Stereo Zoom Boom Stand Microscope
We specialize in Stereo Zoom Boom Microscopes & Stereo Boom Stand Mounted Microscope equipment for industrial applications. We custom build your Stereo Boom Stand Microscope to your own specifications from a choice of conventional stand or boom stands available in heavy double arm stands and single boom microscope stands.
A Boom Stand Microscope consists of either a trinocular or binocular microscope head mounted on a long metal arm that extends over the working area. The trinocular port is used to fit a digital microscope camera to enable you to capture images and video of the viewed specimen.
We stock a variety or boom articulating arms that can be moved around the working area with ease,
Common boom stand applications include electronics repair, circuit board reapir and inspection, soldering of small joints, engraving, clock and watch repairs, mobile phone repair, electronics industry, jewellery repair, forensic document examination.
Stereo Boom stand mounted microscopes come in a large variety of configurations. All are stereoscopes, meaning they have two microscope eyepieces and give a 3D stereoscopic view with depth perception.
We have both zoom magnification and fixed magnification microscope objectives to select from. The zoom is the better choice as it gives a variable magnification over the full zoom range. The fixed magnification models typically are turret style magnification selection and magnification is changed by turning the objective turret.
We stock both binocular stereo zoom heads and trinocular heads that have a third vertical eyetube to enable the fitting of a digital microscope camera.
When selecting the magnification of eyepieces and objective lenses for your stereo boom stand microscope, working distance must also be considered as well as depth of field. A long working distance is usually a preferrence so the operator can work under the stereoscopic microscope head.
For applications doing microscopic inspection only, such as quality control inspection stations for circuit board manufacturing, working distance is not relevant. For these inspection applications, a bottom objective barlow reduction lens may not be needed unless the quality control inspection department prefers to reduce the magnification.
If one is in the market for a boom stand microscope, there are different types to consider. First, consider if one is interested in getting the trinocular photography port or using a simple binocular stereo microscope head. Next, the microscopist must consider if their budget allows them to get a higher price zoom microscope head or if they can only afford a fix magnification head. And finally, the type of boom stand must be considered.
