Profilometer Instruments | Lab Services | Chromatic Confocal | Application Notes

The chromatic confocal technique is ideal for measurement of surface flatness, warpage and planarity on applications where it is often critical such as for micro parts, glass, seals and many others. Because no stitching is needed for large surfaces, the chromatic confocal technique can accurately measure in seconds these in addition to detecting local defects.  With the HS2000, surface flatness can be measured on the full 400x500mm area with less than 1micron of deviation in a very short time.  It is also possible to obtain the best match polynomial of the shape that causes deviation in surface flatness. With pattern recognitions and automation, in addition to pass fail conditions and database communication, the instrument can be used as an advanced quality control tool.
