The heating microscope allows to “visually” follow what occurs to the specimens subjected to heat treatment. In this way, it is possible to achieve information about: melting of the material (softening temperature, hemisphere temperature and sphere temperature).
It allows to set up thermal cycles up to 1600 °C, in static air, with max gradient of 80 °C/min. Thus, it is possible to set both slow thermal cycles and fast thermal cycles, that better simulate an industrial cycle.
It allows to visualize the sintering process of the sample with a series of frames that, at the end, allow to reconstruct the test as a movie composed of all the images selected by the operator.
