Viewing system for inspection and rework

20 November 2002 Electronics Technology

The Mantis viewing system bridges the critical gap between the microscope and bench magnifier.

Vision Engineering's unique and patented spatial imaging system meets the demands of higher magnification, flexibility, better illumination and a more ergonomic working position without eyepieces. The Mantis has become a worldwide industry standard for low range magnification. Over 80 000 units have been installed in industrial, manufacturing, research, educational and other sites worldwide, according to the manufacturer. Mantis has stereo optics, easily switched between x2, x4, x6, x8, x10 magnification. It gives good depth perception with optimal colour rendition, making inspection and manipulation of complex surfaces particularly effective. The design helps to increase throughput and reduce mistakes by reducing eyestrain and body fatigue.

Typical applications are in electronics; for PCB and component assembly, inspection - goods inwards or quality control, and rework and soldering. Others are precision engineering/plastics; medical/dental device manufacture; and biomedical industries.
