    UltraSurf 5X Overview

    Enhance your optical metrology capabilities with UltraSurf 5X OptiPro’s high precision 5-axis non-contact metrology system. UltraSurf 5X is capable of measuring various precision optical components, from plano optics to spheres, aspheres, cylinders, torics, and freeforms to sub-micron accuracies. The versatility of this powerful and precise instrument gives companies the freedom to perform both non-contact surface scanning and low coherence interferometry on difficult shapes and a variety of materials, including optical glasses, ceramics, crystals, and metals.

    With UltraSurf 5X, you can take advantage of the following benefits:

    • High precision measurements: Granite base and air bearing axes allow for a stable foundation and accurate motion 5-axis air bearing system
      • 3 linear, 2 rotary axes
      • X, Y & C axes position the part
      • Z & B axes position the probe
    • Highest quality air bearings and linear motor technology
      • Linear: 25nm resolution
      • Rotary: Sub-arc second resolution
    • Easy setups: Intuitive graphical user interface for simple instrument operation
    • Fast measurements: Aspheric measurement in under a minute
    • Highly productive: Proprietary software and the use of a variety of sensors allow for multiple feature measurements in one setup
      • Capable of measuring the inside and outside surfaces of hemispherical domes, depending on the probe that is utilized. One measurement with the UltraSurf can capture:
        • RoC of S1 and S2
        • Form of R1 and R2
        • Center Thickness
        • Edge Thickness Deviation (Wedge)
      • Innovative software provides comprehensive 3D and 2D contour analysis, surface figure, and surface texture analysis
      • Perform 2D measurement or 3D measurement by creating a 3D topographical map for correction files
      • Multiple data export formats allow seamless integration with standard optical fabrication platforms.
      • Non-contact metrology significantly reduces the likelihood of workpiece damage during inspection
    • Infinite asphere capability: Accurately measure ANY asphere up to 300mm in diameter
    • Freeform capable: Ability to perform full 5-axis measurements of freeform optics
    • Material flexibility: Capable of measuring a variety of materials, including optical glasses, ceramics, crystals, and metals
    • Ground or polished workpieces: Multiple sensors available at different wavelengths allow for measurement of optics in the ground or polished state

    With a small footprint to optimize floor space and exceptional ergonomics for maximum operating efficiency, UltraSurf was engineered with the customer in mind. Stay ahead of the technological curve, and your competition, with the UltraSurf non-contact metrology system.
