2D or 3D Optical Profiler | Microscope

A full non-contact optical profiler can be integrated on the Tribometer platform to precisely measure the wear track.   In 2D, rapid scans allow for accurate calculation of wear rates from as many 2D profiles as requested distributed across the full wear track. During a single test, it is possible to stop temporarily the test at different time to obtain the wear rate versus wear time.  In 3D, the full volume of the wear track can be obtained for the most accurate wear rate calculation. This 3D image also allows more in depth study of the wear process.   The T2000 can also be equipped with a full line sensor which can scan the full wear track in a few seconds.

The profiler, which has extended capability, can also be used for roughness, dimensions and many other surface topography studies. Additionally, a flexible mobile zoom imaging (T50) capture can be moved by hand to conveniently allow zoom-in microscope capability while recording for play back review. The T2000 can be equipped with a full video zoom microscope and can automatically take picture of the full wear track.
