Vision Engineering launches DRV-Z1 at Control

Posted 7 May 2019 · Add Comment

Vision Engineering Ltd., will unveil a revolutionary digital 3D stereoscopic display technology today at Control, in Stuttgart (7-10 May).



Unlike traditional mono digital microscopes, Vision Engineering’s Deep Reality Viewer (DRV) creates stereo high definition 3D images, without using a monitor or requiring operators to wear headsets or specialist glasses: images ‘float’ in front of a mirror.

Using Vision Engineering’s patented TriTeQ3 digital 3D display technology, the DRV-Z1 (Zoom model 1) incorporates a microscope and is the first device of its class to be launched by the manufacturer.

Developed to address quality control and assurance requirements in sectors including electronics, aerospace, automotive and medical industries, DRV-Z1 carries on the company’s 60 year long tradition of creating ergonomic, high quality visual inspection and metrology systems that reduce operator fatigue and improve accuracy, consistency and productivity.

DRV-Z1 is designed to advance the quality control and production process, by enabling operators to view magnified subjects in 3D, in unprecedented detail, without the need for additional viewing apparatus.

Vision Engineering anticipates that this unique, first-to-market device will be particularly valuable to organisations that model and test components in 3D, as well as facilitating improvements in manufacturing processes such as PCB inspection and reworking.

The award-winning manufacturer also sees huge capability for improving the quality control process in a broad range of industries. For example, in life science applications, it enables biological samples to be examined in stereoscopic HD 3D, without risking heat damage to tissues.

Commenting on the technological breakthrough, Paul Newbatt, Vision Engineering’s Sales and Marketing Director said: “TriTeQ3 blends Vision Engineering’s long-established, industry-proven and award-winning optical stereoscopic technologies and digital monoscopic technologies. DRV-Z1 delivers a technological breakthrough, and is a game changer for inspection and quality control processes.”

Mark Curtis, managing director of Vision Engineering said, “Over the past 60 years Vision Engineering has built its reputation on the innovation, quality, performance and ergonomics of our visual inspection and metrology systems. DRV-Z1 provides enhanced 3D visualisation and overcomes current problems with 3D modelling and inspection systems. By amalgamating our existing technologies, we’ve delivered an entirely new concept to our existing customer base, as well as opening up opportunities in fresh markets.”
 
Founded in 1958, Vision Engineering Ltd is a global manufacturer of patented ergonomic stereo microscopes, digital microscopes and non-contact measuring systems.

Headquartered in Send, Woking, UK, it has manufacturing facilities in the UK and US. Regional offices are located throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
Twenty-six years ago, Vision Engineering introduced the world’s first ‘eyepiece-less’ stereo microscope, the Mantis. It was an ergonomic revolution that went on to win numerous design and innovation awards.
