Sensofar to Supply GF Machining with Metrology Systems

Photonics Spectra
Apr 2017
BARCELONA — Sensofar Metrology will supply GF Machining Solutions with its custom S neox line of surface metrology systems for the development of advanced nanotexturing methods.

The methods utilize ultrashort pulsed laser, EDM and/or other micro- and nanomanufacturing technologies for the production of technical surfaces that exhibit precise functional characteristics or meet specific aesthetic requirements.

Sensofar’s S neox system platform provides three confocal, interferometry and focus variation measurement techniques in a single sensor head. The move to the Sensofar S line platform follows GF Machining Solutions’ adoption of ultrashort, pulsed laser technology for micromachining. The new metrology systems are needed, first, to reverse engineer natural surface textures down to the nanofeature level and, second, to chart the production process of artificial surfaces manufactured with these textures.

GF Machining Solutions is a provider of machines, automation solutions and services to the tool and mold making industry, as well as manufacturers of precision components. Sensofar Metrology provides high-end, noncontact, 3D surface profilers based on complementary confocal, interferometry and focus variation techniques.
