Mantis Compact is a unique ergonomic 3D inspection microscope from Vision Engineering which excels at low magnification tasks traditionally done with bench magnifiers or stereo microscopes.

Utilising Vision Engineering's patented eyepiece-less technology the Mantis Compact offers superior ergonomics reducing operator fatigue and improving productivity. Operators benefit from hand-eye co-ordination and complete freedom of head movement, with the ability to wear glasses if needed.

Mantis Compact is modular with several stand options and a choice of 4 objective lenses providing 2x, 4x, 6x or 8x magnification, which are easily interchangeable. Simply ‘twist and lock’ to change the objective lens. For higher magnification tasks up to 20x look for the Mantis Elite model which can be found below.

LED Illumination is integrated into the optical head providing bright white, true colour and shadow-free viewing.

Features include:

  • 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x magnification, quick change
  • 3D Stereo viewing
  • Long working distance and wide field of view
  • Ergonomic eyepiece-less design
  • Low operator fatigue, high productivity
