Quality issues affect all industries and can be a major headache if not caught before reaching the consumer. Although defects are often caught long before they reach the hands of consumers, they can cause major delays and even costly shutdowns. Many times, a magnified visual inspection can provide significant details to help sort out a potential defects. However, this alone is not a fool-proof solution.
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) has long been used as an informative in unknown material identification. Modern FTIR accessories combine visual imaging with chemical analysis to rapidly characterize and identify visual defects.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to FTIR and FTIR microsampling using affordable plug-and-play solutions that any industry can benefit from. Throughout the session, we will explore how to best approach visual defect identification using FTIR spectroscopy, and how the technique fits into your visual defect analysis toolkit. This session will offer a great introduction to the Czitek SurveyIR FTIR Microsampling accessory.
Key webinar takeaways:
- Characterizing and identifying visual defects using FTIR and visual images
- Choosing the best method of FTIR analysis for various visual defects
- Understanding the cost and benefit provided by FTIR with visual imaging
The SurveyIR FTIR Microanalysis Accessory is an exciting new accessory that offers ease-of-use features at an affordable price. It combines superior visual clarity and unique illumination options with simple camera controls. This allows the sample to be found quickly with precision, and enables the collection of the infrared spectrum of the exact spot to identify it accurately. The SurveyIR can upgrade nearly any FTIR to create a solution for defect or failure analysis, art conservation, archeology or forensic analysis problems. The system is compact and easy to install, which makes it ideal for use in the lab or in the field. Unique features, including oblique illumination and view through ATR bring together the optimum visual quality with confidence in the chemical identification, making the SurveyIR an invaluable tool
