PI sunset
THE WORLD OF SMALL PARTICLES
A measurement challenge


process flowchart

Real-world particles are rarely spherical. Those particle shapes impact behavior in manufacturing processes and performance in the end-user product. A single size number or distribution is not a sufficient predictor of behavior.    more...

THE PARTICLE INSIGHT SOLUTION
Powerful image analysis hardware and software


process flowchart

Particle Insight defines six shape models that cover most particle types. Several measures such as width, length and aspect ratio are defined within each shape model. The Circle model also defines circularity and surface smoothness.     more...
