Surface Metrology

Polytec addresses the surface metrology market with innovative, high-precision, non-contact 3D optical technology that works on rough, smooth and stepped surfaces. These products are based on scanning white-light interferometry, also called coherent or vertical scanning interferometry or coherence radar. With large vertical range and nanometer resolution, Polytec’s TMS products are ideal for determining flatness, step-height and parallelism of large surfaces and structures, of a wide variety of materials.

The TMS-1200, an optical profiler, is based on the industry standard scanning white light interferometry technology and offers wide flexibility with its modular configuration.

The TMS-500 and TMS-100 directly listed below are telecentric in optical design and therefore offer significant advantages to the other technologies. The ability to reach recessed surfaces (~70 mm) while measuring the entire feature without clipping is the first of its kind in this industrial metrology marketspace.

3-D Profilometers for Surface Characterization

TMS-500 TopMap
The TMS-500 TopMap is a high-precision, non-contact topography measurement system designed for fast and efficient surface characterization of precision components Integrate with optional motorized XY stages to measure parts up to 220mm X 220mm in size. Turn-key solution for lab or production environments
TMS-100 TopMap Metro.Lab
Compact table top unit for topography measurement of parts 85mm X 75mm (with optional motorized XY stages).
TMS-350 TopMap In.Line
High speed metrology system ideal for integration in-line for production applications. Delivered as ‘measurement-head only’ option that is sealed and ready to be installed on customer provided gantry/Z-stage architecture.
TMS-1200 TopMap µ.Lab
A high performance optical profiler system that features a very high lateral resolution for measurement of surface texture/finish, step-heights, waviness, wear and plenty more. May be configured with optional motorized XY stage for stitching adjacent fields of view thereby maintaining high spatial resolution and capturing a large area of measurement.
