Automated multispectral Imaging

An automated microscope with filterwheel allows registration and mosaicing of multispectral images of polished sections.

The main output is the modal analysis of the phases in the sample.

3D Size and Shape analysis by laser triangulation

LaserSieve is a 3D laser scanner that provides the size and the morphology of bulk rock fragments scrolling on a conveyor belt in harsh industrial environments such as quarries or mines. It improves the continuous production process providing these measures in real real-time.
Range : 1- 500 mm

Milli LaserSieve is a smaller version dedicated to laboratories.
Range : 0.1-50 mm
