IF-Profiler

Optical surface profilometry to measure roughness

The IF-Profiler is a handheld 3D roughness measurement system for high resolution measurement of surface finish. You measure roughness of flat and curved components with only one system. Measurements are performed both profile based (ISO 4287) and areal based (ISO 25178). The measurement system achieves flexible measurements and applications at high measurement speed. Various positions and measurement fields are traceably and intuitively measured. The IF-Profiler is also used to measure geometries with steep flanks and various coatings.

Flexible and easy
to use

The ergonomic design combines ease of
use and requested mechanical rigidity.
A note book, used as Control Server,
enables flexible usage.

Measurement of 
steep flanks

Light coming from different directions is
used to positively influence a
measurement. In addition, the
measurement of the maximum flank
angle is not restricted by the numerical
aperture. Depending on surface, you can
measure up to 87°.

Measure components with varying surface finishes

Due to Alicona’s intelligent lightning technology quick and intuitive measurement of materials with varying surface characteristics or reflections patterns becomes possible. Modulated light provides optimal illumination throughout the whole measurement area.

FOCUS-VARIATION TECHNOLOGY

Focus-Variation combines the small depth of focus of an optical system with vertical scanning to provide topographical and color information from the variation of focus. The main component of the system is a precision optic containing various lens systems that can be equipped with different objectives, allowing measurements with different resolution.
