Experience another dimension

QMT readers can win the chance to use state-of-the-art Olympus opto-digital technology. Do you have a cutting-edge precision engineering or materials science inspection project or an idea for one? 

In partnership with QMT magazine, Olympus is inviting short proposals for innovative inspection projects which are technically challenging and require advanced microscopy solutions.
 Three successful applicants will receive sponsorship from Olympus in the form of an opto-digital microscope system loaned free-of-charge for up to 6 months. The sponsorship also includes free installation, training and technical support to help accelerate your project. 

The range of Olympus microscopes available includes the LEXT OLS4100 3D laser scanning microscope for surface inspection and the award-winning opto-digital DSX 500 and DSX 500i microscopes for a variety of measurement tasks. The Olympus opto-digital range has been designed to combine operating simplicity with advanced optics and high precision for non-contact, non-destructive metrology and inspection. The systems feature simple on-screen visualisation and touch-screen capabilities in place of eyepieces for universal ease-of-use and minimal user training. The LEXT OLS4100 3D laser scanning microscope for surface metrology includes an ultra-fast mode enabling the measurement of micro-samples with very steep angles, and a multi-layer mode to facilitate observation and measurement of challenging transparent samples. 

The DSX systems, suitable for the inspection of a large range of sample types, sizes and weights, automatically generate a selection of previews for each imaging technique, allowing the user to quickly select the best imaging approach. This facilitates the rapid and simple identification of the inspection detail required.The closing date for applications is July 31st 2014. Find out more and apply at: www.qmtmag.com
