Expectations of measuring microscope performance
A measuring microscope is a versatile instrument featuring highly accurate linear measurement as well as observation functions. This
combination enables detailed inspection of products such as semiconductors, electrical and electronic parts, precision automobile
components, plastic moldings, tools, and medical goods. Delicate workpieces that would be deformed by contact measurement and
workpieces with details too small to be traced by a contact probe can be easily measured.
The essential element of a measuring microscope is an optimum balance of optical performance, accuracy and ease of operation. Objects
that were previously invisible, or only barely visible, can now not only be observed but also measured. We believe that customer expectations
of measuring microscope performance will keep on growing, and this must be matched by ease of use, high measurement throughput and
environmental friendliness. Mitutoyo will continue to deliver high-quality and high-definition measuring microscopes while maintaining our
commitments and beliefs in order to fulfill our responsibility to support fundamental industrial technologies.
In-house design
Mitutoyo designs all measuring microscope main units, optical systems (including lenses), and the digital
scales that are essential for accuracy.
This approach enables a level of support that otherwise would be impossible, and puts us in a position to
speedily comply with our customers’ specific requests as far as practicable.

Top-level Measuring and Viewing
Superlative optical performance
Thanks to a new design of optical tube and modification of the
objective lens specifications, flare that occurs within the optical
system is suppressed as much as possible so that minute details
on the workpiece are clearly shown. In addition, the internal
black finish achieves a high image contrast and clear observation.
The MF-U series is equipped with the established FS system
metallographic microscope head which provides vivid images of high
color reproducibility and features primary-color correction. (The
objective lenses are plan apochromat*1.)
With much higher lighting efficiency in the optical system,
which ensures sufficient illumination intensity, this series attains
high-magnification measurements and a dark-field observation
environment that is efficient and less tiring.
Image brightness is about double compared with conventional microscopes.
*1 Image distortion and chromatic aberration in the wavelength range of the three primary colors (blue, yellow and red) are corrected.

Measuring accuracy approaching JIS level 0

Measuring microscopes must operate at a high level in terms of
measuring accuracy and optical performance.
This series achieves the quoted measuring uncertainty for all
stage sizes*2. We believe that this series, which achieves a large
measurement range and high accuracy at the same time, will help
you in every measurement situation.
The digital scale built into the microscope body is a photoelectric
type transmission linear encoder, with a maximum response speed of
50 m/min. This scale features high accuracy specifications developed
in our underground research facility which is equipped with the
world’s highest scale accuracy evaluation technology.
Mitutoyo acquired the first certification for calibration of line
standards (standard scale of 500 mm or less) in Japan.

Application Range
Observation and inspection of small areas
By using various types of illumination, the MF series can more precisely
reproduce the colors and shapes of objects that are observed and inspected.
The MF-U series microscopes are high value-added instruments that offer
microscope observation functions such as dark-field mode (to observe
surface scratches and small steps, which are difficult to see in bright-field
mode), simple polarization (to observe coloration or contrast through the
polarizer or analyzer using polarization properties), and differential interference (to observe small surface
steps and other elements in color contrast using the polarization filter with a differential interference
prism), as well as measurement functions.

Anyone can easily photograph microscope
images
Anyone can easily photograph microscope images by attaching
a digital camera to the microscope. Because a general-purpose
C-mount adapter is used, any digital camera model that supports
C-mounting can be attached. For example, several people can
simultaneously analyze and evaluate the microscope image displayed
on the monitor, or generation of an inspection chart attached to the
image can be automated.
In addition to taking photographs and printing data can be used to
analyze images, send e-mail, and perform other tasks.
MF -B2010C + Vision Unit
Height measurement with a high focus repeatability
Focus reproducibility is important when measuring a vertical step or other element using the microscope.
In particular, measurement errors due to the depth of focus of the objective lens are inevitable. The MF
and MF-U series measuring microscopes have a focus pilot, which enhances focus repeatability. The
focus pilot is mounted on the TV camera port section in the main unit as an add-on unit* and enables
focusing position detection with high accuracy and repeatability. This realizes higher repeatability than
a visual check and decreases variation in measured values caused by human error. Two types of focus
patterns are available, either of which can be selected according to the size of the part to be focused
on or the surface state, material, or other properties of the inspected object. A clear, bright, highintensity LED (green or red) is employed as the light source. The focus pattern, for which brightness
can be adjusted to any step, can be checked on the eyepiece or TV monitor. This substantially improves
measurement throughput.

