MachVis software makes it easy to select the right lens for a wide variety of applications, including machine vision, microscopy, dimensional measurement, quality assurance, inspection, robotics and automated imaging. By specifying the basic parameters of your imaging task, the software recommends suitable lenses from the extensive Qioptiq portfolio of machine vision lenses, including all necessary accessories and instantly illustrates a schematic of complete system set-ups.
