INSPECTIS Now Offers Focus Stacking with UHD (4K) Imaging

Reading time ( words)

INSPECTIS AB now offers the benefits of Focus Stacking with UHD (4K) imaging to produce images of depth as well as engaging detail for users of its digital microscopes. The Focus Stacking feature is driven by INSPECTIS’ powerful ProX software.

“With Focus Stacking, multiple images taken at different focus depths are combined to give a resulting image that has a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual images themselves,” states Alistair Gooch, Marketing Manager. “With an INSPECTIS camera connected to a PC running ProX software, one can stack from 6-22 images at different focus planes to create one single sharp image with a very large depth of field not available with single images at high magnification.” 

This is especially useful for reviewing and compiling detailed reports on subjects with greater than normal depth, e.g., populated boards with large discrete components, connectors, and other mechanical assemblies, he adds.

For maximum control, ProX offers two Focus Stacking modes: Auto and Manual. Generally swift, no-fuss results can be obtained simply by using the Auto mode and leaving the software to control the camera and decide on the focus steps. For some subjects (e.g.,  larger objects at lower magnification), it is sometimes better to make and collate a series of images and then process them using the manual mode.

There is also an ‘Enhanced mode’  that performs additional processing of the images that can further improve detail and reduce any noise issues. 


INSPECTIS AB offers advanced optical inspection solutions for the electronics and medical device manufacturing industries. a line of plug and play, reliable and cost-effective digital camera microscopes designed for demanding non-contact optical inspection and assembly.

The rise of the "digital" supply network—such as the cloud, big data, 3D printing, augmented reality, or the internet of things (IoT)—promises to address issues such as increasing global competition, rising consumer expectations, and the increasingly complex patterns of consumer demand, by providing a greater level of transparency, innovation, and resiliency. And there is a growing belief among business strategists that the more digitalized our manufacturing supply chains can become, the greater our efficiency will be.

In the nine months since IPC joined in President Trump’s “Pledge to America’s Workers” and committed to creating 1 million new skilled workforce opportunities over the next five years – a fair question has been asked: Are we taking credit for actions we would have done anyway? Was this motivated by politics?
