Dilato


L78 RITA Quenching & Deformation Dilatometer


The Quenching/Deformation Dilatometer L78 RITA is especially suitable for the determination of TTT, CHT and CCT diagrams. The instrument can perform measurements under vacuum, inert, oxidized, reduced atmospheres.


SmartLab X-ray diffractometer

The SmartLab is the most novel high-resolution X-ray diffractometer available today. SmartLab employs a new rotating anode X-ray generator that is specifically optimized for the optics and geometries, allowing SmartLab to achieve three times higher intensity than current products (shared from ME Department).
