NEW Lynx EVO eyepiece-less stereo microscope unlocks the power of productivity

After much anticipation, Kaisertech are pleased to announce the launch of Vision Engineering's Lynx EVO, a new high productivity eyepiece-less stereo microscope.

Building on the strengths of its market-leading predecessor, Lynx EVO eliminates the difficulty and strains of using ‘eyepiece’ stereo microscopes, opening up a world of enhanced productivity and ease of use.

Although the eyepiece-less advantage of Lynx EVO stems from stunning 3D (stereo) imaging, the real brilliance of the patented design is the simplicity of operation.Superior imaging combined with unrivalled ergonomics promotes simple hand-eye co-ordination, critical for precision inspection tasks, re-work, repair and other manipulation activities. Operators can maintain the highest levels of performance, even across an entire shift.

Benefitting from a high optical specification, the 10:1 zoom ratio with long working distances provides users the ability to inspect up to 120x magnification (6x – 60x standard), ideal for a wide range of applications.

Lynx EVO is available in a range of configurations, designed for use in different environments, from laboratories and medical device clean rooms, through to production, or manufacturing inspection. Accessories include HD image capture, plus an exceptional 360° rotating viewer.

Exceptional Full HD Digital Inspection with the VisionZ2 from Vision Engineering

Utilising the power of full-HD (1080p) digital imaging, Vision Engineering’s new VisionZ2 video inspection system provides ultimate optical performance in a high quality, compact design – now including integral image capture via USB, so there is no need for a separate PC.

Suitable for production environments, VisionZ2 was designed to be simple to operate, with superior optical performance delivering perfect inspection results, time after time.

Perfect imaging requires not only an exceptional high performance full HD (1080p) camera, but also a ‘live’ image for easy hand-eye co-ordination. VisionZ2's image rate of up to 60 fps (frames per second) provides ultimate optical performance, far superior to most television images (which have an image rate of 25 fps), making detailed inspection and manipulation easy.

With an extremely large field of view, zoom magnification options up to 122x and a range of configurations, VisionZ2 is the professional choice for a very wide range of precision magnification tasks including: production areas, R&D, laboratory, micro assembly, electronics, micro mechanics, automotive, dental technology, medical device, forensics, quality control tasks, presentation and training.

Mantis Stereo Magnifier, ideal for electronics PCB inspection and rework!

In the intricate task of PCB manufacturing, reliable inspection and measurement of different connections, vias and clearances is paramount during and after production. Microscopes are utilized in PCB inspections to enable users to improve quality and increase output.

The Mantis inspection microscope is used in FAI (First Article Inspection), which is a requirement to ensure that the first product produced is 100% correct. In our industry, we need to ensure that the first off from the SMT assembly line is perfect before running the rest of the batch.

Mantis is a stereo microscope ideal for electronics PCB inspection and rework. The patented optical viewing head of Mantis provides unrivalled 3D images, plus significant ergonomic advantages, where fatigue and eye strain associated with working under magnification are eliminated.

Extra-long working distances are a considerable advantage where engineers can solder under magnification with the advantage of plenty of room between the lens of the microscope, the PCB and soldering iron. With superior optics, pads and joints can be easily soldered with optimum clarity and contrast.

Portable magnification inspection when you need it!

With a high resolution colour display, simple button operation and image capture/download capability, CamZ is ideal for roving inspectors, documenting faults, or for inspecting immobile subjects.

- 4x - 14x magnification

- Portable inspection and documentation

- Store up to 100 images

Suitable for all production environments, CamZ provides high resolution magnification and documentation, where you want, when you want, ideal for inspecting immobile subjects. With the capacity to store up to 100 images, this portable device is great for capturing images of immobile subjects which would otherwise be difficult to document.
