Built on three decades of proprietary Wyko® white light interferometric (WLI) hardware and software technology innovation, Contour Elite systems patented tip/tilt in the head, high-fidelity imaging capabilities, patent-pending illumination design, and proprietary software algorithms for data processing, analysis and visualization. A large field of view and objective magnifications from 0.5X to 230X provide characterization over an extremely wide range of surface shapes and textures. Industry-leading Vision® software comes standard with each system, and optional R&D 100 Award-winning AcuityXR® measurement technology enables the systems to break the diffraction limit.
The Contour Elite microscopes are available with an automated 150-millimeter (6-inch) stage or a 300-millimeter (12-inch) stage. For cylindrical samples there is also an option for a roller stage that can be used to rotate the parts to acquire surface data.
