Should You Focus on Cost or Quality When Buying an Inspection Microscope?
Summary based on an original article by Stephan Sanderson, Product Manager, Vision Engineering Inc.
Empirical studies do not make a clear distinction between cost and quality when buying an inspection microscope; therefore, it all comes down to what you are looking to accomplish.
A lower price tag often means low equipment quality and a short lifespan. Hence, reliability should be a primary consideration when buying a quality microscope, especially for challenging applications like inspecting medical device components or circuit board assembly. The ideal is to strike a balance between comfort for your workers, your business goals and your budget.
