Profilometer Surface Scanning Tool

QorTek has developed the Agile Tri-Linear Automated Scanning Profilometry Equipment as an affordable solution for engineers and researchers that require ultra high-speed multi-axis imaging capability. The system integrates a proprietary XY raster matrix scanning system and advanced algorithms as to provide outstanding scan rate and scan resolution performance. Featuring an ultra-precise XY stage (<5µm resolution) and incorporating a precision laser micrometer, the resulting tight resolution capability meets all high-speed scanning requirements. The integrated computer controlled software captures measurement data and constructs a 3D representation of the material’s surface from this acquired data. The data can be exported and post-processed to yield other statistical information. The tool incorporates a fully linear adjustable Z-axis setting to accommodate any sample.
