The PAINT BORER 518 (USB) operates with the standardized wedge-cut method, in which the sample is drilled at a defined angle. The image is captured directly at the object using the high-resolution digital microscope (50x magnification) with integrated lighting (8x white LED, adjustable), equipped with a 2 million pixel CMOS image sensor and scalable precision measurement. To connect to a PC/laptop/WINDOWS tablet, the new Paint Borer 518 USB offers a convenient option to digitally support the visual recognition, acquisition, measurement and documentation. Software is included. The MC version does not have an external connection option (for PC, laptop, etc.).
