Vision Engineering announces the launch of Mantis 3rd Gen of its best-selling and award-winning Mantis range of ergonomic optical stereo microscopes.

The new Mantis generation range (PIXO, ERGO, and IOTA), incorporates Vision Engineering’s renowned patented ergonomic technology along with the latest developments in optics, digital cameras, and fully adjustable LED lighting, keeping Mantis at the forefront of stereo imaging.

New features include; improved optics for both hand-to-eye coordination and excellent depth perception, a 3-position turret to house up to 3 objectives ranging from 3x to 15x, the introduction of an 8x super long working distance lens, five different illumination options providing flexibility to optimize the lighting to view the perfect image, and the Mantis PIXO offers an improved, higher resolution camera for image and video capture. The system also features an option to switch between white light and UV light using a toggle switch. 

Mantis PIXO, Mantis ERGO, and Mantis IOTA feature the revered long working distances associated with Mantis which are needed for soldering, rework, and manipulative tasks when tools are required. The new systems are designed with Vision Engineering’s unique eyepiece-less technology that delivers a large, high-quality optical stereo image, making it more comfortable and easier to view than traditional microscopes. Like the generations before, Mantis 3rd Gen is manufactured in the U.S.A.

The Mantis 3rd Gen comes with a range of new stand options and accessories to allow for greater flexibility, stability, and a reduced footprint on the workstation.

Mantis is designed for precision engineering, electronic engineering, medical device manufacture, and a wide range of other applications that require high-quality images and superior ergonomics. Mantis is used in tens of thousands of R&D, manufacturing, and analytical sites around the world.

Mantis 3rd Gen is now available for purchase directly from Vision Engineering or through a network of authorized distributors.
