Shadow-free magnification

Circus LED offers shadow-free magnification with light coming from both sides.

Flexible working positions

Our magnifiers are specially designed to maximize horizontal and vertical movement. They provide significant horizontal reach, and will always stay in the right position without drifting.

The arms are balanced by spring systems which ensure smooth and easy positioning – no knobs to tighten, nothing to adjust.

Flexible self-balancing magnifier arm








The flexibility of the self-balancing arm and friction-free joint between the head and arm makes exact positioning easy. The fully-enclosed neck design is ideal for mechanical, electronics, circuit boards, dental and jewellery and other precision applications.

Importance of light quality

Good lighting reduces the risk of health problems, increases safety, and enhances productivity.

Hence great importance is place on the light quality of our illuminated magnifiers, having powerful luminators with excellent light output. The quality and exact positioning of the light sources in relation to the lens allows for virtually shadow-free magnification and excellent colour rendering capabilities.

Glass lens for superb clarity and comfort

The quality of WAVE LED starts with the high performance optical glass lens means superb clarity. The crown glass lens has a lower refractive index than plastic lens bench magnifiers, which reduces the loss of light in transmission through the lens and therefore less distortion of the image.

Less distortion makes for more comfortable viewing over longer periods of time.
