Portable Profilometer

Jr25 Portable Profilometer Gets New Design!

The Jr25 is the first truly portable high performance Profilometer of its kind. With an optional battery pack and carrying case, the Jr25 provides measurement capability during field studies. To enhance user convenience and control the entire portable profilometer frame has been extended as gripping handles.

Wood Wear Testing

Wood Wear Testing Using Tribometer

In this study, we simulated and compared the wear testing behaviors of three types of wood to showcase the capacity of Nanovea Tribometer in evaluating the tribological properties of wood in a controlled and monitored manner.

Profilometer For Large Area Measurements


Meet the ST500 Profilometer. After years of success with the ST400 and HS1000 Nanovea introduces the ST500 providing high speed large area measurement without stitching. The ST500 has a 400 mm X-Y Axis Travel, a 50 mm Z Axis with a maximum speed up to 200 mm/s. The system can be equipped with either an optical pen or line scanner for ultra fast measurement (384,000 points per second). Unlike other technologies, each point is a direct, full depth of field during large area measurement without the need of refocusing. A video zoom camera can also be used to provide automatic function to large area measurement complete on a desktop user friendly platform. See app note for example.



The High Load Tribometer is designed with high torque capability for loads from 0.5N to 500N. A large coated 20mm steel plate ensures stability and durability of the system. The high load system has been designed with a continuous stiff arm to ensure accuracy at these high loads. Friction is measured directly with a load cell directly in contact with the arm. This model offers high accuracy for applications with high loads and friction forces. See app note for testing example.
