Olympus Introduces BondMaster® 600 Multimode Bond Tester

Olympus announced the introduction of the new BondMaster® 600 Bond Tester that is designed to nondestructively inspect bonds in honeycomb or laminate composites or metal-to-metal parts. This portable multimode adhesive bond testing instrument uses pitch-catch modes, mechanical impedance analysis (MIA), and resonance technologies to inspect materials that are commonly used in aerospace, energy, and automotive industries. The BondMaster 600 incorporates the latest advancements in high-performance bond testing technologies into one compact, durable unit with a vivid 5.7 inch full-screen VGA display capable of producing user-selectable, highly contrast signals in all lighting conditions. The BondMaster 600 weighs only 1.7 kg (3.75 lbs.) and is delivered with a factory-installed hand strap that provides direct thumb access to the key controls, offering instant adjustment of commonly-used parameters. Based on an already field-proven instrument enclosure, the instrument is designed for IP66 to withstand the rigors of harsh field conditions. Its ruggedness and long battery life, allowing up to 9 hours of standard operation, makes the BondMaster 600 an instrument that can be trusted for any bond testing inspection job. The BondMaster 600 is offered in two models to accommodate the varying needs of composite bond testing. Its basic model includes all pitch-catch mode while the BondMaster 600M multimode model features all three bond testing inspection modes including resonance and mechanical impedance analysis. Honeycomb inspection using pitch-catch is made easier by real-time readings on the display allowing easier flaw interpretation. In addition, in pitch-catch swept mode a new frequency tracking feature is useful when writing procedures or developing new applications. The resonance method with its factory application pre-sets is ideal for laminate composite and metal-to-metal disbonds. The mechanical impedance analysis (MIA) mode with its increased frequency range to 50 kHz allows identification of repaired areas and easy detection of small defects. Reliable bonds are essential to the integrity of aircraft composite structures throughout their service life. The BondMaster 600 is a multimode instrument uniquely developed to provide complete solutions for composite bond testing applications for both manufacturing QA/QC and in the field for maintenance inspections. Its simplified workflow from data acquisition and on-board storage to full reporting and archiving, as well as its interface makes the BondMaster 600 the instrument of choice in this market.

Olympus Corporation Announces Release of New DP27 and DP22 Microscope Digital Cameras on October 1, 2014

Olympus Corporation announced the release by its Scientific Solutions Business of the new DP27 and DP22 microscope digital cameras, with international sales to commence progressively from October 1, 2014. The DP series of microscope digital cameras are used with biological and industrial microscopes. Their ability to provide a real time display on an external monitor and to capture and record images makes them useful for conferences or for producing images for technical reports or other documents. The 'stand-alone digital camera' saves space by connecting the camera to a dedicated control box rather than a PC. The cameras can also be used via imaging software installed on a PC. Main Features: Higher frame rate when displaying live images, providing easier observation and recording The DP27 has a 5.05-megapixel high-resolution CCD and features a faster frame rate when displaying realtime images on an external display. The ability to display at a frame rate of 15 fps 3 (twice that of the previous DP26 model), even at the maximum resolution of 2448 x 1920, facilitates stress-free focusing and framing. The DP22 has a 2.80-megapixel high-resolution CCD and supports a frame rate of 25 fps 3. New mode for cell culture imaging: Conventional practice is to dye cells before viewing under a microscope. The observation of cell cultures, in contrast, does not use dye. Instead it typically uses techniques such as phase contrast or differential interference imaging to identify cell shape and other features based on the light level and contrast. The new Cell Culture Mode makes it easy to obtain the desired images by eliminating problems such as white-out of bright regions or excessive contrast. USB3.0 support for better connectivity: A USB standard that features high-speed data transfer and is used by a wide variety of devices.

Olympus Corporation Announces the Development of FV-OSR, New Super Resolution Technology from its Scientific Solutions Business

Olympus Corporation announced the development of FV-OSR, a new super resolution technology from its Scientific Solutions Business. This technology is used in conjunction with the FLUOVIEW FV1200 biological confocal laser scanning microscope to enable observation of smaller features than is possible using the microscope on its own. Olympus Super Resolution: Confocal laser scanning microscopes perform 3D imaging with high resolution, obtaining depth-axis information by blocking light from locations other than the focal point. Because of their ability to provide a 3D view of detailed cell structure, the microscopes are widely used for elucidating the role and function of proteins, nerves, and other components in life science research work such as drug discovery and applications in new fields. Microscope observations have a certain resolution (a measure of how finely features can be observed), which in the case of conventional optical microscopes is around 200 nm. However, confocal microscopes have a "super resolution component" that is theoretically capable of exceeding this limit. By combining digital technology with the company's core optical technology built up over many years, Olympus has successfully developed FV-OSR, a technology that can make this super resolution component visible. When used in conjunction with the FLUOVIEW FV1200 biological confocal laser scanning microscope (an existing product), this new technology makes it possible to observe features in greater detail than is possible using the microscope on its own, with a maximum resolution of 120 nm (approx.). Olympus will also release the FV10-OSRASW Super Resolution Imaging License on September 30, 2014 to provide software for using the new technology on the FLUOVIEW FV1200. Super resolution observations can be made by using this software and the FV12-HSD high-sensitivity detector (an existing product) with the FLUOVIEW FV1200 to boost its resolution.
