Inspection Station

December 30, 2008


The Luxxor video microscope is an inspection station that allows operators to attach either a microscope lens or a borescope to its mount. The microscope attachment has an f/4.5 zoom lens for viewing the exterior of any metal-machined part, casting or welded part, with magnification ranges from 15X to 83X. A change to the borescope attachment (not included) allows for internal inspection. Key applications include those found in manufacturing automotive, aerospace and medical parts. Operators also can capture video or still images with included computer software; document inspection images; store and e-mail documented images to quality teams and suppliers; measure defects or features accurately with a metrology capability; and adjust exposure and contrast levels.
