FibreShape Scanners

In order to obtain the images of the fibers the FibreShape systems relie on scanners and digital microscopes with transmissive light units. The use of scanners is crucial for success. They enable the characterization of advanced geometrical properties but at the same time support specimen of large sizes and the measurement of many specimen in a single batch. Microscopes are employed when a higher resolution is required such as for the width measurement in the range of microns.
