Concrete Petrographic Analysis Positioning Systems
|The goal of this metrologic application is to quantify voids in samples viewed through a microscope.
We supply 2 axis positioning systems for concrete air entrainment analysis.
|Some systems are motor driven and some are both maual and motor driven. Here are some examples.
Hardware: Stages, motors, encoders and controllers
Example 1: This simple system has a single motor drive stage and manual cross slide. Here is an itemized list of components.
Example 2: A two axis motor driven system. VXM controller not shown.
A simplified point count software, PetSoft2 tool
works with our VXM step motor controller. We do not support this software.
More refined third party softwre which comply with ASTM C 457 in both the execution of the traverse and computation of the results, are available.
