The chromatic confocal technique provides the highest level of accuracy for volume and area measurement on the widest range of materials. This is because the technique measures a direct physical wavelength linked to a specific height which ensures accuracy of the data. Nearly any material surface can be measured, including textile and highly corroded surfaces, and the highest surface angles can be measured with no need of algorithms. Because testing parameters has no effect on results, the repeatable data is easy to compare from sample to sample and from one instrument to another. With pattern recognition and automation in addition to pass fail conditions and database communication, the instrument can be used as an advanced quality control tool.
