Which Microscope System is Right for My Manufacturing Laboratory?
Here are some of the different types of microscope systems that you might consider for your manufacturing/metrology laboratory.
Upright Nikon microscopes serve a wide variety of applications such as liquid crystal displays, wafer inspection, electronics, and plastics, just to name a few. Universal microscope objectives with high numerical apertures and long working distances all combine for fast, smooth observations no matter what the application.
Inverted Nikon microscopes are known for their optical quality, flexibility, modularity, ease of use, ergonomics, and mechanical precision. The MA100L and MA200 models are ideal for metallurgical samples, electronic components, failure analysis and materials science.
Stereomicroscopes by Nikon offer users the most extended zoom range of any such instrument, along with modularity, comfort and ultra-high-performance optics. Stereomicroscopy is the primary tool for manufacturing quality control and preliminary examination of samples. Operating at magnifications between about 5X and 157X, the stereomicroscope provides a three-dimensional visual perspective with exceptional depth of field and can be configured for oblique top light, transmitted light, polarized light, coaxial illumination or fluorescence.
Measuring microscopes from Nikon are excellent solutions when you need to inspect and measure 2D and 3D parts. These easy-to-use microscopes offer high reliability and an exceptional level of precision and durability. Digital image capture using a Nikon digital camera and Elements software allows rapid measurement with precise auto edge detection.
Scanning electron microscopes serve as advanced imaging tools for industrial research and inspection. The JEOL JCM-6000Plus benchtop scanning electron microscope provides amazing surface magnifications by combining the familiarity of a digital camera with the high resolution and depth of field of a powerful, full-size SEM. Add the optional EDS detector for full elemental identification and analysis.
