The IM-7000 Series inverted metallurgical microscopes have a slim wedge shaped design that saves bench space and offers excellent stability. All of the IM-7000 Series controls are ergonomically positioned to provide comfort and extended ease of use for the operator.

An integrated6V/30W vertical Koehler halogen illuminator with a variable intensity control and automatic voltage sensing power supply provides excellent specimen illumination and contrast. The IM7000 Series is designed to meet your most diverse needs for materials research.

IM Series is well suited for examination of mounted metallurgical specimens or for routine quality inspections such as, microstructure analysis, various material testing, QA and QC examination and photomicrography.

The IM-7000 Series Microscopes offer crisp, distortion-free, high resolution images in multiple modes of operation and the built-in photo port on the front of the body makes image documentation quick and easy.

Contrast methods available include: Brightfield and Polarized Light observation modes.
