Gives Scopes Wide Range of Motion
ANN ARBOR, MI - Convenience and versatility distinguish Aven's newest microscope accessory, a Lightweight Articulating Arm Stand that allows a wide range of horizontal and vertical movement. Users can position a scope easily to perform varied industrial and laboratory tasks.
Scopes attach securely to a 23-inch (580 mm) extension post. The articulating arm travels up or down smoothly and remains stable in any position. A 12-inch (315 mm) horizontal post adds range of motion to pivot over parts, products, specimens and other objects being examined. The working distance is nearly 20 inches (500 mm).
"This compact Articulating Arm Stand is ideal for inspecting sizable parts, oddly shaped pieces and parts attached to large or awkward items," says Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven, Inc. "The small footprint saves workbench space, and it's light enough to slide out of the way between uses."
Extensive positioning options make the Articulating Arm Stand practical for scientific research, laboratory work, electronics and assembly quality control, and educational use.
The 11-pound aluminum stand holds microscope bodies up to 20 pounds. A table clamp is included as a mounting alternative. Working range can be extended with Aven's Tiltable Arbor or an E-Arm.
Aven's microscope system selections also include single- and double-arm boom stands.
