The HD9800+ 3D Large Format Surface Profiling System is the world's most advanced optical profiler for in-line data storage slider metrology. The system combines the gauge-capable optical characterization technology with advanced automation to enable optimized PTR and flatness measurement performance. HD9800+ incorporates decades of industrial HD metrology experience using white light interferometry (WLI), self-calibration, LED high-intensity illumination, operator-friendly software, and a host of other features to provide the robust, high-resolution, non-destructive performance that data storage manufacturers need to improve process quality and increase yield.
The HD9800+ system’s vibration-tolerant design, integrated air isolation, and production-friendly architecture driven by industry road maps maintain measurement integrity during production floor usage. It’s high-resolution camera delivers the ultimate in lateral resolution and accuracy, and a wide range of hardware and analysis software features designed specifically for advanced process control result in the fastest and most gauge-capable system for data storage slider applications.
HD9800+ provides the fastest, most accurate 3D measurements for slider pole tip recession (PTR) and slider bearing surface flatness. The system also continuously calibrates to an internal, primary standard, eliminating the need for regular calibration to step heights. This self-calibration ensures long term stability and correlation, and significantly reduces qualification time. The ultimate result is the most accurate industrial metrology performance with the best reliability and serviceability on the market.
HD9800+ is available with a host of optional enhancements to tailor performance to your facility’s specific requirements:
