Stylus and Optical Profilometry Webinars

Breakthrough Metrology Advances of 3D Optical Profilers

Learn about our 3D optical metrology solutions for improving ease-of-use and accuracy when measuring surface finishes on precision machined parts

Accurate surface finish measurement is critical to the performance and functional lifespan of precision machined parts.

This webinar focuses on the features and capabilities that enable our optical profilers to deliver high-accuracy surface roughness measurements with greater ease-of-use for system operators.

Webinar Summary

Viewers will learn more about advanced metrology capabilities including:

  • Measuring surface finishes on precision machined parts with ease and accuracy
  • Achieving sub-nanometer vertical resolution on MEMS and microfluidics, and other large-stepped surfaces
  • Breaking the diffraction limit on patterned surfaces and gratings
  • Protocols for measuring highly-sloped samples >75°
  • Thickness measurements of transparent films (as thin as 100nm)
  • VisionMap software report generation for effective communication of results
  • Data processing with the latest areal s-parameters (ISO25178 compliant)
