Olympus Honored by Laser Focus World 2018 Innovators Awards Program

LEXT OLS5000 3D laser confocal scanning microscope received a Silver award

Published: Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - 12:00

(Olympus: Waltham, MA) -- Olympus announces its LEXT OLS5000 3D laser confocal scanning microscope was recognized by the judges of the annual Laser Focus World Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of senior industry experts who honored the microscope with a Silver award.

The LEXT OLS5000 precisely measures shape and surface roughness at the submicron level. It’s ideal for research and development, as well as quality control inspection in industries including automotive manufacturing, metal processing, additive manufacturing, and electric component and semiconductor manufacturing.

New features:
• 4K scanning technology and optics enable the detection of near-perpendicular features and small steps at close to nano-scale.
• Acquires data 4X faster and has intuitive software designed to automate many common settings.
• An expansion frame and a dedicated, long-working distance lens perform precise measurements on samples up to 210 mm in height and concavities up to 25 mm deep—even those with uneven surface cracks.
