3D Laser Profiler: Introduction

  • Profilers are measurement devices which are used to measure the surface linearity, component dimensions for any defects or perform quality checks on the objects before the object under consideration reaches into the market. They are also used for inline metrology, part inspection, and part identification
  • In order to improve the degree to which a surface can be measured without having to physically touch the profile being measured, laser profilers were introduced. With the help of 3D laser profilers, the products are scanned in three dimensions thereby displaying form and texture over a large area.
  • Over the past few years, fast and accurate laser profilers have been developed and introduced in the market. Laser profilers use a laser displacement sensor that measures surface topography down to the sub-micrometer level over an area. The Profilers digitize surfaces for mold texturing, conduct in-tray inspections, and provide information for any application that requires accurate large area surface profiling. 
  • Further, they use precision linear motors to help measure a surface area at a rate of one meter per second. While conducting the scan, the device also collects the sample data at a rate of a micrometer per sample. The majority of today’s laser profilers are tied into a desktop computer running the Windows operating system.

Rise in popularity of non-contact measuring technologies

  • Over the past few years, the popularity of non-contact measuring technologies has been rising owing to its advantages such as  high accuracy in the inspection and as well as identification of the products
  • Laser profilers perform contrasts independent inspection of parts to measure height, verify volume, determine presence/absence, and identify surface defects. Laser profilers are increasingly being used by the manufacturing as well as construction industry for the carrying out non-contact measurement of the surface dimensions for any non-uniformities as well as defects        
  • Furthermore, they are preferred for applications where maximum precision of the components are required such as precision mechanics, electronics, medicine, automobiles, and among others. This factor is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of Laser profiler market.
