"The workpieces look and feel different."
"The surface conditions of a non-defective workpiece and a defective workpiece are different."
Even though there's an obvious difference, what exactly about the workpiece is different?
With the VK-X Series 3D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope, it's possible to answer that question.
Measure multiple samples under the same conditions.
42 roughness parameters are automatically checked for their numerical variances, and the differences are displayed in a graph.
Surface "differences" can be visualised even without an in-depth knowledge of roughness, making it possible to quickly perform surface condition analyses that previously took a long time.
One common problem with measuring instruments is the variation in measurement results caused by the user's skill and other factors.
With laser scanning microscopes in particular, there are various items that need to be adjusted, from setting the upper/lower limits to the light-receiving sensitivity to the laser amount, which means the results can vary depending on the proficiency of the user.
With the VK-X Series 3D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope, many of the settings are fully automated.
All users are able to achieve the same measurement results with no variation from one user to the next.
