“3D surface roughness, topography, and wear volume measurement.”
Optical 3D surface topography for Mechanical Components and Tribological Research
NanoFocus’ contactless measurement technology is capable of analyzing wear or material characteristics and has a broad range of applications, from tool making to engine development.
A new standard in optical 3D surface inspection.
uSurf microscopes are confocal 3D microscopes that can measure various samples in accordance with international standards including ISO 25178 and ISO 4287. uSurf microscopes are optimized for use in development and testing laboratories where roughness, geometry, flatness, wear volume, and bearing ratios need to be determined. uSUrf microscopes fulfill the highest requirements in the field of non-contact surface metrology, setting a new standard.
Accurate reproduction of the profile of ultra-fine roughness structures was a major criterion of the development of confocal measurement technology. Accurate reproduction is now an essential characteristic that allow uSurf microscopes to be uniquely suited as measurement devices in testing laboratories and quality control.
Quantify and qualify roughness, waviness and wear volume.
At the heart of the analysis is the topographic measurement of surfaces and the quantitative analysis of roughness, geometry, and wear volume. NanoFocus’ contactless and nanometer precise 3D measurement technology, uSurf, is in use by leading manufacturing companies and institutions for evaluation purposes.
Examples of application
uSurf’s 3D measurement systems allow for quality assurance near production lines. uSurf’s 3D capabilities allow samples with awkward characteristics, such as steep slopes, to be measured and return exact and precise 3D measurements in just a few seconds.
