Taylor Hobson Intros 3D Metrology Instrument
3D metrology instrument.
Leicester, UK — Taylor Hobson has further expanded the capabilities of its Talysurf family of metrology instruments with the launch of the Talysurf Optics 3D. Based on the established PGI Blu, the new PGI Optics 3D offers the combination of a wider range of part diameters — up to 200mm — with new features supporting 3D measurement. Repeatability can be typically lower than 50nm.

The versatile instrument provides maximum flexibility with measurements possible on optics ranging from small (<2mm diameter) parts with high numerical apertures up to parts of 200mm in diameter with 20mm of sag. This allows the instrument to measure optics used in a range of applications, including Blu-ray DVD optics, cell-phone and digital camera lenses, IR imaging optics, laser diode/LED collimation optics and fiber-optic coupling components.

The new profiler is the instrument of choice for a wide variety of precision-measurement applications. It offers all of the benefits associated with the company's industry-leading reputation for measurement accuracy and brings a new level of dynamic 3D aspheric metrology to both laboratory and production shop floor. Among the instrument's benefits are ease of use and operating efficiency that make it suitable for both the R&D lab and factory floor

environments. Its use in manufacturing offers companies significant potential cost savings.

Its embedded software provides one-click calibration and execution of a sequence of measurements. The instrument includes the capability of complete aspheric analysis of the measurement results that enables users to see the true form of the component without the need for any further measurement analysis. This new automated approach is a significant advancement in instrument automation.
