generation of user predefined customised
report formats. All functions are performed on
the images in sequence to get the result as per
relevant ASTM/ DIN/ BIS/ IS / JIS standards. No
manual reporting is required and this makes the
software very user friendly for the metallurgist.
Macro Photography of Macro Etched specimens
for Failure Analysis
Grain Size as per ASTM E 1382 / 112 (Intercept
and Area Methods ), Inclusion Analysis software
as per ASTM E 45 Method A/ 1245 / 1122, Volume
Fraction as per ASTM 562,
Banding and orientation of microstructures as
per ASTM 1268, Graphite (gray and nodular ) analysis
as per ASTM A 247, Decarb Depth, Plating thickness
Also user required analysis if it is not there
already in our list.
All software has stage automation modules built
|Packages which are general purpose
will have to be configured by the metallurgist.
Thirequires a knowledge of image processing and
analysis. All functions will have to be implemented
in a macro form which is like a programming language
like BASIC and then debugged before results are
obtained. The raw data that is obtained has then
to be interpreted in terms of the ASTM or relevant
standards. Complicated analysis and report generation
like inclusion rating as per ASTM E 45 / 1245 cannot
be undertaken. Thereby undermining the utility of
the Image Analyser. Ð
and Software support
Free telephonic, e-mail
and fax support is given for three years irrespective
of service contract. We have installations in
Northern, Western and South India (see user list)
We have successfully supported our installations
for the last four years. We are based in Pune
and we have our team of software engineers and
developers who can suggest quick solutions to
image analysis problems.
We also keep an inventory of cameras and frame
grabber cards (which are also required for giving
live demonstrations and R&D) which can be
quickly shipped and installed in your laboratory
