Surface measurement - also known as surface metrology - refers to measuring the topography (or surface roughness) of precision surfaces. Surface measurement can be essential for determining a surface's suitability for a particular application. Component failures can often be traced back to a precision surface that was not manufactured to specification, either due to an improperly set up machine or use of a process that is not capable of repeatably producing the quality of surface needed.

Surface measurement is a general term which encompasses more specific types of measurements such as surface shape, surface finish, surface profile roughness (Ra), or in surface area roughness (Sa), surface texture, and structural characterization. The ability to perform surface roughness measurements is critical to maintaining component quality within predefined limits.

Surface Measurement Systems

3D Optical Surface Profilers from ZYGO are white light interferometer systems which offer fast, non-contact, high-precision 3D surface measurement and surface roughness metrology. You get advanced data analysis on either platform. Choosing the right surface measurement system depends on your application's requirements, including precision, speed, automation, configuration flexibility, and vertical range.
