InfiniteFocusSL is a cost efficient optical 3D profile measurement system for easy, fast and traceable 3D measurement of form and finish on micro structured surfaces. Users are able to measure form and roughness of components with only one system. In addition, colour images with high contrast and depth of focus are achieved. The robust frame and the intelligent illumination technology provide fast and high resolution measurement in the laboratory and a production near environment.
The 3D printing market is seeing phenomenal growth in all sectors and its potential growth seems unlimited. The sector has also witnessed growth in the market for finished precision components, particularly in the metal/materials sector.
The nature and criticality of these components — used predominantly in the aerospace and automobile industries — require close tolerances with little room for error, these components therefore require accurate 3D measurement.
Alicona, with its range of optical 3D measurement systems, offer this capability and allow 3D manufacturers to easily and accurately measure these features.
These measurement systems, based on the principle of focus variation, move the focal plane over the surface of an object, this collects 3D data that is then displayed as a 3D model on which measurements can be made.
The systems allow the measurement of surface finish, surface texture, profile and 2D features. Also, the data can be compared against CAD data to further verify compliance with tolerance.
