Sometimes our 44x33 mm large field of view (stitching 230x 220) is not enough or you need specific sample holders or vibration isolation. Sometimes our CST Continuous Scanning Technology with up to 100 mm vertical measurement range is just a piece of your puzzle. Sometimes our <nm resolution topography requires additional insights and evaluation. We offer custom software + hardware + optics as one-stop service, whether custom parameters or implementing measurement routines, we finetune our surface topography solutions upon your specification.

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).
