Free guide on how to: Measurement System Analysis

Every measurement - whether with tactile or optical surface profilers - is subject to uncertainty. The measured values obtained are the basis for quality-controlled production and are thus a key component of quality assurance. However, the correctness of any conclusion drawn by a measurement depends not only on the suitability of the parameter, but also on how accurately and how reliably the measured values reflect the real conditions. Only if the measured value can be determined with a sufficiently small uncertainty in relation to the tolerance of the characteristic, the measurement process is suitable for the inspection task. This paper describes approaches and helpful capability figures of Measurement System Analysis (MSA).

Technical support

Optical measurement systems keep their value even after many years of use. Modularly structured Service will help you to maintain the equipment to be ready for use with its latest technical revision at any time. Therefore please ensure that your Polytec Systems are regularly serviced at your nearest Polytec Support Center. This ensures correct operation after many years in use just as accurately as at the very beginning of its service life. Dependent on your preferences we can perform the Service for your Topography Measurements Systems either onsite at your location or at one of our Service Centers. In the latter case we can even offer to arrange packing and transportation for you. 

You will find Support Centers in Germany, USA, Singapore and Japan. As an ISO 9001 certified partner, we can provide all of the required Service for you. The basic modules of our Service are Calibration, Preventive Maintenance, Repair and Software Updates.


Calibration ensures validity of the measurement results and certifies the Polytec measuring instruments to close the loop with your ISO Standard and QM regulations. The System is calibrated by matching various sensitive signal ratios. Alignment and calibration will be carried out with certified calibration tools which also follow regular traceable calibration procedures in accordance with ISO standards.

Preventive maintenance

Highly sophisticated optical measurement equipment needs some limited, but very precise care, in order to maintain the original equipment specifications and precision. It includes cleaning, realigning of the optics if needed, and if further needed, replacement of worn parts as well as maintenance of the mechanical units and functional tests.


In case a component of your Polytec System unexpectedly becomes defective we can provide fast and reliable repair with original spare parts, including maintenance of the entire system so that everything works flawlessly again. Standard spare parts we provide from stock. To keep your system up to the latest revisions, we supply parts with the latest improvements and firmware revisions included.

During the product life cycle we constantly improve the series and offer hardware or software upgrades. If you need any additional options or accessories for your current instrument, please contact us, as we may also offer suitable upgrades.
