Bowers’ Vision of Quality
Bowers Metrology has announced the launch of the CV MM-600, Inverted Metallurgical Microscope. Suitable for observing the microscopic surfaces of a wide range of nontransparent objects, the cost effective new CV MM-600 microscope is equipped with an easy to access, inverted mechanical stage. Based on high-precision slide ways, the advanced new instrument’s robust stage is capable of accommodating large workpieces, whilst ingenious ergonomics ensure that the operator is able to achieve rapid yet precise control over stage movement, using one hand only.
Ideal for use in metallographic, mineralogy, precision engineering, and electronics laboratories, as the CV MM-600’s trinocular system can easily be switched from manual observation to the unit’s video channel, the robust new instrument is also suitable for many other applications, including scientific research, teaching, demonstrations within education establishments, or even for use on the shop floor.
The CV MM-600’s vertical illumination and trinocular polarizer device provides clear, crisp and high-contrast images with or without colour filters. Amongst many other advanced features Bowers’ new microscope includes: plan achromatic objectives with long working distance and wide-field eyepieces, optional quick or slow displacements of the mechanical stage and a coarse/fine coaxial focus system.
A wide range of optional MM-600 accessories are available including a high-quality video camera system, with Windows PC based software for image analysis, a photographic unit 10X Viewing eyepiece, a 2.5X/4X Change over photograph attachment and a choice of digital camera C-mount adapters.
