Scrutinising the surface

Louise Smyth

Finnish company FocalSpec, specialised in devices for fast surface measurement and on-line testing of challenging materials and shapes, and Digital Surf, global provider of Mountains surface analysis software solutions, have teamed up to release FocalSpec Map, a cutting-edge software package bringing a whole new set of tools to users of the Finnish company’s innovative Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) technology.

Customers in a wide range of industries (consumer and mobile electronics, plastics and medical devices to name but a few) now have the ability to visualise, analyse and report on measured surface data in greater depth than ever before.

The following are just some of the tools made available in FocalSpec Map. Characterisation of surface roughness and texture – advanced roughness/waviness filtering techniques – 2D and 3D parameters from Ra to ISO 25178.
Surface geometry analysis - including volume of surface structures (bumps, holes), step heights, contour, etc. Productivity, including quick & easy report generation - analysis routines can be saved as templates and re-applied to batches.
Finally, automated statistical analysis of multiple static and dynamic data populations is possible with process capability evaluation.
