The VHX series digital microscope from Keyence integrates advanced zoom optics with a CCD camera, 17" LCD monitor, light source, controller and analysis/reporting software. It is designed to streamline testing and improve the speed and efficiency of the inspection process.
 
With magnification ranging from 0.1× to 5,000×, the series enables a range of microscopic observation, from macro-scale stereoscopic imaging to detailed analysis of an SEM. Supported lighting options include bright and dark field, transmitted, polarized and differential interference observation.
 
The VHX-2000 microscope system includes a color filter wheel to enable users to choose a specific wavelength (red, green or blue) of light for their samples. A super-resolution mode combines the blue filter with Kenence’s pixel shift technology to capture better-resolution images.
 
To improve the operation and ease-of-use, the microscope system can be equipped with a motorized XY stage along with motorized Z-axis lens control. Users can adjust movement in all three axes by using an included control pad. When combined with the Double’R lens/magnification recognition function, the microscope automatically can provide the ideal movement speed for the XY stage and enable one-push automatic focus and calibration, the company says. The image stitching function can be completed with the push of a button to produce an image ranging to 20,000 × 20,000 pixels that expands the viewing area by as much as 200 times.
 

Automated measurement functions simplify difficult of measurement tasks and remove variation between different users. The system can also save a portion of the image/measurements as a template to measure future samples.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