Ergonomic and High Performance Design Features
Wide-field observation
The best-in-class eyepiece field number*1 of 24 mm
(for WF10X) offers a wide viewing field that helps
prevent extended observation or measurement from
affecting your eyes or causing fatigue. The WF10X
eyepiece, which was designed at the same time as the
C series, has wider diopter adjustment ranges on the
left and right sides than older products.

(Common to MF C and MF-U C) (for MF C)
(for MF-U C)
An LED or halogen light can be selected for the coaxial illumination in the main unit. While the conventional halogen light can be used for
observation and measurement, the LED light can also be selected if you want to reduce the time lost to replace a failed halogen bulb with a
new one and need high intensity illumination that quickly responds to brightness adjustment.
The LED light has a long working life*2 and will not suddenly fail. In addition, the visibility, brightness and coloration are constant because,
unlike fluorescent tubes, the LED light is free from glare and changes in color temperature. This means less eye fatigue after extended
observation. Because the LED light consumes little power and emits little invisible radiation, measurement is economical, does not emit much
heat, and therefore produces less heat-induced effects on inspected objects. In addition, this light source is impact resistant and does not
contain environmental toxins. Therefore, you can confidently use it for a long time to come. All the models in the MF and MF-U series have
transmitted and reflected illumination aperture-diaphragms as standard to enable observation and measurement with less light diffraction.
*2 The working life will be shorter if the maximum illuminance is always used.

Halogen illumination
High visibility digital display
Because the resolution can be switched to 1 μm, 0.5 μm, or 0.1
μm for the digital display (two or three axes), which is a standard
accessory for all models, high-discrimination measurement can be
performed. The zero set, direction changeover, and smoothing
functions are also standard. (Zero can be set using the switch near
the X or Y handwheel.) Because the general-purpose RS-232C
format is adopted for data transfer, data can be output to a standard
printer or personal computer. It is also possible to output the display
readings to spreadsheet software. The digital display can be installed
on the left or right side of the column.
Front of display
Rear of display
Highly rigid column base
The base that supports the column holding the optical tube and the rest of the microscope must be
absolutely rigid to enable observation and measurement using any amount of magnification. This
series has been repeatedly evaluated from various aspects including a drop test*, transportation test*,
and smoothing test and provides steady vision and consistent accuracy over the entire stroke.
To enhance rigidity, horizontal ribs have been added within the column. The power supply section
is located outside the base to reduce heat effects for higher base rigidity and highly accurate
measurement.
* Proprietary Mitutoyo tests executed using appropriate procedures. Column
Microscope-based high-resolution measurement
It is possible to build a manual image measurement system by
equipping a measuring microscope with the image measurement
option (the vision unit). Because the software constantly transmits
stage displacements, measurements within the camera imaging
range (on the screen) as well as those wider than the screen are
supported. In addition, automatic edge detection provides an
efficient measurement environment with a high throughput.
However, eyepiece resolution might be superior to camera resolution
in some cases. For example, the surface of a molded item made of
black resin might be clearer to the naked eye than to the camera
(monitor observation). Therefore, a measuring microscope that
also enables you to see the surface and other elements is said to be
a system that has a very high added value. It is recommended to
connect the two-dimensional data processing unit QM-Data 200 (a
dedicated control unit) to the measuring
microscope for such dimensional measurement.

The stage movement can be switched between extremely coarse and fine (FREE and LOCK) by using the quick
release handles on the X and Y handles. These handles are useful for freeing the stage when the distance to
the measurement position is long or you want to quickly
return to a reference position.

Because this mechanism uses the twist roller method, switching causes little impact and enables smooth
movement. Because the display zero set switches are located near the handles, you can focus on the eyepiece
during measurement and keep your hand near the handle almost all the time except when adjusting the focus.

