Bottleneck in the field of metrology - does not have to be! Surface analysis as a service

Ideal for newcomers or companies who rarely (yet) measure, or if it is just tight – the service at FRT. Our experts provide their knowledge to our customers with measurements and analyses.

Metrology has enormous potential for optimization in companies in a wide range of areas. Research and development can be accelerated and the quality assurance can be expanded, a stable and reliable production is ensured. With our “Services” section, you can take full advantage of professional surface measurements for your own products without high investment costs. This is particularly interesting for companies that are concerned with the topic for the first time, have rarely used measuring equipment or the most diverse measuring tasks.

Development cycles are shortened by means of well-founded measurement technology and the right strategy for surface measurement, as crucial parameters are detected more precisely and more quickly. In the production process, minimal inaccuracies and deviations from ideal/prototypes can have far-reaching consequences. If the production result does not meet 100% of the requirements, downstream process steps are adversely affected – resulting in reduced production efficiency and, last but not least, inadequate quality of the final product. Precise surface measurements allow the perfection of functionalities and production quality – as a service, when the demand arises. And also with the market-leading measurement technology, the FRT MicroProf® devices.

As a user of our service you profit from our comprehensive knowledge in the field of metrology by means of optical methods and atomic force microscopy. This includes not only the selection of the appropriate measurement method, the professional execution of the measurements with the most modern FRT measurement technique, but also the evaluation and analysis of the measurement results as well as the documentation and presentation. We create a concept that allows the various measurements to be coordinated meaningfully and efficiently. This ensures an integral solution from a single source that can be adapted and expanded at any time.

If so different parameters such as topography, structure, step height, roughness, wear and film thickness are to be characterized, experts are required. Thanks to our experience, we have a comprehensive know-how in surface measurement. In addition, the software developed over many years and constantly maintained by our programming team is an important core competence of FRT. We not only examine the desired parameters, but also show real problem solving by means of analyzes. This gives you as a customer a comprehensive and high quality surface analysis, which is invaluable in new development, process optimization, quality control and damage analysis. In addition, the experiences and insights gained in service facilitate the selection and use of a suitable measuring system for a planned investment for your individual measurement task.

We certainly have a solution for your specific application. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Our experts will be glad to take care of your needs and work out individual solutions for you.
