Sean D, Production Support Team Leader, AST

Now we have an accurate way of measuring the face plates, we are able to check the supplies match the drawings. Without it we would just have to accept that the suppliers have manufactured the substrates within the tolerance given to them.”

The oblique viewer gives you that extra dimension and there is no other way we can do it. We get so much use out of the Lynx for our applications. It is invaluable and an absolute godsend

Andy Phillips, Director of Double M Engineering Ltd

“We invested in the Mantis after our customer recommended the stereo microscope for specifically inspecting the firing pins. As the component parts are quite small, we were struggling to inspect the components by using our eyes alone due to their size and surface finish. Now we have the Mantis, we are minimising waste where we are able to clearly inspect the firing pins for a smooth surface finish.”

Alan D Griffiths, Quality Technician, Panasonic Communications Ltd

“Since we have invested in the Lynx we have found that it has paid for itself many times over. Initially we were using it to measure the pitch on the various PCBs we produce, but over the years it has been utilised extensively across the whole site”

Alan D Griffiths, Quality Technician, Panasonic Communications Ltd

“The Lynx is literally used 24/7 and in a number of departments for a wide range of measurement and inspection tasks. If there is something we need to communicate back to design, we can capture the area in question and send it electronically. This will enable us to get answers quickly, optimising our time and the turnaround time of a run”.

Antique art restorer Lloyd Williams

“Without a doubt, Mantis has met with my expectations and has delivered an outstanding alternative to conventional magnification.”

“The ergonomic advantages of the Mantis stereo viewer are unparalleled with any conventional microscope. I have been highly recommending it to other antique and art restorers in the field and will continue to do so.”

Moores Glassworks

“As we pride ourselves on providing a fast turnaround time for our customers, we need to rely on our inspection equipment to be accurate and easy to use. Furthermore, the inspection systems from Vision Engineering provide the team with ergonomic benefits with the ‘eyepiece-less’ technology, improving productivity.”

“Inspecting toner cartridges can be time consuming and difficult to coordinate when you are viewing components at different angles. After investigating different solutions we have invested in the Mantis because it optimises hand to eye coordination providing both precision and pace to our production line. We have since invested in several Mantis”

Royal Botanic Kew Gardens Millennium Seed Bank

“We do a lot of microscopy work which by its nature can be very tedious and monotonous, but the Lynx makes it a lot easier on the users because they can maintain a really comfortable posture.”

Filippo Fumagalli, R&D Manager of Electra Engineering

“For many years we used a profile projector to assess the measurement of our components but we felt the need for a more precise measurement instrument, with a much wider and more modern capability. It seemed to us that the solution offered by Vision’s Hawk System could satisfy all of our requirements. The Hawk offered good benefits to not only the development in the initial stages but also to the pre-production stage as well.”

David Bailey, Technical Director of Sterimedix

The Mantis Elite allows our inspectors to maximise the use of their hands when turning and rotating the component.  With other magnification systems, we have found we have to spend needless time aligning the binocular head to see the product clearly. However, with the Mantis Elite and its viewing head, we can see the component instantaneously.”

Chris Kent, Director of Rowan Precision

“We wanted to find a measuring solution that would work for our entire range of production, from complex connectors through to stainless steel and plastic medical devices.  Hawk offered us this flexibility and gave us confidence in the accuracy and repeatability of our processes.”

Steve Broadbridge, Product Improvement Manager at GE Druck

“We have found that using the Hawk provides us with an optical image which allows us to easily find the edges of any imperfection enabling our operators and engineers to be precise in their measurements in all axes”.

Azzoli, Donohue

Before we installed the Lynx microscope, it took our operators around 10-20 minutes to fully inspect a paper sample, due to the ease of use and image quality of the Lynx, an identical inspection now takes just 5-10 minutes, which means we are now capable of taking on extra production work “.

Bryan Austin, Director & General Manager at Renishaw

“The Mantis delivered everything we needed to successfully carry out our visual inspection process.  With the certificate of conformance that we are providing to our customers, it is imperative that we produce crowns and bridges that are a perfect fit.”

Tony Laurie, Dental Excellence Ltd

“With each technician checking the work at each stage of the process we have both a high quality product in technology terms and a high quality product in aesthetic terms. The use of Mantis® is an enabling technology and keeps all of my technicians happy. They know the difference between good and poor quality and using Mantis they can see the difference.”

Ken Delderfield, Specialist Technologies Aerospace Group Quality Manager

“Hawk is the ideal piece of metrology equipment for us. It is easy to use and flexible enough to gauge nearly all of our components. The reporting capability allows me to capture a data file for every component we measure, which is vital for component traceability”.
