Stereo Microscopes & Visual Inspection Systems by Vision Engineering

One of the most innovative microscope manufacturers in the world, Vision Engineering has specialized in next-generation ergonomic stereo microscopes and non-contact measuring systems since 1958. Their flagship product line is the Vision Engineering Mantis series, a highly advanced 3D visual inspection microscope. The Mantis microscopes product family includes the Compact, Elite, and Elite-Cam lines. Vision’s even more powerful microscope models include the Vision Lynx EVO system.

This microscope provides superior optical performance with an ergonomic design that enhances user comfort and productivity. Choose from 6x to 60x magnification (240x maximum).

History of Advanced Technology

Established in 1958 in Surrey, United Kingdom, Vision Engineering Ltd. began by suppling technologically advanced quality control equipment to the defense and aerospace sectors as well as the expanding electronics industry. From 1960 to1970, Vision Engineering products were exported to the U.S. to support the substantial growth in the electronics and defense markets.

Due to the growing demand for Vision Engineering products in the U.S., in 1973 founder Rob Freeman set up a joint venture with Kulicke & Suffa U.S.A. (known as Vision Systems Inc.) for OEM integration and distribution with an office in Ivyland, Penn. In 1974, Vision Systems Inc. became wholly owned by Vision Engineering Ltd. and moved to New York.

A year after its 1981 founding, Vision Engineering Inc. moved to its current location of New Milford, Conn. The building initially housed sales, service, tech support, and a small scale machine shop, set up by Rob and Robin Gable, who had started as an apprentice a in the optical shop in the UK headquarters.

High-Tech Microscopes for Demanding Environments

After 13 years of dedicated work, Vision Engineering revolutionized the microscope industry by introducing Mantis, the first eyepiece-less stereo microscope. Mantis was quickly adopted for assembly and quality control processes worldwide, particularly in the electronics, telecoms, and medical device markets.

As the demand for Mantis inspection systems grew, it became clear to use the facility in New Milford as the manufacturing site for Mantis, where it is still manufactured today.

Mantis has gone through many technological advances and has won many awards since its launch. It is known throughout the world as the ergonomic solution to stereo microscopes.

Similarly, the original New Milford site has grown to include sales and marketing, finance, service, and technical support. The original machine shop is now a modern manufacturing facility with a quality lab and cleanroom for assembly. The upgrades allow Vision Engineering to meet the high demands of Mantis as well as other opto-mechanical assemblies and contract manufacturing projects.

Leading-Edge Technologies

In 2019, Vision Engineering expanded its U.S. presence by opening a West Coast Technology Center in Irvine, Calif. This site serves as a support, training, and demonstration venue to bring Vision Engineering’s leading-edge technologies into the hands of potential tech collaborators and customers.

The company attributes their success to looking at the future and developing new technologies to improve quality in manufacturing, by inspection and measurement.
