Innovative inspection, metrology, and digital 3D visualisation solutions provider, Vision Engineering, recently announced the launch of Mantis 3rd Gen, the latest addition to its best-selling and award-winning range of ergonomic optical stereo microscopes.
Mantis is in use in tens of thousands of R&D, manufacturing and analytical sites around the world. Mantis 3rd Gen incorporates the latest developments in optics, digital cameras and fully adjustable LED lighting, to keep it at the forefront of stereo imaging.
Mantis is perfect for electronics quality inspection and rework, plus a wide range of other applications that require high-quality images and superior ergonomics. It features a unique, patented, eyepiece-less design that delivers a large, high-quality optical stereo image directly into the user’s eyes, making it more comfortable and easier to view than traditional microscopes.
Manipulative, rework and restoration tasks need stereo images to allow easy hand-to-eye coordination and depth perception. Mantis 3rd Gen combines stereo optical images with high-resolution camera options for manipulation and recording.
Mantis 3rd Gen features long working distance and excellent depth perception, now with a choice of three magnifications, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. It also now comes as standard with five different ways to illuminate a subject, giving the flexibility to adjust the lighting to get the perfect image.
In addition to its outstanding image quality and ergonomics, Mantis also features a powerful digital imaging system that allows users to capture, review, and share high-resolution images. This makes it easy to share work with colleagues, document findings, and train new employees.
Substantial R&D has resulted in a new range of stand options to allow flexibility, stability and reduced footprint.
