Spectrographic Limited, a leading supplier to the material science industry, has announced an exciting new programme of seminars commencing in autumn 2013.
The seminars, which promise to showcase a range of new and innovative products and applications for material science, are being run in association with Mitutoyo, the internationally renowned manufacturer of precision measuring equipment.
The first seminar is being held on Wednesday 23 October 2013 at Mitutoyo’s Halifax Showroom at Lowfields Business Park in Elland. The one-day event will showcase a brand new automatic micro hardness testing machine – the Autovick Hardness Tester (HM-200 Series System D), which has been developed by Mitutoyo.
Paul Chippendale, Managing Director of Spectrographic, is really about excited about the new series of seminars, he commented: “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.”
“We have worked with Mitutoyo for over ten years now, and we are delighted to have formed a partnership with them to run these seminars. The first seminar will showcase Mitutoyo’s new fully-automatic micro hardness testing system, which we consider will be very popular with users across many fields of industry.”
Mitutoyo’s automatic micro hardness tester is equipped with a new software interface – which 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 including Andover, Halifax, Coventry and East Kilbride. Seminars are free to attend, but places are limited, so it’s advisable 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. Presentation topics will include automatic micro hardness testers, UCI portable hardness systems, testing equipment, preparation equipment and microscope systems.
