The Luxxor video microscope is an inspection station that allows users to attach either a microscope lens or a borescope to its mount. The microscope attachment features an f/4.5 zoom lens that delivers sharp, close-up views of the exterior of any metal machined part, casting or welded part, with magnification ranges from 15× to 83×. A quick change to the borescope attachment (not included) allows for high-quality internal inspection. Applications include manufacturing automotive, aerospace and medical parts.
The video microscope can switch from external to internal inspection mode by replacing the standard lens with a Hawkeye Precision borescope, or a borescope from most manufacturers, the company says. The microscope can capture video or still images with included computer software; document inspection images; store and e-mail documented images to quality teams, suppliers and others; measure defects or features accurately with a metrology capability; and adjust exposure and contrast levels to obtain sharp image quality.
