Metrology - calibration

Surface topographical measurements on every material, with or without contact


You want to precisely characterize and control the surface of a complex shape part in order to:
• control manufacturing parameters, for instance grooves, low-amplitude defects, bottom of cavities, coating thickness
• record the depth of corrosion defect
• follow the evolution of surface wear
• understand a tightness failure
• measure a material which does not allow contact (plastic material deformation, scratches)
You need advice to identify the most relevant measurement criteria.


• compliant with the current ISO 25178 standard and the future standard for 3D surface measurement which defines criteria for topographic measurement, our CLI2000 measurement station uses various with-or-without-contact sensors and make fine measurements with a very high resolution (only a few nanometers). Measurement volume is 200x200 x300mm. The topography of the part is shown in real-time.
• the asset of 3D: 3D simplifies your understanding of phenomena related to surface state: scratches, shocks, flatness, burrs...
• data can be rendered in the form of tables and charts, which enables you to quickly analyze results


• As independent, neutral and objective experts, Cetim specialists guarantee the best method and quick results
• you have access to Cetim’s unique metrology equipment level and also resources in traditional or innovative non-destructive testing
• you can enrich your expertise with an analysis and redesign work in collaboration with Cetim experts
