Car manufacturers use microscopes quite a bit to examine parts before assembling the entire automobile. Any sort of industry that needs to apply a coating or varnish will often use a microscope to examine the coating thickness.
These images of treated wood were sent to Microscope World to examine how deep the varnish penetrated the wood. The samples were placed under a stereo microscope and images were captured using a microscope digital camera. The software included with the camera was then used to make measurements to determine if varnish was being wasted, or if the right amount was being applied.
