Launch of the Fixed-Focal Machine Vision Lenses M117FM06 & M117FM08

June 26, 2020, Saitama, Japan:

Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City, Japan) announces the launch of two fixed-focal lenses, M117FM06 and M117M08, for large 1/1.7” imagers employed in machine vision, supporting full 6-mega-pixel resolution with a very compact body of 29mm in diameter.

In recent years, megapixel cameras used for machine-vision applications including production equipment, substrate mounting equipment, various test equipment, and various engineering machines are migrating towards a higher resolution. Taking this market trend into consideration, Tamron currently offers an extensive array of mega-pixel machine-vision lenses for 1.1” imagers, 1/1.2” imagers, 2/3” imagers and 1/1.8” 2-mega-pixel imagers.

Additionally, Tamron newly released two mega-pixel lenses supporting 1/1.7” and 1/1.8” 6-mega-pixel imagers with a compact body.

In many cases, some specific production equipment, substrate inspection equipment, and industry-grade printers demand lenses which can be installed in a limited space and assure high resolution and high contrast in close-up wide-angle images.

With this addition, Tamron now offers the widest selection of high-resolution lenses to address customers’ needs more precisely.

Key Features

  • Unrivalled High Contrast and High Resolution in the Industry

The new lenses are compatible with 1/1.7” 2.74μm pixel-pitch 6-mega (max) pixel imagers, while assuring the highest resolution and contrast in 29mm machine-vision lenses.

  • Industry-leading Low Distortion (TV Distortion)

Tamron’s state-of-the-art optics technology achieves drastic improvement in TV distortion compared with previous models.

Specification: M117FM06: -1.5% / M117FM08: -1.0%

  • High Quality Imaging in Close-up Shooting Distance   

The new lens provides high-quality imaging in commonly used close-up distances.

  • Rigid Inspection on High Quality

Rigid inspection is performed to certify resolution from the center to the periphery of images, assuring high-contrast and high-resolution without unbalanced blurring throughout the entire lens view.

  • Rugged Mechanical Design for Anti-Vibration and Shock

Newly designed mechanism improves anti-vibration and shock performance compared with previous models. Even under a severe machine-vision setup with as much as max 10G vibrations and shocks, the new mechanism limits optical (image) deflection within 10μm.

*Vibration frequency 10-60Hz (amplitude 0.75mm), vibration frequency 60-200Hz (acceleration 100m/s2), and number of cycles: 50 cycles.

  • A Commonly used Setscrew is Included as a Standard Accessory

A lock-screw used in previous models can be replaced with an embedding-type setscrew, reducing the diameter of the lens barrel for further compact installation.
