Aminpro Add-in

The Aminpro Add-in for Microsoft Excel™ was developed for internal use in Aminpro, in order to facilitate our work. Now, we are offering this tool for free to the public for non-commercial use.

The Add-in has several functions and equations that are useful for the analysis of metallurgical data. For more information, please download our user manual.
