(PRWEB UK) 8 July 2013
Spectrographic Limited, a leading supplier to the material science industry, has announced an exciting new programme of seminars for Autumn 2013. The seminars are being run in association with Mitutoyo, the internationally renowned manufacturer of precision measuring equipment. A range of new and innovative products and applications will be presented to individuals and organisation working in the material science industry.
The first seminar, which is scheduled for October 2013, will showcase a brand new micro hardness testing machine developed by Mitutoyo.
Paul Chippendale, Managing Director of Spectrographic, commented: “Spectrographic’s programme of seminars is due to start in Autumn 2013. Our aim is to introduce a different and interesting perspective on metallurgical products and applications. We want delegates to enjoy their day and feel it has been a positive experience.”
“The first seminar will showcase Mitutoyo’s new fully-automatic micro hardness testing system, which we anticipate will be very popular with users across the industry.”
The 2013 automatic micro hardness tester HM-211 / 221 (Series 810), which is to be presented at the first seminar, is equipped with a new software interface. This allows operators a faster set up of complex indentation patterns, and includes a new macro montage, as well as auto focus features.
Material scientists from across the UK and Europe are being invited to attend the seminars, which are being held at various locations nationwide including Andover, Halifax, Coventry and East Kilbride. Places are limited and customers are advised to book early.
Each seminar will include a presentation by a product specialist, and will look at testing applications. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss showcased products in detail and to seek advice on the day.
Seminar topics will include automatic micro hardness testers, UCI portable hardness systems, testing equipment, preparation equipment and microscope systems.
