• VK-X1000 Series

  • Surface Roughness - Profilometer

    • Profile, roughness, and film thickness measurements
    • Nanometer resolution
    • Material and shape independent
    • Fully automatic measurement & analysis
  • What is a laser scanning confocal microscope?

    Laser microscopes can perform non-contact profile, roughness, and film thickness measurements over an area with nanometer-level resolution on any material or shape.

  • No Material Restrictions

    Contact profilometers can damage the material being measured or are unable to provide data on certain materials and surfaces, such as glass, soft plastic, or surfaces with steep angles. The VK-X is captures full surface data, regardless of the material or sample shape.

  • Line vs. Surface Data

    Profilometers are limited to capturing a single line of data, providing a limited data set for the user. The VK-X captures full surface data on any material, enabling users to understand their sample in more detail, and make more-informed decisions.

  • Ease-of-Use

    Simply place your sample on the stage, click measure, and the VK-X1000 will automatically scan and measure your sample. Our advanced analysis software will automatically analyze the data and recommend key roughness parameters to evaluate. No more fixturing or sample prep required.

  • Steep Angle Measurements

  • Automatically Compare and Analyze Multiple Surfaces

  • Capture Full Surface Data

  • Measure Anywhere on the Surface
