Struers recently released its "Metalog Guide" on CD-ROM. This free tool was developed to help metallographers with the preparation of metallographic samples. It contains interactive graphs and charts, full motion video, universal preparation procedures and an expert section. The ability to properly prepare and interpret microstructures of materials is invaluable in quality control, controlling production processes, material research, the development of new materials, and failure analysis. The CD presents theory and how-to information on metallographic preparation procedures for most industrial metals and alloys.
