Lieca DM6 M Microscope

In applications such as steel inclusion rating, particle analysis, phase, or grain analysis, reproducibility matters. You can rely on the Leica DM4 M and Leica DM6 M microscope systems to provide reproducible results

Save valuable time: With the Illumination Manager and Contrast Manager, the microscope automatically recognizes the selected contrast technique and objective in use, accurately opens and closes the aperture and field diaphragms, and adapts the light intensity.

Share and compare your results – anytime and anywhere! Store and recall your microscope settings and camera parameters with the Leica Microscope Assistant (Leica LAS Store and Recall Module). They are saved and archived with the images, and can be restored at any time.

  • The Leica DM4 M and Leica DM6 M are the Industrial Microscopes for you, whether microscopy novice or professional.
  • Leica DM6 M for fully automated materials analysis
  • Recall previous microscope settings and instantly reproduce imaging parameters with the unique Store and Recall software functions
  • One-button Intelligent Automation makes repetitive work easy
  • Reduce training time, improve your workflow, and get brilliant imaging results every time with the microscopes
