Nomad™ Portable Optical Profiler
Nomad portable optical profiler measuring an 18-inch optic
Lightweight & portable, yet has workstation-level performance
Sits directly on measured surface with non-marring feet
• Eliminates risk associated with moving/handling large parts
• Eliminates challenges of fixturing a bench-top instrument for oversized samples.
A portable optical profiler is the ideal solution for situations where you need to measure the surface of an object that is too large for the measurement stage of a conventional workstation profiler.
Small in size and lightweight, the Nomad optical profiler sits directly on the surface you want to measure. Bringing the profiler to the surface eliminates risks associated with moving/handling a large part and attempting to fixture it for a workstation profiler that was not designed for the task.
Powerful Performance – Portable PackageYou don't have to sacrifice precision for portability with the Nomad profiler. It uses the same Coherence Scanning Interferometry (CSI) measurement technology that is at the core of our workstation profilers.
Benefits of CSI technology include:
• Non-contact metrology: no risk of part damage
• Sub-nanometer measurement precision is independent of field magnification
• Measures not only polished optics, but also a wide variety of surface types including ground, structured, and stepped – regardless of the material.
• SureScan™ technology allows operation in virtually any environment, without the need for vibration isolation equipment
• Mx™ software enables seamless data exchange with other ZYGO Profilers including ZeGage, NewView 8000, and Nexview.
In-Process MeasurementsIn some production situations, there is great potential for improved efficiency by being able to measure the surface of a part without removing it from the grinding or polishing machine to bring to a QC lab for measurement, and then remounting it on the machine. You will gain confidence that the machining or polishing is complete prior to removing the part from the production machine.
The baseplate of the docking station is a Metric Breadboard which allows for easy integration of simple stages, fixtures, etc.
Adaptable to a Wide Variety of ApplicationsThe Nomad portable profiler offers a new perspective on in-process and large sample metrology. The small size and open design make it simple to adapt the Nomad profiler with simple custom fixtures and mounting to accommodate more complex surface applications.
