Porosity Analysis in aluminum

One aluminum sample is submitted for image analysis. Vision PE is used to determine the area of the pores and porosity percentage of the sample.

The area and area percentage of pores in submitted aluminum alloy are measured. Automated statistics and graph are generated and cumulated during the analysis of the sample. Final results can be printed directly from Clemex Vision. Raw data are linked to their respective objects for validation purpose. Raw data can also be exported in Excel format.
