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 measurements of topography, shape and form on unknown and complex surfaces such as soft tissue, plants & rock, small parts and many others. Since no stitching is needed for large surfaces, the the chromatic confocal technique can measure required shape and form data in a few seconds. The resulting data is the best polynomial match for the shape under test. 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 for shape and form measurements.
