Surface Engineering Applications

There are many applications where surface contact during measurement is not an option; wet films, soft materials are typical. There are others where the surface does not allow for contact measurement due to designed features such as recesses.

The 2D and 3D non-contact measurement solutions from cyberTECHNOLOGIES GmbH have been used in many industries around the world to provide solutions to these and other issues.

With options in light sensor technologies to accommodate soft and hard materials, translucent and transparent films, highly reflective and non-reflective surfaces, most samples can be catered for.

A variety of platforms enable differing solutions when presenting samples to the sensor. Flat beds to 1.8 m square have been supplied, systems to measure round objects, solutions for measuring both sides simultaneously, as well as multiple sensor configurations.

The SCAN CT software suite covers all aspects of setting up, scanning, data acquisition, analysis and reporting, with the additional ASCAN software to provide test and analysis automation for the production line.

Some Application Examples

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a key part of many new processes. The cyberTECHNOLOGIES solutions allow complex surfaces and diverse materials to be measured for many parameters even when the materials are soft or highly reflective. The confocal white light methodology with controllable scanning processes means that complex surfaces can be evaluated effectively and quickly.

Roughness Measurement of Impeller Component

With a series of platforms available, the CT product range is able to assess machined or fabricated items for flatness and surface roughness; simply, quickly and in a fully automated manner. Multiple components or a single very large component can be measured completely, or using step and repeat functions.

Flatness of Hard Disk Drive Component

Many precision devices require control of surface flatness for their effective functioning in the finished product. A feature of the cyberTECHNOLOGIES approach is that definable scanning paths can be set up to provide the most time effective method of assessing the finish on components from a few millimetres to beyond a metre.
