UNIMAC Macroscopes:
UNIMAC Macroscopes are a fully modular universal zoom macroscope system with a wide array of features and the versatile modular lens systems is suited for a variety of applications. Perfect for industrial, medical, educational, research applications as well as custom or OEM applications. A visual magnificaiton range from 3.5X to 135X (with optional lenses) shows the exceptional clarity and depth of field.

The UNIMAC Macroscopes is uniquely capable where low magnification ranges and extraordinary depth of field is required. There characteristics make them most useful in the examination of whole devices and the study and control of mini-manufacturing processes. The UNIMAC Macroscopes offers important advantages to the user. It is fully modular in concept and in construction. A universal range of the techniques can be quickly applied and all modes of observation – visual, photographic and television can be employed.

The UNIMAC Macroscopes magnification range goes from 0.7X – 4.5X, but can be modified and extended by our auxiliary lenses. Additional illumination can be added, such as our true coaxial illuminator, which gives a large field of view. Also available is the 1/4 wave plate in a rotatable mount which permits inspections in polarized light. Which is especially useful when examining “overlay” circuits. Meaning in one orientation of the 1/4 wave plate can be observed, while another overlaid circuit will be visible when the 1/4 wave plate is rotated 90° degrees.
