Surface profiling - also known as surface profilometry - refers to measuring the three dimensional topography of precision surfaces. Although the term "surface profile" has traditionally meant a two-dimensional measurement made by a stylus profiler, ZYGO surface profiling systems make high precision 3D measurements of a surface, all in one shot.

Precision 3D surface profiling can be essential for determining a surface's suitability for its intended purpose. 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 not capable of repeatably producing the quality of surface needed.

Surface profiling or, more accurately, 3D surface profiling, is a general term which encompasses more specific types of measurements such as surface shape, surface finish, surface profile roughness (Ra), or surface area roughness (Sa), and surface texture. The ability to perform surface profiling measurements is critical to maintaining component quality.

Surface Profiling Systems

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