Swift PRO Elite

Toolmakers’ Measuring Microscope

Swift PRO Elite is a simple, robust, optical measuring microscope, providing accurate measurements of a wide range of precision components, even difficult subjects such as black or transparent plastics.

  • Measuring range up to 200mm x 100mm
  • Easy to use 2/3 axis measurement system
  • Impressive repeatability and reproducibility

    Toolmakers’ Measuring Microscope

    Swift PRO Elite is a high accuracy optical measuring microscope, designed to transform your measurement and inspection capabilities.

    Small intricate parts, even difficult-to-view samples such as transparent plastics can be viewed in microscope-resolution detail through Swift PRO Elite’s patented optical viewing head.

    Rugged in construction, Swift PRO Elite is ideally suited for shop-floor production use, providing simple and accurate measurement of precision parts.


    Swift PRO Elite is the perfect starting point to upgrade your measurement and inspection capabilities and improve your quality control routines.

    What is Dynascope™ eyepiece-less technology?

    Swift PRO Elite with its Dynascope optical projection technology removes the need for conventional microscope eyepieces, offering the user a superior image of the subject.

    Black-on-black? White-on-white? Transparent subjects? Difficult-to-view features may all be viewed in intricate detail – something not always possible with other measuring devices such as profile projectors or video-based systems – making it easy to take accurate measurements.

    Simple. Rugged. Precise.

    Swift PRO Elite has been designed to cope with the demands of a busy production environment and includes Vision Engineering’s proven 200mm x 100mm precision measuring stage.

    The stage comes complete with factory-set Non-Linear Error Correction (NLEC) calibration to ensure optimum accuracy, traceable to international standards for the purposes of ISO9000.

    With space at a premium, the Swift PRO Elite’s small footprint doesn’t take up much room, yet can make a big difference to your production quality.

    Range of applications …

    Customers around the world use Vision Engineering measuring systems for a wide range of non-contact measurement applications, including:

    • Plastic parts (e.g. connectors, bottles, moulding)
    • Medical device (e.g. implants, tubing, stents)
    • Precision engineered parts (e.g. aerospace, automotive, defence)
    • Watchmaking
    • General manufacturing

    Measuring stage calibration, with NLEC

    Non-Linear Error Correction (NLEC) is the most accurate correction method available and uses a software algorithm to calculate and correct any errors across the measuring stage. All measuring stages are factory-set with NLEC calibration prior to installation.


    Swift PRO Elite comes with a choice of robust microprocessor or powerful M-series metrology software, for a complete solution.

    Intuitive PC Software

    With simplicity at its core, the intuitive M-series software can be used by shift workers or advanced users alike, simplifying complex work steps.

    • Intuitive PC-based metrology software enabling viewing on large monitors
    • Quick profile and surface measurement without pre-programming
    • Easy reporting and data export
    • CAD like Part View mark-up for easy inspection of the measured data


    Measurement Uncertainty

    (X, Y)

    Uncertainty formula U952D = 5+(6.5L/1000)µm

    Where L = length in mm, using controlled conditions with 100x magnification at the standard measuring plane. Increased accuracies may be obtained over shorter measuring lengths and by in situ system calibration.



    Z-axis accuracy 10μm, using controlled conditions with 100x magnification

    Video camera

    • High definition 2MP video camera.

    Magnification Options (System Total)

    Quick change magnification options:

    • 1x objective, 10x total magnification
    • 2x objective, 20x total magnification
    • 5x objective, 50x total magnification
    • 10x objective, 100x total magnification

    Measuring Stage

    Precision measuring stage, with factory-set Non-Linear Error Correction (NLEC) calibration as standard.
