Keyence has released a new multi-purpose microscope. The company says the VHX-700F provides some of the advanced functions of the VHX Series, such as depth composition and 3D display, as well as offering the same image quality and primary measurement capabilities at a lower price.
The VHX-700F incorporates observation, measurement, and image recording capabilities into a single device, and offers all of the imaging techniques found in traditional inspection equipment, according to Keyence.
The microscope boasts a 0.1x - 5,000x magnification range and provides bright field, dark field, and transmitted illumination. Additional attachments offer polarised, diffused, and DIC imaging methods. Users can also inspect inside small openings with a complete lineup of borescopes and fibrescopes.
By combining the technology generally found in stereoscopic, metallurgical, measurement, and scanning electron microscopes, the VHX-700F is able to accentuate the strengths of these systems while avoiding many of their limitations.
