3D Metrology Services – Glass – Surface Finish Inspection

3D Measurement for Glass Components

At EDM Intelligent Solutions, our high-resolution 3D scans of piece parts allow for form measurement down to the µm scale. Surface roughness measurement quantifies the frequency of peaks and valleys in the base material of a surface. With our 3D Metrology Services, we’re able to offer our customers in-depth, non-contact and non-destructive measurements of almost any shape, size, and form.

Below is an example of a Surface Roughness Measurement using 3D profiles to extract roughness data from a piece of kitchenware. The surface roughness inspection and 3D measurements of this component were completed using our MVi5 3D Metrology Center.
