Vision Engineering, a world-leading provider of innovative inspection, metrology, and digital 3D visualisation solutions, has announced the launch of Mantis 3rd Gen, the latest addition to its best-selling and award-winning range of ergonomic optical stereo microscopes. Mantis is in use in tens of thousands of R&D, manufacturing and analytical sites around the world. Mantis 3rd Gen incorporates the latest developments in optics, digital cameras and fully adjustable LED lighting, to keep Mantis at the forefront of stereo imaging.
The new Mantis generation range (PIXO, ERGO, and IOTA), incorporates Vision Engineering’s renowned patented ergonomic technology keeping Mantis at the forefront of stereo imaging. 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. The unique, eyepiece-less design delivers a large, high-quality optical stereo image directly into the user’s eyes, making it more comfortable and easier to view than traditional microscopes.
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.
Manipulative, rework and restoration tasks need stereo images, to allow easy hand to eye coordination and depth perception. Mantis 3rd Gen combines stereo optical images, with high resolution camera options for manipulation and recording.
In addition to its outstanding image quality and ergonomics, Mantis also features a powerful digital imaging system that allows users to capture, review, and share high-resolution images. This makes it easy to share work with colleagues, document findings, and train new employees.
Substantial R&D has resulted in a new range of stand options, to allow flexibility, stability and reduced footprint.
“As our customers have told us for the last 28 years, Mantis is an ideal solution for anyone who needs to perform precise work with small objects,” said Mark Curtis, Managing Director at Vision Engineering. “We invest substantial R&D time and effort in exploiting the opportunities that fast moving optic, digital and lighting technologies offer our dedicated customer base. Mantis 3rd Gen offers the best of both worlds: superior ergonomics and optical image quality, combined with the latest digital imaging technology.”
