  • LED Lighting is making a Green impact on Electronic Manufacturing and Repair

    OC White 82400-4-B

    “It’s big. It’s Green. And, it has a clamping arm magnifier!” While this may sound like the legend of the monster that lives under the bed being retold in an elementary school cafeteria, it is far from such a thing. These are the main selling points of O.C. White’s Green-Lite Arm Magnifier, which is one of many LED lighting solutions available from Kimco.

    Clamping onto a table edge, this is not for frying little munchkins below a laser beam – microelectronics businesses have welding equipment for that. (Kimco is still working on finding a laser-beam welding unit. Currently the best tool we have for grossing out schoolgirls while frying bugs with Calvin and Hobbes is Weller’s WX2020 Soldering Station).

    Rather, the Green-Lite Arm Magnifier (O.C. White part number 82400-4B) is a large, adjustable magnifying glass with lights. Even though it is made by a company called O.C. White and painted black, this magnifying unit is green. It features LED lights, which save money when compared to traditional halogen magnifying lights. These LED lights are cooler and use much less energy than traditional lights, and they meet all energy-star requirements.

    This adjustable magnifier also features:

    • The highest lumen output in a lighted magnifier
    • Reduced glare
    • Optical-grade magnifying glass

    Over time, switching to an energy-star approved table-clamp magnifier, like this one from Kimco, will save companies money on both power and light bulbs. Perhaps the savings can be set aside, so businesses can purchase that laser-beam soldering iron, when we find it.

  • Use ESD Inspection Magnifiers For High Confidence in Electrical Assembly

    When working with computers, circuits, electrical cards and other small components it is necessary to make use of an ESD inspection magnifier. This tool helps you to see tiny parts with greater ease and lessens the potential for problems and mistakes.

    At Kimco we carry a great line of different ESD inspection magnifiers in order to help our customers do the best work with their electrical assembly and repair. Within this line is the Aven 26505-ESD Mighty Vue ESD-Safe Magnifer with Clamp. This magnifier features a large 7 x 5.2 in, 1.75x (3 Diopter ) crystal clear lens mounted to a high tech style mar resistant plastic housing with dual light sources. The large rectangular viewing area of the glass enables comfortable viewing with both eyes and provides shadow free viewing.

    It is also ESD safe. This means that the coating on the magnifier does not conduct a static charge and it dissipates a charge if you happen to touch it while charged. An electro static charge can be made quite easily through simple tasks like walking across the floor or repeatedly rubbing your arm against your clothes. The frictions charges the molecules and then can be transmitted to a metal surface. If happens to a circuit board, this can damage it beyond repair.

    Kimco is very proud to offer these, and several other ESD inspection magnifiers in our online catalog. We also have industry low prices with a very fast shipping policy. If you have any questions please feel free to talk with our customer service professionals who would be glad to hear from you and help in any way they can.

  • What Features Do You Look For In Inspection Microscopes?

    03-03-2012-12Whenever inspecting devices you are working on, there are certain things that you will need in order to do so. Among the important things that you will need is a good microscope. The best Inspection Microscopes will depend on the features you are looking for.

    The different features will include the manner in which you want to be able to view the items. It will also depend on the amount of detail that you will need to have. There are different strengths of microscopes as well as different functions which will allow you to complete the tasks that you are looking to complete.

    Handheld Microscopes

    The use of a handheld microscope allows you to be able to have a look at individual items from a variety of different angles. The main problem some find with these is that they will not allow you to be able to use two hands whenever trying to manipulate anything that you are looking at. If you are only using these to inspect items, these are very handy in making it possible for you to gather more information about the different items.

    Digital Microscopes

    Using digital microscopes over the kinds which depend solely on lenses will allow you to be able to see at a much smaller surface area. You will be able to use these in conjunction with a video screen. These will allow you to be able to not only view the item, but to share what you are seeing with a group of people. These are perfect for those looking to show off certain details of a device to a group of people. They are also good when needing to record the images for use in a computer program or for sending files through email to others.
