The TAGARNO ZIP serves as an ideal entry-level solution for professionals venturing into the realm of digital microscopy.

The TAGARNO ZIP is revolutionizing the world of digital microscopy, offering unparalleled convenience and efficiency for professionals in the inspection industry. Unlike traditional stereo microscopes that require manual adjustment of both eyepieces to find focus, the TAGARNO ZIP employs autofocus technology. This groundbreaking feature automatically focuses on the sample underneath the microscope, independent of the operator’s eye sight or eye level, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual adjustments.

With the TAGARNO ZIP, users can keep their hands on the sample itself, effortlessly turning it around while zooming in and out using either the control box or the included foot switch. This unique functionality allows for smoother and more efficient inspections, enhancing productivity and precision.

The TAGARNO ZIP is the ideal entry product for professionals new to the world of digital microscopy. Its compact and user-friendly design, combined with more than 50X magnification and USB 3.0 connectivity, make it a powerful tool for various magnification tasks that do not require advanced features or software.
