Project Description

This product is specially designed for the field of ultra-precision optical microscopy technology research and development, in response to the photovoltaic industry of solar panel topography measurement and wire grid key size measurement needs, the development of confocal 3D measurement microscope, combined with modern optical technology and advanced mechanical manufacturing process, aiming to provide users with ultra-high-definition, accurate and stable microscopic observation experience. The product has full range map navigation, automatic focus, a wide range of measurement stitching and other functions, can achieve accurate, convenient and efficient automatic measurement of microstructure, widely used in material science research, new energy and semiconductor manufacturing and testing, biology, medical research and other precision industrial testing and other related fields. The design concept of this product is to integrate advanced optical technology, mechanical design, control system and image processing technology, aiming to create a An efficient, stable, accurate and user-friendly industrial inspection tool. The purpose is to ensure that the microscope can maintain excellent image quality and stability in complex industrial environments, while providing an intuitive and easy-to-use interface to meet a variety of precision inspection needs.
Technically, the 3D profile obtained by scanning can be analyzed in multiple sections to calculate the height and width of the grid line for each section. The product has the function of measuring the profile size and roughness of the surface topography, measuring and analyzing the surface topography features such as the profile, flatness, roughness, porosity and bending deformation of the surface of products, components and materials. With the integrated operation and inspection process, the system software will automatically count the measurement data and provide the data report export function, which can quickly realize the batch inspection function.
Mechanical structure design, the main frame is made of metal materials, through precision machining technology and strict assembly process, to ensure the structural stability of the optical microscope, strong shock resistance and other issues. At the same time, the adjustment mechanism of the microscope is optimized, and the manual and automatic double adjustment mechanism is configured, so that the user can perform the focusing operation efficiently and conveniently.
In the appearance design, the design conforms to the ergonomic principle while meeting the reasonable structure layout and ensuring the operation and observation comfort. The overall shape is simple and atmospheric, and the design emphasizes smooth lines and integrated structural features. In addition to aesthetics, it follows the design principles of dustproof, internal stray light isolation and other microscopic instruments to effectively improve the signal-to-noise ratio of fluorescence detection. The main tone of the product color is dark blue, which can better highlight the precision and high-end sense of the microscope, and distinguish it from many similar products using white, making it stand out. Secondly, dark blue has better visual comfort, long-term observation will not cause visual and mental fatigue, and can better fit with the calm and rigorous atmosphere of the laboratory. This helps to increase user focus.
