Mantis Stereo Microscope - Incomparable 3-dimensional view

Mantis is an ergonomic eyepiece-less stereo microscope from Vision Engineering, offering superb optical performance with magnification options up to 15x, making it a perfect alternative to more traditional inspection stereo microscopes.

Patented eyepiece-less technology provides the Mantis Elite with truly exceptional 3-D imaging, plus a significant ergonomic advantage over conventional stereo microscopes, minimising operator fatigue and allowing the greater freedom of head movement, leading to increased quality and productivity.
Mantis Elite offers a large field of view and generous working distance to allow for a wide range of standard inspection, preparation and manipulation tasks, all with exceptional hand-eye co-ordination.


  • Magnification from 2x – 50x
  • Superior ergonomics for fatigue-free viewing
  • Incomparable 3D-view during the microscopy
  • Long working distance and large field of view
  • True colour, LED illumination providing up to 10,000 hours of shadow-free viewing
  • Choice of stands and accessories to suit numerous applications
  • Mantis Elite-Cam variant, with internally integrated USB2.0 digital camera
  • For all kinds of optical inspection and reworking in industry and life science in QA, manufacturing and laboratory

Fatigue-Free Viewing

Patented optical technology removes the need for restrictive eyepieces of a conventional microscope, allowing operators freedom of head movement, providing superb ergonomics and hand-eye co-ordination, plus the ability to wear glasses, if required.

Mantis Elite is a perfect alternative to traditional stereo microscopes, in use throughout the world for a wide range of inspection, preparation and manipulation tasks requiring hand-to-eye co-ordination.

Typical Applications

  • Electronics
    Inspection and rework for electronics PCB, solder joint inspection, Repair of electronic assemblies.

    The patented optical viewing head provides an unrivalled 3D view with ergonomic advantages of simple hand-eye co-ordination and fatigue-free soldering / inspection work.

  • Medical Device
    From stents to catheters, medical device components require 100% inspection to ensure every product sent out meets the exacting product specifications. Mantis is excellent for critical manual inspection because of its excellent image contrast.
  • Plastics and rubber
    Rubber seals, packaging, caps and closures are designed and precision manufactured to make them work effectively. Inspection for quality is essential. Rework, such as the removal of flash from the injection mould process may also be required, meaning Mantis’ long working distance is essential.
  • Precision engineering
    Precision engineered components are often critical components and utilised in industries such as aerospace and automotive. Mantis’ clear view and superior ergonomics are ideal for critical inspection for defects as they aid visual accuracy and minimise errors caused by user fatigue.
  • Dental
    Dental prosthetics are medical devices that need to be tailored for each individual. The manufacturing process often requires magnification from inspecting the initial moulds, to colour matching the final product.
  • Automotive, Aerospace, Packaging, Watch Making, Hair Restoration, Biomedical, …
