Nikon's MM-400/800-LM models have a built in motorised Z- axis scale providing accurate 3-axis measurements. In addition, these models support an optional visual focusing aid that uses a split prism to ensure manual Z-axis focusing accuracy and minimises human measurement errors caused by the difference in the objectives depth of focus. A new focusing aid mechanism provides sharper and more accurate focusing so high precision Z-axis measurement is easier than ever, and a fully motorised Z-axis movement mechanism simplifies accurate vertical movement through the use of a dedicated controller.
The new MM-400/800 series also supports a significantly expanded observation range due to a wide variety of available lighting options. The MM- 400/800 /LM and MM-400/800/S, /L and /SL models support a high-intensity white LED illuminator featuring a constant colour temperature and lifetime bulb for brightfield observations. These features are widely used in medical device manufacturing, dies and molds, finely machined and stamped parts and in injection molded applications. The /LMU models support high powered magnification used in semiconductor packaging applications, bonding placement and wafer level CSP and feature a wide selection of universal epi-illuminators to respond to a broad range of observation requirements. A 12V-50W halogen light source is also available for universal applications.
