Surface Inspection

Surface measurement technology and contour measurement technology

The function of the components you manufacture depend largely on the surface quality achieved. Determining these and optimizing them with the measurement results obtained is the objective of tactile and optical surface testing. In surface metrology, we use two surface measuring devices and a contour measuring device (contourograph) with the additional option of roughness measurement, with which a contour can also be recorded and evaluated in two measuring directions ("top and bottom"). Radii, edges, chamfers, difficult to access geometries in Turned and Milled parts as well as mold separations(parting line) in plastic parts are measured and graphically documented. Our surface testing capabilities allow us to record standard parameters such as Ra, Rz, Rmax, contact area and others using the profile evaluation method.

Areas of application

Measurement of fine shape deviations of workpieces:

  • Waviness: Deviations with a ratio of wavelength to wave depth of 1,000:1 to 100:1.
  • Roughness: Deviations with a ratio of 100: 1 to 5:1.
  • Standard DIN EN ISO 16610.
  • Thread measurement inside / outside.
  • Parting line in plastic tools.
  • Determine and measure radii and chamfers when gauges are insufficient.


  • Contour measuring device T4 HD, from Triebworx with measuring range 200 x 205 mm (X, Z), 20 mm (Y)
  • Surface measuring device Warp Surf, stationary.
  • Mobile surface measuring device
