Fully motorized and modular

Hirox is a fully motorized and modular microscope. Every optic, lens, stand, software is upgradable time by time at any time. Hirox can go from a lab configuration to a portable configuration just in a moment, mounting it on flexible arm stands with wheels, for the inspection and scan of larger samples.

Nano point Scanner – Confocal profilometer

The NPS is a confocal white light sensor that can be attached to the Hirox digital microscope to combine metrology and microscopy. Imaging & Metrology at high resolution and high magnifications at the microns and nano level on any type of surface (mirror, shiny, reflective, rough, opaque or transparent).
Contactless profilometer ISO certified for profile and surface roughness measurements.

Patented Motorized Rotary Head

Motorized rotary lens for live failure analysis at 360 degrees. It allows to rotate around the sample without touching it recording full HD videos. Patented by Hirox, developed to obtain three-dimensional imaging with great depth of field of micro-macro structures of components with complex geometry, in areas normally inaccessible with other inspection technologies.

Large stand for large samples

Hirox can be mounted on several stands depending on the application: Materials Testing, Research & Development, Art Restoration & Museums, Aerospace & Defence, Automotive, Forensic, Banks applications...

Revolutionary Concept of Universal 3D Microscopy!

Hirox strenghts:

  • Imaging & Metrology at high resolution and high magnifications up to 10.000x.

With a large number of optional stands, the widest magnification range in the world, unmatched working distances, wide field of view and ultra-high resolution scanning of large surfaces, the latest Hirox is the most versatile instrument in the world for observations, micro-scanning and 3D data acquisition of surfaces. Image analysis and comparison, particle counting, morphological and geometric characterization, reverse engineering and micro prototyping.

New telecentric lenses with large aperture and long working distance offer distortion-free images for very precise measurements in a magnification range from 1: 1 to 10,000 x! with very high resolution and incomparable sharpness.

The zoom lenses are fully motorized, encoded and interchangeable with magnetic quick attach lenses for easy use, greater precision and a high level of work automation.

A wide range of optional stands, and the possibility of detaching the body of the microscope from the stand allows the use of the microscope for an innumerable series of diversified industrial and or research applications, both in the laboratory or on the field.

The Hirox control unit works with an external PC, this allows continuous hardware and software expandability of the system. The 3D Function, Tiling And Multi Focus are fully automatic.

New motorized lenses

The ultra high resolution telecentric motorized zoom lens provides high precision 3D reconstruction even at low magnification without distortion.

Failure Analysis – Quality Assurance – Tribology – Metallography – Contactless Profilometry – Auto Multi Focus – Surface Roughness

New 4K software interface.
The new software interface works well with the 4K displays commonly available now on standard PCs. All software controls are easily visible and arranged, making the software intuitive and easy to use.
Auto Multi Focus.
This standard feature instantly creates a fully focused image even for objects with large height differences. Anyone can easily perform this extended observation without being limited by the depth of field.

Mosaic and 3D map

Simply select the area of interest to automatically stitch images in real time with the motorized XYZ stage, creating stunning high resolution images with a wide field of view. Automatic stitching in 2D and in 3D.

Automatic 2D measurement

Accurate and calibrated measurements in real time of lengths, area, angles, diameters. Automatic reports are generated with all of the taken measurements.

Easy 3D measurement

Very fast 3D Scan with 1 second click to measure profiles,heights, volumes, roughness, angles, radius. It is also possible to export the points cloud in stl for micro parts reverse engineering and cad comparison.

Particle analyzer

Particles are automatically detected with pass / fail filter (ISO16232 Compliant). Advanced statistical data are automatically calculated and displayed in Excel. It is then very easy to measure the shape and area of each particle.

Motorized Microscope

Hirox is fully motorized in the XYZ axes. The stand can be inclinated up to 90 degrees o both sides and the XY stage can be large up to 500x500mm or 1000x1000mm, suitable for motorized automatic stitching in 3D.


Wide choice of optics and lenses

The new concept of telecentric and encoded motorized zoom lenses is the result of over 40 years of excellence in optical manufacturing and engineering. The new HIROX 3D digital microscope offers contact and non-contact optics with variable angle of incidence illumination for the inspection of multi-layered surfaces with inhomogeneous transmittance and diffused light illumination for highly reflective subjects. The software automatically recognizing the informations and magnifications of the mounted lens. The Lenses are magnetic, which makes switching between them very easy and quick.

Special stand and lighting

Fully Motorized Stand

Hirox has created a completely new tilting stand and a high-precision 80mm motorized Z-movement, providing the highest level of accuracy for various applications.

The XY stage can be motorized or manual (50x50mm or 100x100mm). The stand includes the integration of built-in transmitted illumination, controlled by the software, increasing observation capabilities, as well as anti-vibration feet for better stability.

For maximum ease of use, all axes can be controlled with the wireless 3D mouse.

A new standard of microscopy and surface metrology
Imaging & Metrology at high resolution and high magnification

HIROX invented the videomicroscope in 1980 in Japan, and became famous all over the world for its great versatility of use for many fields: medicine, science, industry. Thanks to the high quality of the images and the possibility of solving complex industrial and scientific applications.

Today the HIROX 3D digital microscope is no longer just a microscope but it has become an OPTICAL 3D SCANNER!

An ideal tool for micro-scanning of surfaces and for carrying out topographic mapping, 3D measurements and reverse engineering, overcoming the limits of the conventional microscopes.

It is the highest resolution non-contact optical scanner on the international market compared to traditional laser scanners and structured light …).
