Microscopy Software iWorks Series Updated

July 22, 2015, Guangzhou

We are pleased to announce that a new update is now available for microscopy software iWorks 2.0 series. The update includes a range of usability improvements and general enhancements for the software.

Compatibility Enhanced: From digital cameras to hardness testers

You might have experience of using Nikon DS series microscope camera with iWorks. Are you using IDS or Basler camera for your research? With this latest update comes new support for iWorks, you can now capture, measure and analyze by connecting IDS or Basler camera to iWorks software! In this update, We also add Hamamatsu InGaAs-C10633, Nikon DS-Ri2 and Vieworks GigE cameras.

For iWorks H series hardness testing software, we increase new models of Wilson and Mitutoyo. Check below models of hardness tester compatible with iWorks.

New Standard Employed

For Cast Iron Analysis, we added SPS-KFCA-D4302-5016(KS D 4302 replacing standard). 

We also added new standards for Non-metallic Inclusions Rating: ASTM E 45-05e3 Method A, ASTM E 45-05e3 Method D, ASTM E 45-13 Method A, ASTM E 45-13 Method D, ISO 4967: 2013 (E) Method A, and ISO 4967: 2013 (E) Method B

New Function, New Layout

Overlay chart enhancements - rectangular area Chart correction information correcting errors when changing applications.


iWorks software already handles many types of overlay chart, and now if you’re using iWorks you can enjoy the new float easy-to-use buttons of overlay chart. In this update, we add overlay function to iWorks LT. That means, all iWorks I series microscopy software except iWorks EX has overlay function. Note that different version software has different types of overlay chart. learn more.

Other Improvement and Adjustment


  • Improve settings of particle analysis, phase analysis, cast iron analysis, particle size analysis, non-metallic inclusions rating,  and the volume fraction.

  • Grain Chart - Grain Size 10.5 ~ 14.0 is Added.

  • We adjusted and optimized functions list for different versions of iWorks software. We made new iWorks FC as standard version especially for the users of Cast Iron Analysis. The previous "iWorks FC" for customization is discontinued.


If you’re an existing iWorks software user, you’ll be able to use the new updated version with the new installation. The free iWorks 2.0 software update is released, email to info@lanoptik.com for the new installation.
