MELO, Dulce V y ARAGON, José A. Low Cost System for Teaching and on Field Metallographic Studies. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2007, vol.18, n.4, pp. 3-8. ISSN 0718-0764. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642007000400002.
A low cost system for teaching and on field metallographic studies has been developed. It was first established that the system could be obtained by the adaptation of several cheap commercial components or by designing and constructing its parts. Its objective was its use in the observation, edition and digital storage of samples images in the site of preparation. The system consists of two parts: a microscope and portable computer. Its utility in education was verified and by its characteristics, it will facilitate on field work. Its cost is 80 dollars, plus the cost of portable computer, a very low value when compared with the cost of fine optic microscopes.
