Olympus STM6 Series of Microscopes

For Quick Inspection of Larger Samples

The new Olympus STM6 microscope series has been specifically designed for a wide range of industrial inspection and measurement applications.

The series features a variety of models that cover increasing user demand for new measuring capabilities and offer more system versatility and higher performance. The STM6-LM is used for the quick inspection of larger samples, and the STM6 offers the most compact microscope in its class with exceptional levels of precision and durability for today's broad research and industrial environments.

The Olympus STM6 series has been designed to perform the most demanding measuring and inspection tasks relative to industrial parts and electrical components. Both the STM6-LM and STM6 models offer outstanding features with motorized focusing-a world first-highly advanced UIS2 (Universal Infinity System) infinity-corrected optics and a high-rigid body with integrated counters.

Motorized focusing has been introduced to the STM6 series for quick and precise Z-axis measurement. This dramatically improves operation in both focusing and the measurement of height and depth, and is equipped as a standard feature. The Z-axis control box, which is conveniently located by the operator's hand, allows both coarse and fine focusing movements to be carried out. In addition, the auto focusing unit makes it possible to obtain stable measurement results by minimizing the dispersion caused by different operators.

The space-saving body of the STM6 series is the smallest in size in this class of measuring microscopes despite its numerous versatile functions. The highly rigid frame and measuring stage offer solid stability over long periods of operation in manufacturing environments. The stages are embedded with glass scales for reliable and accurate measurements, and are available in three different types: 50mm x 50mm, 100mm x 50mm and 100mm x 100mm to accommodate various sizes of samples.
