Material types and conditions or the need for 3D geometry may make traditional stylus-based surface roughness equipment inadequate. Non-contact systems provide a high speed, high accuracy, and highly flexible alternative. Using confocal white light or laser interferometry technology, non-contact systems are an excellent resource for R&D, reverse engineering, or specialty applications.
Along with the ability to measure delicate and complex parts, scanning systems provide a visual representation of the part surface. This data allows you to make decisions not only on your part’s measurement data, but also get a true look-and-feel for your part’s condition.
Confocal white light sensors offer non-contact measurement that is impervious to translucent surfaces
Mutli-sensor systems enable non-contact surface roughness measurement to be taken along side of dimensional measurements for high throughput
3D color maps provide visual context to part geometry data:
