Carpet under the Microscope

Microscope World has a customer that manufacturers plush carpet. During the manufacturing process, they use the MW5-LD2 digital stereo microscope to examine the carpet fibers. Below are the carpet images captured with the digital stereo zoom microscope. The customer uses the included microscope software to capture and save the images, making it easy to email the photos both inter-office as well as within manufacturing facilities. The included microscope software also has a measuring feature that is often used to measure carpet fibers and the space between the weave of the carpet fiber. Notes are often made directly on the captured microscope photos before they are emailed or saved to a file - this ensures that valuable data is not lost or confused.
