Olympus Eco-Products: SZX7/SZ61, Stereo Microscopes
Realized light-weight, rigid products and saved resources by adopting structural analysis design.
Major Features as ECO-products
A series of stereo microscopes SZX7/SZ61, were developed based on specific product planning and
development goals based on conventional life cycle assessment (LCA) seeking a slim, compact design
through computer-aided engineering (CAE) that lightened weight and increased rigidity. The
SZX7/SZ61 were the first certified Olympus Eco-products marketed.
SZX7 Galileo Optical
SystemSZ61 Greenough Optical System
Use of Lead-free Glass for Optics
Lead-free glass is used for all types of optical glass such as lenses and prisms.
Structural Analysis Design Realizing Light Weight and High
A rigid light-weight microscope was developed based on the rigidity
analysis of basic components such as the brace and its optimal
design through 3-dimensional (3D) computeraided design (CAD) to
reduce the size and weight and the number of components to save
Simulation of CAE Frame Structure Analysis

Environmentally Conscious Design of Accessories
White LED lighting unit
A compact incident-light/transparent lighting unit 1) was developed as an example of
electricity-saving accessories using a white LED as the illumination source to cut electricity
consumption to one sixth that of conventional lighting units and to realize a product life 12 times
longer than conventional products.
1) The lighting stand is not certifiable as an Olympus Eco-product.
