Surface Roughness

How Bruker’s surface roughness metrology ensures the proper function of products and safeguards product quality at nanometer-level accuracy

Many industrial applications require surface roughness information to ensure proper function of end products. Fast and accurate measurement and monitoring of surface roughness is crucial to safeguard product quality of automotive applications such as brake shoes and pads, friction plates, or sealing shafts, as well as electronics and semiconductor applications such as lead frames or copper panels.

Bruker offers ISO and ASME standard roughness computations according to ISO 4287, 4288 for 2D roughness applications and ISO 25178 for 3D applications. Our instruments are equipped with an easy operator interface and password-protected hardware setups for ease of use on the production floor.  They provide users with trusted results of gage-capable metrology – in the fastest possible time.
