Sibress SIS: Ultra compact digital measuring microscope equipped with a powerful software tool
Thursday, February 14, 2013
Perfectly suited for quality assurance, analysis of production parameters or diagnosing a defect or a complaint. Which simple tool is available if the smallest details of printed dots need to be judged and discussed and they are hardly visible to the human eye? What if the parties involved are in different places around the world and they need to communicate this matter on objective basis? And if it is necessary to store and retrieve the commonly discussed points, this is valid for all, whether it is in the Flexo, package printing, in the field of safety and security printing or just in the general applications of any other industry. The answer to these questions is the new combination of the digital measuring microscope and the Sibress SIS software with its built in calibration function.
Small in form, large in its possibilities
With the new system, Sibress, based in Starnberg, Germany, remains faithful to its philosophy to develop and market easy to use, compact, high quality measuring instruments. Due to its compact size (big as a fist) the small instrument, powered by 2 AA batteries, can be carried anywhere. With its built in 2 inch colour monitor images become visibly independent from a PC. Saved images can be transferred to the PC either via an SD card or via USB cable.
The SIS software analyses printed dots fully automatically. Results are shown in Dot% area, Lines/cm or Lines/inch. A wide range of manual measurement functions is built in to support the user to get a correct result. Due to the calibration of the instrument results are repeatable.
The ruler shows distances in μm, angles in degree and length in distance. Images can be stored and retrieved. This clever device shows details of multi color print formats or the smallest particles on paper, cardboard, metals and flexible or rigid plastic materials at the PC monitor quickly and clearly visible. For even greater functionality, the software offers a comprehensive set of measuring tools, with functions to measure the diameter and distance of printed dots. The software runs under Windows 32 and 64 Bit.
The new digital microscope, equipped with a CMOS sensor and a powerful optical system allows an enlargement of 3 and 35 times to make images in full color mode.
High power, white LED’s illuminate an area of 12x 10mm or 1,3x1,8mm, depending on the magnification. The camera resolution can be switched between VGA, 1.3MB and 2MB. The camera is designed to be calibrated in the 1.3MB mode to show correct repeatable results.
The new Sibress SIS facilitates local independent communication and co-operation.
The new Sibress SIS improves communication and helps sales, service, and technical personnel provide better answers to more quickly satisfy customers’ needs. Quality control staff can make good use of the image marking functions to illustrate product defects and create standard operating procedures to improve quality. Images are easily stored or transmitted via internet connection.
