FINE-DETAIL DIGITAL MICROSCOPE
The MIC-D digital microscope system for fine detail inspection
utilizes USB technology to produce a live image viewable on
a computer monitor. The MIC-D uses an inverted lens design
so that structures of variable size and shape can be viewed
with little preparation, while an internalized zoom lens system
with magnification up to 270X eliminates the need for several
fixed magnification objectives. By simply rotating the LED
lamp arm, one can illuminate opaque objects in reflected light,
oblique, and transmitted light settings. Because the image
is viewed on a monitor rather than conventional eyepieces,
the MIC-D facilitates simultaneous viewing by multiple persons-and
since the images are digital, processing is made quicker.

LASER SCAN MICROMETER
A scanning speed of 226 m/s is one drawing factor of the Desktop
Laser Scan Micrometer, which allows inspection of small, high-temperature,
or fragile workpieces-even during motion or vibration. This
device also measures transparent objects. Measuring range
is from 0.5mm to 60mm, with selectable resolution from 50nm
to 0.1mm and repeatability of 0.6 microns. Two items may be
measured simultaneously, and measurement conditions can be
set and later recalled to accommodate different workpiece
shapes, maximum and minimum values, and sample measurement.
