The NPFLEX-1000 floor-standing white light interferometer (WLI) offers the most accurate and flexible solution for evaluating nano- to macro-features on large parts in precision machining QA/QC. Key features include a large form-factor open-gantry, robust bridge architecture, and swivel head design with 300 mm of distance between stage and objectives. This exclusive design allows NPFLEX-1000 to accomodate the widest variety of sample sizes and shapes and access the most challenging orientations.
With this unique design, combined with the ease-of-use advantages of our next-generation optical profiler technology, NPFLEX-1000 delivers gage-capable surface texture and roughness measurements with the throughput and repeatability operators need in dynamic sectors such as automotive, medical, and large-scale additive manufacturing.
The NPFLEX-1000 delivers the most accurate and repeatable surface texture and roughness metrology for almost any precision manufacturing application.
The NPFLEX-1000 delivers a unique range of critical advantages:
The NPFLEX-1000 delivers ultimate sample-size freedom and the unique ability to measure high-slope surfaces and difficult orientations on large parts thanks to Bruker's most innovative and exclusive technology, including:

The NPFLEX-1000 offers extreme usability at uncompromising speeds, enabling critical improvements in throughput for production environments.
Key features include:
Whenever tight control of environmental factors is not possible, the NPFLEX-1000 still maintains excellent reproducibility thanks to its integrated vibration isolation and self-calibration. A built-in reference signal laser interferometer continuously calibrates the temperature to account for environmental influences and to always ensure high accuracy and reproducible measurements, ideal for applications that require absolute long-term stability.
The flexibility of the NPFLEX-1000 is designed to answer the roughness and surface texture measurement questions that arise in precision machining QA/QC for sectors such as automotive, medical, and large-scale additive manufacturing. Some of these QA/QC studies include:
NPFLEX-1000 is powered by Vision64 software, the industry’s most functional and user-friendly graphical interface. This full-featured software includes:
The Advanced Find Surface feature enables any user to obtain quality results regardless of operator experience level, even in multi-user environments.
It not only enables auto-focus, but also adjusts key illumination parameters such as the intensity of the LED ring light. This allows uncompromised metrology on varied material surfaces with improved user experience, extreme operator ease, and faster time-to-result.
Between the easy-to-use VisionXpress™ interface with its standard test library for multi-user environments, the award-winning full-featured Vision64 interface for advanced setup and automated analysis, and the Advanced Production interface for ultimate automation with minimal user intervention, you can select the most suitable solution for your unique metrology needs, without compromise. This unique capability enables uncompromised metrology on any surface, with increased throughput.
The adaptive surface intelligence of USI mode automatically adjusts algorithm parameters for optimum results on different surface textures in the same field of view, even on surfaces with differing contrast, intensity, and heights. This ability to automatically sense the type of surface and provide the most accurate areal metrology makes it one of the easiest and most robust measurement methods for almost any surface, transparent to opaque, with a vertical range up to 120 µm.
