FEATURED EGUIDE
Advanced tolerancing techniques for endoscope optical design

Endoscopes are extremely sophisticated medical instruments that are increasing in sophistication and usage.

To be effective, endoscopes need to capture images of the highest quality, be capable of a wide range of motion, and be impervious to biological fluids, disinfectants, and sterilization at high temperatures. Download this case study to learn how Henke-Sass, Wolf, an international leader in the design and production of endoscopes and other medical and veterinary instruments, used Zemax OpticStudio to build higher-precision endoscopes with improved final image quality.
