Measure fiber characteristics such as size, width, and other ISO shape image parameters for fibers large and small
FibreShape is a shape image processing software platform for the quantitative shape and size characterization of fibers large and small.
FibreShape uses static image processing analysis to measure and characterize the captured shape images and sizes of fibers in both dry and wet state.
FibreShape works with microscope images, scanning electron microscopes (SEM) images, and other standard light. It is however optimized for scanner based imaging.
This combination allows you to efficiently and quickly capture significantly larger areas than traditional microscopes.
To put this in better context.
The average area examined in a microscope is about 0.25 square centimeters.
With the FiberShape platform you can capture an area up to 1600 times greater.
The FibreShape Scanner platform allows you to analyze many thousands of fibers accurately and effortlessly in a matter of minutes.
Compared to traditional techniques this adds statistically significance to your results.
FibreShape special algorithm can also accurately analyze crossed fibers.
FibreShape conforms to all relevant ISO standards.
With the smart and powerful algorithm of FibreShape at your fingertips all captured images get processed in seconds to minutes.
In addition you can customize all analysis parameters to fit any application.
Unlike traditional optical systems there are no focus or field-of-depth control issues. All captured images have a consistent and constant resolution across the entire capture area.
Just place the analysis tray into the scanner, press start, and you are off to the races.
The system is designed to be portable and plug-and-play.
All these benefits make FibreShape an easy, fast, and cost-effective fiber characterization tool.
FiberShape was developed by Dr. H Schmid at IST AG in Switzerland and is part of the X-Shape quantitative image analysis platform.
The X-Shape platform allows for the shape characterizations of fibers, powders, and diamonds. It consists of four products: DiaShape, FibreShape, PowderShape, and FibreScanner.
