Bruker ContourX 3D Optical Profilers

Bruker ContourX is a new range of next-generation benchtop 3D optical profilometers. The white light interferometry (WLI) platform delivers gage-capable surface texture and roughness metrology in R&D and manufacturing.

  • New USI universal scanning mode: Automatically determines measurement parameters for best metrology results.
  • Advanced PSI mode: Lower-noise measurements and best-in-class, sub-nanometre Z resolution.
  • Large area stitching: Collect 1000 high-resolution stitched fields with a 5MP camera and new stage design.
  • 1200 x 1000 measurement array: Lower noise, larger field-of-view and higher lateral resolution

As well as hardware developments, the software has also been enhanced with a new, intuitive VisionXpress interface that makes it easy to access the full power of Bruker’s award-winning Vision64 analytical software. It’s ideal for multi-user environments. The latest version of VisionMAP software offers customisable reporting and advanced analysis capabilities.

Starting with our original Wyko instruments and continuing over four decades of innovation in high-precision surface metrology and imaging, Bruker’s optical profilers have become known for the best Z-axis resolution, independent of magnification, as well as the fastest measurements with the largest fields of view on the most difficult surface geometries. By continuing to push the envelope of what this technology can do, the ContourX systems offer previously unattainable measurement capabilities in a benchtop form.

The range is designed for convenience and productivity in a range of research and industrial applications that require high accuracy:

  • New material structure research
  • Manufactured component characterisation
  • Medical
  • Automotives
  • Aerospace
  • Precision machining
  • Cosmetics
  • Semiconductor manufacturing
  • … and more
ContourX is truly a leap forward in surface measurement performance, particularly in light of our new USI mode. These systems will be the new benchmark for productivity and nanoscale surface roughness and topology measurements for academic research, industrial R&D, microelectronics, optics and sensors.
