Boom Mounted Optics


There are many applications for boom mounted optics. The most common is the ability to use a microscope mounted above a wide working surface like an assemblers or inspectors table. Shown below are just a few of hundreds of possible different combinations of boom mounted optics. Meiji Techno has a wide variety of optics choices, illumination, video cameras and boom stands including heavy duty boom arm and articulating arm stands, not shown here, allowing our users the flexibility required to get their most challenging imaging tasks done quickly and easily.
