Woking-based Vision Engineering Ltd (www.visioneng.com
) — the developer of the ergonomic eyepiece-less Mantis microscopes, with manufacturing facilities in the UK and the USA plus regional offices in North America, Europe and Asia — recently announced the world-wide launch of its DRV-Z1 digital stereoscopic display system.
Designed at Vision Engineering’s UK headquarters, the DRV-Z1 enables the user to view high-definition 3-D images under magnification without using a flat screen, or requiring operators to wear goggles or specialist glasses.
Moreover, by linking multiple DRV systems via wired or wireless technologies, users can share and manipulate 3-D images of components, parts or products in real time.
The company says the DRV-Z1 is “set to transform supply network collaboration in manufacturing and quality, design and rapid prototyping — and even in the health-care and medical sectors.
“The ability to simultaneously share and discuss full 3-D images of critical parts, repairs or design enhancements without any delay offers tangible benefits.
"In terms of transfer of vital information, colleagues in multi-site organisations, suppliers and their customers, and designers and manufacturing engineers can use the DRV’s real-time connectivity to significantly accelerate and improve both product design and client response.”
The system uses Vision Engineering’s globally patented TriTeQ3 digital 3-D display technology.
Vision Engineering’s managing director, Mark Curtis, said: “This breakthrough technology sets a new industry standard, offering users an incredible 3-D viewing experience, without the need for glasses or head-sets.
"The ability to share high-definition images with other users anywhere in the world presents a huge opportunity to improve standards across key industries, such as health-care, manufacturing and the automotive sector.”
