JENA, Germany, Jan. 28, 2016 — The Smartproof 5 widefield confocal microscope from Carl Zeiss AG is designed for industrial applications in quality assurance and quality control departments, production environments and R&D labs. The system provides 3D reconstructions and roughness measurements for a range of workpiece surfaces. Users benefit from an integrated design, repeatable results and high throughput. The camera’s design allows it to be installed and run in different working environments without additional antivibration equipment. The optics, electronics and camera are all embedded in the microscope with minimal cabling to eliminate clutter.
