A new general-purpose 3D metrology tool for offline and at-line uses, the FocalSpec 3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA, is now available. The UULA is based on the company’s patented Line Confocal Imaging technology, which can enable high-speed 3D imaging of surfaces that are difficult to measure. With UULA, parts and assemblies having highly reflective, mirror-like, transparent, curved and sloping surfaces can reportedly be scanned in seconds at sub-micron resolution.

Quality control, failure analysis, and research and development of products containing polymers, metals, glass, composites or other materials can benefit from this recipe-based tool. Applications include imaging of 3D form and dimensions; surface roughness and texture; etched, embossed and printed 3D features; flatness and thickness; mold parting line flash and burr; dispensed adhesive, polymer and fluid shape and volume; and heat seal integrity.
