How to automate?

Simple teach-in - Simple operate - Simple integrate

Automation is more than the automatic measurement of surface roughness and shape parameters. Automation means simple interaction between administrator and machine operator, intuitive order management, high measuring accuracy as well as simple communication and networking with existing production systems including the connection to an ERP and QM system. Here you will get an overview of the automation options available with Bruker Alicona.

Optical 3D metrology in Medical Applications

Dimensional metrology to increase safety of medical devices, implants and pharmaceutics

Whitepaper optical measurement of implants

Modern implants usually have complex geometries with steep flanks and sometimes high-gloss surfaces. This increasingly presents manufacturers of medical components with challenges in production and in the necessary quality assurance. In addition to roughness measurement, the measurement of GD&T features is playing an increasingly important role. Read in this whitepaper how to meet new metrological requirements with the use of high-resolution optical 3D metrology.

Increased productivity with Alicona Cobots

The knowledge of wear types and wear behavior has enabled Element Six, an expert in high-performance materials, to deliver a step change in performance with a new PCBN cutting material. One decisive factor during the testing stage was the implementation of automated test series. This and the ability to measure tool and workpiece directly in the lathe has made a significant contribution to achieve the performance increase they have set themselves as goal.

Useful information and trends in measurement technology:

Vertical Focus Probing


Vertical Focus Probing

Up to now, the lateral probing of components with vertical surfaces was limited to tactile measuring systems, CT solutions or complex customized solutions. This changes with Vertical Focus Probing. Based on areal measurements, the optical probing of components over the entire surface is possible.

Optical metrology for medical applications


Quality assurance in medical technology

The application areas of  optical 3D metrology are manifold. Users benefit from high-resolution, traceable and repeatable 3D form and roughness measurements in laboratory as well as in production. See how high-resolution optical metrology is used in the manufacture of instruments, implants and other medical devices.
