cienscope was founded in 1995 to meet the growing need for reliable
general purpose optical and video inspection solutions for the
electronics and PCB industries. We began with basic stereo zoom
microscopes used for SMT inspection and rework of circuit boards
and electromechanical assemblies with a commitment to quality,
value, and support. Scienscope has evolved to become a complete
inspection solution provider offering microscopes, measurement
systems, machine vision, and x-ray.
Our customer requirements lead to the evolution from basic stereo
microscopes to trinocular microscopes and micro-video optics with
CCTV camera systems for more comfortable viewing of applications.
Later with the addition of image capture options (analog video
capture cards and simple USB cameras) microscopes became valuable
tools for documentation and communication of defects, process
issues, and solutions.
Scienscope has further realized the development of these
advancements by adding image capture and digital viewing of
applications to all the systems that we provide. Our latest camera
technology is HD quality with integrated image capture to flash
memory drives or USB 2.0 interface.
In 2001 Scienscope offered our first video coordinate measuring
machines because of an expanding customer base with more
sophisticated inspection requirements and applications. We found
that more of our customers wanted the ability to measure very small
features in addition to their inspection requirements.
In keeping with our mission to offer value and quality, machines
are designed with granite base and z-column, steel measuring stages
with cross-roller bearings, and precision optics and digital
camera. Our current product line includes a variety of machine
designs and advanced measurement software with an intuitive
The systems are so user friendly that a dedicated operator is not
