Metallurgical microscopes are sometimes referred to as materials microscopes and are available as an upright metallurgical microscope or an inverted metallurgical microscope or on a boom stand for viewing extra-large samples. Upright metallurgical microscopes are used to view samples that will fit on the microscope stage. An inverted metallurgical microscope would be used to view larger parts, as the objective lenses are located beneath the stage and allow for placing heavy mechanical parts directly on the stage above the objectives.