MF C-B4020C
Inspected objects vary in size. Widely used in every industry, this series provides many measurement
stroke variations. This series offers a stage for long stroke measurement of 400 × 200 × 220 (X × Y × Z)
mm. This is useful when measuring printed circuit boards, shafts, knife tools and other objects. Although
the standard model has a Z-axis range of 220 mm, the Z-axis can be extended with a column upgrade.
A swivel rotation mechanism is also provided as standard. This mechanism is useful when fixing an
inspected object in parallel with the table movement direction.
Z-axis handles provided on both sides of standard model
MF C
MF-U C
Because the Z-axis handles are placed on both sides of the column in standard models, the user can
easily use one of them regardless of handedness. The digital display can also be installed on either side
of the column to set up an environment suited to the user’s dominant hand. Ergonomics have also been
taken into consideration, and the handle is located in a position where a user of shorter stature can
comfortably turn it.
Tilting optical tube of standard model
(MF-U C )
Comfortable observation is possible because the eye point can be adjusted to a position suitable for
the user’s stature. The angle of the column can be fixed anywhere between 0° and 30°. The reticle in
the optical tube can be replaced.
Sliding nosepiece
(Factory installed option for MF C)
Usually, only one objective lens can be attached to an MF instrument (limited compensation optical
system), and this must be replaced to change the magnification. Because up to two objective lenses
can be attached to the sliding nosepiece, the magnification can be quickly changed when this option is
specified.
Note: An external illumination source cannot be attached.

Lens Options
Naturally it is important that a user does not tire easily, even during lengthy periods of observation or measurement. Therefore these
microscopes incorporate ergonomic design features such as widefield eyepieces (field number 24 for a 10X lens) and good eye relief to
provide a relaxing view so that observation and measurement can be performed with minimal strain. Also, the standard objective lens series
is a low-flare design with a long working distance. The FS objective lens for both BF and BF/DF are plan apochromat.

*To denote your AC line voltage add the following suffixes to the order No. (e.g.: 176-346A): A for

High resolution and long working distance of the objective lens are important factors promoting ease of operation when a microscope is
used for inspection, observation or measurement. To obtain a clear image across the view field, apochromat specifications where chromatic
aberration is compensated (compensation of red, blue, and yellow wavelengths) over a wide range of visible light are important, as are plan
specifications where image surface warp, point aberration and other elements are compensated. FS objective lenses are high performance
objective lenses combining these factors. This series has expanded the application range of microscopes and significantly improved ease of
operation. M Plan Apo series are lenses for BF observation using visible light. BD Plan Apo series can be used for BF and DF observation.
SL (Super Long) specifications are useful when a longer working distance is required. G Plan Apo series are lenses that enable observation
through glass. Glass thickness is compensated for 3.5 mm (2 to 5 mm custom designs are available).

Optional Accessories
We offer options that support the ease of operation of measuring microscopes. A focus pilot that reduces the dispersion of the focusing
point, power revolving nosepiece and power focus unit that enable changing magnification and focusing by hand, a digital rotary head which
digitally measures angles, a rotary table with a fine feed wheel enabling smooth rotational movement of the target, and other options are
highly developed. Choose options such as polarization and differential interference contrast units which support metallographic microscope
observation, TV port adapter for setting the camera required for multiple users to simultaneously perform analysis and evaluation according to
the application.
Focus pilot
Mounted onto the TV port of the microscope main unit as an add-on function, the focus pilot can
detect the focus point with high accuracy and reproducibility. Adjustment of the brightness of the focus
pattern is possible according to the surface condition, material, and other characteristics of the target.
The internal 0.5X optical system enables a wide field of view on the TV monitor. (A separate CCD camera
needs to be mounted.)
Note: Combination of MF-U and FP-05U is a factory-fit option.

Mitutoyo opti-fix
The opti-fix system allows the quick and safe solution of very
different tasks using only a few components. In case of measuring
methods using reflected as well as transmitted light for measurement
of cubic, rotationally symmetrical and especially flat workpieces, the
use of opti-fix is a really practical solution.
Furthermore, the spring clips and centering pins of different design
which are integrated in the system allow also tactile measuring.
Mitutoyo opti-fix offers the user a large number of possibilities for
part fixing, form clamping tweezers for miniature test specimens to
precision vice for large parts.

The innovative, newly developed tool “Mitutoyo opti-fix round“
completes the opti-fix types in the true sense of the word “the wheel
comes full circle".
The circular design allows an infinitely variable adjustment of 360° in
horizontal level as well as in space and additionally, the “pin fixing“
at the sides ensures a user-friendly access to the workpiece.
