Inspecting micro-sized components has never been faster or more efficient! The NEW NEXIV VMZ-S3020 video measuring system, from Nikon Metrology, allows operators to achieve incredible measurement accuracy on small components such as semiconductors, high-tolerance machined parts, and medical devices.
As the immediate threat of Covid-19 subsides, companies are creating plans for introducing safe working practices. When it comes to sharing equipment, especially microscopes, there are concerns regarding cross-contamination and effective cleaning because most of the time an operator’s eyes come in direct contact with microscope eyepieces.
If you’ve ever worked in a lab, you know an optical microscope uses an eyepiece and objective to magnify a small object. But as technology continues to advance, digital microscopes are becoming more popular.
Zarbeco, LLC announces the MiScope Megapixel MP3, the newest addition to the popular MiScope line of portable digital microscopes. The palm-sized USB3 microscope with 10 – 180x magnification features resolution to 1.7 microns, 3.4 megapixels, up to 60 frames per second and optional UV/IR multispectral imaging.
Titan Tool Supply, Inc. announced the introduction of its new model ZDM-3 vertical displacement microscope to measure minute variations in height. The Z-Axis electronic depth measuring microscope features a built-in LED co-axial illuminator to allow the user to focus on the top or bottom of the part being inspected.
Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink. It’s a famous line from “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” uttered by a more-than-thirsty sailor on a ship bereft of fresh water as he is forced to stare at an ocean of sea water he cannot use to satiate his need.
In the early 17th century, Galileo Galilei discovered that he could focus his telescope to examine small objects up close. Around 1620, it is believed that Cornelius Drebbel invented the compound microscope. In the 1670s, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek began experimenting with very high-magnification, single-lensed microscopes that he designed himself.
