Profilometer Instruments | Lab Services | Chromatic Confocal | Application Notes

With a wide height range up to 25mm and the capability to measure steep angles, the chromatic confocal technique is ideal for many surface profile dimensional measurements including applications such as micro lenses and precision tooling. Because no stitching is needed for large surfaces, the chromatic confocal techniqu can be used to measure dimensions in seconds with a single profile. 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.
