Tribology : 3D parameters of surfaces
Surface metrology plays a significant role in for the interaction and wear of engineering surfaces, where not only profile measurement is important but also topographical measurement.
For this purpose, new 3D surface parameters are used increasingly to describe the surface, which presents new challenges for the resolution and speed of metrology systems.
With the confocal microscope, the SolarSurf topographic 3D measurement of tribological surfaces has become possible.
Combining these acquisition capabilities with its data analysis software for 3D surface parameters, the SolarSurf? represents a complete tool for the evaluation of surfaces in tribology. And to make sure that the customer’s concerns are continuously addressed, Solarius Development works closely with competent partners in research and production.
The SolarSurf? profiler allows for measurement of stress, wear and other form features on both plastic and metal surfaces.
