Microstructure Monitor

Determination of material properties for Hot Strip and Plate Mills

Microstructure Monitor
  • Determination of the mechanical properties: yield and tensile strength, elongation to fracture A80
  • Determination of microstructure: recrystallized fraction, austenite and ferrite grain size, ferrite/pearlite/bainite portion
  • Analysis tool supports production and quality engineers, by determining dependencies of material properties regarding chemical analysis and process parameters
  • Integrated planning tool allows for offline computer simulations and determination of the best working conditions concerning steel properties
  • No necessity of costly tests - saving material and costs
