Scratch Resistance, Hardness, Adhesion

Quantifying the mechanical properties of various functional layers is very important for the glass and optical industry. Study scratch adhesion, scratch hardness, scratch resistance at nano and micro scale.

In-line integrated nm resolution 3D profilometer images transparent surfaces and provides 3D stitched images to comprehensively and conclusively characterize the failures.

Friction, Wear Resistance, Perception, Touch

Perform tribology, friction, and wear studies of glass and optical surfaces with various coatings. Quantify perception, touch, static, and dynamic coefficient of friction under a wide test load range, motion, and controlled environmental conditions.

3D Imaging

Analyze transparent, curved or flat glass, optical, screen, coated surfaces with ease. Characterize the roughness, defects, scratches, and features using our unique optics technology.

Our one-of-a-kind universal profiler combines  4 imaging modes (confocal, interferometer, dark field and bright field) in one head. This provides measurement of any surfaces on the same platform.
