          Basics - Measuring Microscope

          July, 2020

          Are you looking to learn the measuring microscope basics, including capabilities, advantages, best practices and next-generation functions? Our free metrology resource site offers fundamental knowledge related to dimensional measurement instruments, environment requirements, selecting the right tool for the job, and various inspection processes.


          1 Overview

          What is a measuring microscope? Also referred to as toolmakers microscope. A measuring microscope combines an optical microscope with a table capable of precise movements to measure targets. A telecentric optical system is used to enable accurate measurements.

          2 Capabilities and Advantages

          A measuring microscope, commonly known as a toolmakers microscope, allows for two-dimensional inspection of parts, as well as their surfaces. Measurements include lengths, angles, diameters, defects like burrs and scratches. Measuring microscopes have the advantage of being a non-contact, high-magnification inspection tool for precision measurements of small targets.

          3 Core Technology

          Learn about the core techology that drives these tools, and the next-generation measuring microscopes using the principals of these tools in new ways to bring added-value to production and quality inspection.
