Revolutionising Scientific Inspection with Light Tables

Crucial In Testing And Research

Light boxes have long been an indispensable tool in scientific testing and research, providing a crucial source of illumination for a variety of applications. In recent years, advancements in LED technology and light box design have made it possible to use light boxes in even more sophisticated ways, helping researchers to gain new insights and make groundbreaking discoveries.

One of the key areas in which light boxes are used is in the testing and identification of plastics through polarised films. Polarised films are widely used in scientific research to identify the type of plastic that is being tested. This is accomplished by illuminating the plastic with light from a light box and observing the way that the light is transmitted through the film.

In addition to the testing and identification of plastics, light boxes are also used in the measurement of absorption for materials. This is a crucial step in understanding the properties of materials, and light boxes are an essential tool in this process. By illuminating the material with light from a light box, researchers can measure the amount of light that is absorbed by the material and determine its properties.

Finally, light boxes are also used as back-lighting for imaging equipment. This is particularly useful in scientific research, where high-quality images are essential for accurate results. By illuminating the specimen from behind, researchers can take images that are free from shadows and other sources of distortion, helping to ensure that their results are as accurate as possible.

All of these applications demonstrate the versatility and importance of light boxes in scientific testing. Whether used for the testing of plastics, the measurement of absorption, or as back-lighting for imaging equipment, light boxes are a crucial tool that helps researchers to make new discoveries and advance their fields.

At Orchard, we understand the importance of accurate scientific testing and that's why we offer a range of high-quality light boxes and light tables to meet the needs of researchers in a variety of fields. Our light boxes are made from durable stainless steel and are designed to provide accurate, consistent illumination for a range of scientific testing applications. Additionally, our light boxes are fitted with high-frequency dimmers and LED lighting, helping to reduce eye strain and ensure accurate results. Whether you are working in materials science, food quality control, or the medical industry, we have the perfect light box for your needs.

Testing and Identification of Plastics with Polarised Films

The science of testing and identification of materials has come a long way in recent times. With the advent of advanced technology, the quality control process for a variety of products including plastics has become more precise and accurate. As a result, the use of light boxes in the scientific testing process has become an integral part of many laboratory environments. At Orchard, our Beam brand offers a range of high-quality light boxes and light tables that are perfect for scientific testing and analysis.

One of the key ways that our light boxes are used in scientific testing is through the use of polarised films. These films are used in conjunction with our light boxes to help identify the properties of different types of plastics. The polarised film works by allowing light to pass through it at different angles, which can help to highlight any flaws or defects in the material. When combined with our high-quality light boxes, this process becomes even more effective, providing detailed and accurate information about the material being tested.

In addition to these uses, our light boxes are also used as back-lighting for imaging equipment. This is particularly useful for testing materials for absorption, as the back-lighting helps to provide clear and detailed images of the material being tested. This, in turn, helps scientists to make more accurate and precise measurements, leading to a better understanding of the material and its properties.

At Orchard, we understand the importance of high-quality lighting in the scientific testing process. That's why we have invested in developing our Beam brand of light boxes and light tables. With features like LED lighting and high-frequency dimmers, our light boxes are designed to meet the demanding needs of laboratory environments. And with features like stainless steel construction and IP rating, our light boxes are not only effective but also hygienic and easy to clean, making them perfect for use in food-grade and medical-grade environments.

Another important use of our light boxes in scientific testing is in the measurement of absorption for materials. This process involves shining light through the material and measuring how much of the light is absorbed. This information is then used to determine the properties of the material, including its transparency and refractive index. With our high-quality light boxes and light tables, this process becomes much more precise and accurate, providing scientists with the information they need to make informed decisions about the materials they are testing.

Measurement of Absorption for Materials

Scientific testing is a crucial part of research and development in many industries. In order to accurately measure and analyse the properties of materials, it is essential to have the right equipment and techniques. Light boxes and light tables are one such tool that can be used to enhance the accuracy of tests and measurements.

At Orchard, we manufacture high-quality light boxes and light tables under the brand name Beam. Our light boxes are specifically designed for scientific testing and are suitable for a range of applications. In this article, we will focus on how our light boxes and light tables can be used in the testing and identification of plastics through polarised films, as well as for measuring the absorption of materials.

Polarised films are widely used in scientific testing as they can help to highlight the properties of materials, including their structure, composition and refractive index. When used in conjunction with a light box, the polarised film can be illuminated from behind, making it easier to observe and measure the properties of the material being tested. This is particularly useful in the testing of plastics as it can help to identify their composition and structure.

In addition to testing plastics, our light boxes are also used for measuring the absorption of materials. By illuminating the material from behind with a light box, it is possible to observe and measure the degree of absorption, which can be useful for understanding the properties of the material. Our light boxes are fitted with high-frequency dimmers, which helps to reduce eye strain, making it easier to carry out tests and measurements over extended periods of time.

Finally, our light boxes can also be used as back-lighting for imaging equipment. This is particularly useful when testing the absorption of materials as the back-lighting can help to highlight the degree of absorption, making it easier to observe and measure.
