      Mantis

       

      The Mantis family is a unique range of patented optical systems without eyepieces, for intricate tasks requiring superb quality viewing over long periods of time. Mantis is in use in tens of thousands of sites worldwide and has become the accepted standard for ergonomics and high performance magnification.

      The latest generation of Mantis incorporates the most modern advances in optical design, moulded plastics and LED illumination.

      The stereo eyepieceless Mantis viewer has a very wide range of applications but is often used in manufacturing industries including electronics, precision engineering, plastics, medical devices and many more. It is also widely installed in production laboratories, biomedical sites and in analytical laboratories around the world.

      Particular advantages of the next generation Mantis are:

      • Entry level, low investment versions

      • Compact, functional units

      • Wide range of magnification options (to x20)

      • Shadow-free LED cold illumination, both surface and substage

      • Long working distances; large depths of field

      • Stable structures for high magnification viewing

      Vision Engineering has designed and manufactured world leading optical systems since 1958. The Companys patented optical viewers, microscopes and measuring systems are manufactured in Vision Engineering factories in the UK (2 sites) and the USA (2 sites).

  • Benefits and Features

      Mantis Compact and Mantis Elite.


      Mantis Compact is smaller, with a lower magnification range and a considerably lower investment price. Mantis Elite offers a wider, higher performance specification including high magnification and field of view (field number), working distance and head tilt capability.

      Mantis Compact excels in the low magnification range for inspection or manipulation tasks where bench magnifiers have traditionally been used. Mantis Elite has enhanced optical performance, including higher magnification, making it a perfect alternative to traditional stereo microscopes for a wide range of inspection, preparation and manipulation tasks requiring hand-to-eye co-ordination.

      Both Mantis Compact and Mantis Elite can be mounted on a counter balanced universal arm, or on a stable bench stand with integrated focus and substage (transmitted) illumination.
