With the S mart 3D profilometer, it is possible to more precisely measure the volume loss of the wear tracks after the friction and wear tests, since it measures the real shape of the wear track. There are many parameters that are important to study the tribomechanical properties of a surface or a coating such as nano-hardness, adhesion between the coating and the substrate, roughness, thickness of the layers or wear properties. Sensofar’s optical profiler can assess all these properties, as well as being more accurate than other methods of characterization. Finally, it should be noted that the versatility, speed, and ease of use of the S mart profilometer give us the option of using different techniques for corroborating the values obtained.
