Roughness measurements

Roughness measurements

When using optical surface measuring devices, the user was previously given the choice of either measuring a profile line with a tactile measuring device or optically and three-dimensionally a small area. By increasing the measuring speed, both are now possible without any problems. Large areas can be measured with the smartWLI systems and significantly higher resolution than a tactile measuring device could even in a single profile line.

Since the software is able to compensate the stylus tip geometry, classic Parameters (Ra, Rz, Rmax ...) can be used and extended with statistical analysis of many thousands of profiles as well as 3D parameters (Sa, Sz, Smax ...).
