Tamron announces the launch of Five New Models for Compact φ29mm Machine Vision Lenses compatible with 1/1.7" Imagers and Full -6-Mega Pixel resolution (M117FM series)
Tamron Co., Ltd.
December 1, 2020, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City, Japan), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, currently offers an array of industry-leading* φ29mm compact-size fixed-focal lenses, M117FM series, compatible with 1/1.7” imagers and full 6-mega pixel resolution, for machine-vision applications. On December 4, five new models, M117FM12 / M117FM16 / M117FM25 / M117FM35 / M117FM50, will be released to support the growing needs of applications.
Mega-pixel cameras used for machine-vision applications including production equipment, print circuit board mounting equipment, various test equipment, and various machine tools, are migrating toward higher resolution.
Tamron currently offers a variety of mega-pixel machine-vision lenses with 30 different models compatible with 1.1”, 1/1.2”, 2/3”, 1/1.7” and 1/1.8” imagers.
Currently, rapid growth is expected in the use of machine-vision lenses compatible with 1/1.7” and 1/1.8” imagers of 6-mega pixel resolution. To meet the need, Tamron’s M117FM series is added with five new models. The new M117FM portfolio, in addition to the two models currently available (wide-angle 1/1.7” 6mm F/2.4 (Model: M117FM06) and 1/1.7” 8mm F/2.4 (Model: M117FM08)), offers a total of seven models to meet the requirements of a wide range of field of view in machine-vision applications.
The expanded lineup of compact-size M117FM models, with an outer diameter of φ29mm, offers an optimum selection for all machine-vision applications, and assures compact size, high-resolution, high-contrast imaging for all shooting distances including up-close distances.
Tamron develops industry-leading high-resolution fixed-focal lenses that address customers’ critical requirements and needs in all machine-vision applications and pursues optical performance that assures distinguished fidelity in all image details with excellent user utility.
New mechanism improves anti-vibration and anti-shock performance compared with previous models. Even under adverse conditions, the new mechanism suppresses the impact of vibration and shock of up to 10G of magnitude, and limits the optical (image) deflection within 10μm.
*Vibration frequency 10-60Hz (amplitude 0.75mm), vibration frequency 60-200Hz (acceleration 100m/s2), and the number of cycles: 50 cycles.
