Metallurgical microscope MAGUS Metal 600 is designed for studying opaque samples (metals, alloys, paint coatings, semiconductor and other materials) in reflected light using brightfield and polarization microscopy techniques. You can study the microstructures on flat and polished samples. The transmitted light illuminator also makes it possible to examine the particles trapped on filters and translucent materials (like thin films) under the microscope. The microscope is suitable for the research and analysis conducted by geologists, metallurgists, engineers, archaeologists, and specialists in other fields of science.


The trinocular head is equipped with a trinocular tube for camera mounting (not included). The light beam can be split in two positions: 100:0 or 0:100, which means you can direct the light beam to either the digital camera or the eyepiece tube. The trinocular head is 30° inclined, which is convenient for long observations. There is a diopter adjustment ring on the left tube.

In the basic configuration, the microscope magnification ranges from 50x to 600x. In order to increase the upper magnification limit, you can mount additional eyepieces. The revolving nosepiece with objectives is oriented toward the interior. Five objectives can be mounted at the same time – four of them are included in the kit and one slot is free for installing an additional one. The microscope uses plan achromatic objectives with a long working distance suitable for brightfield microscopy.


The microscope is equipped with transmitted and reflected light illumination systems. Both use 30W brightness-adjustable halogen bulbs powered by an AC power supply. Halogen bulbs emit light with a color temperature that allows for comfortable work.

The microscope is equipped with polarization devices for reflected light observations: built-in analyzer and removable polarizer. The aperture and field diaphragms make it possible to set up the Köhler illumination, and there are also color filters included in the kit. The apertures and the reflected light source can be centered.

The transmitted light illumination system uses a traditional Abbe condenser, the position of which can be adjusted in two ways: centered and adjusted in height. It is complemented by a flip-up lens for use with low magnification objectives. There are aperture and field diaphragms, i.e., you can use the Köhler illumination method.

Stage and focusing mechanism

The maximum height of the specimen that can be put on the stage is 20mm. The specimen is moved by moving the stage along the two axes. It is complemented by a glass plate that is used for working with opaque specimens.

Coarse and fine focusing mechanisms are used for focus adjustment. Focusing is smooth and precise. The coarse focusing has a lock knob and tension adjustment. The focusing knobs are coaxially positioned on both sides so that you do not have to hold your hands in the air while working; instead, you can place them on the table.


The MAGUS Metal 600 microscope can be further equipped with additional eyepieces, long working distance objectives, digital cameras, and calibration slides.
