Develop methods for inspecting and verifying surface texture

Expert Consulting Service

Today, measuring is no longer a problem; the question is what and how to measure. From only being able to measure surface texture with a stylus in contact, there are now several measurement methods available. In the latest ISO GPS standardization, both contact and optical methods are included and can be used to control and verify the surface texture of products. Soft as well as hard, matte as high-gloss polished, and even transparent materials can be measured. We assist you in finding the right measurement method so that you can perform accurate measurements with traceability to ISO GPS.

Analysis and Measurement of Product Functional Surfaces

Expert Consulting Service

What makes the product function and look the way it does?
We are experts in measuring and analyzing all types of surfaces. By identifying the right scale for measurement and parameters that characterize surface deviations, the designer can understand what affects the product's functionality and appearance, as well as how the surface should be measured.

Controlling Manufacturing Processes

Expert Consulting Service

During manufacturing, surface deviations always occur, affecting the surface quality of the product. To control and manage these surface deviations in production, specific parameters and measurement techniques are required. Toponova assists in identifying the right parameters and measurement methods to be used in production.
