Shape / Profile
When selecting a sensor for 2D measurements, the first step is to choose a method for generating a profile of the target. This can be performed by scanning a 1D sensor over a surface, using a laser line, or working from a 3D image. The target material, shape, and size will all play a role in determining the best fit. Check out some typical methods below, or request a free consultation with a measurement expert.
Measure fine details on touch panels regardless of surface finish with confocal sensors. With a beam spot of 3.5μm, even the smallest features can be measured.
Confocal Displacement Sensor
Profile tire treads and sidewalls with multiple 2D laser profilers.
High-speed 2D Laser Profiler
Measure the step height of features on a wafer after etching. With 3D interferometry, mirrored surfaces can be measured accurately.
3D Interference Measurement Sensor
Using 2D thrubeam sensors, medical balloons can be inspected inline at high-speed.
