How to automate?

Simple teach-in - Simple operate - Simple integrate

Automation is more than the automatic measurement of surface roughness and shape parameters. Automation means simple interaction between administrator and machine operator, intuitive order management, high measuring accuracy as well as simple communication and networking with existing production systems including the connection to an ERP and QM system. Here you will get an overview of the automation options available with Bruker Alicona. 

Alicona InfiniteFocus

Optical 3D metrology Medical Applications

Dimensional metrology to increase safety of medical devices, implants and pharmaceutics

Optical metrology for medical applications


Quality assurance in medical technologies

The application areas of Alicona optical 3D metrology are manifold. Users benefit from high-resolution, traceable and repeatable 3D form and roughness measurements in laboratory as well as in production. Applications in medical technology include:

  • GD&T measurement and parametric inspection of bone screws and bone screw drivers
  • How to achieve form and roughness measurements of the implant's surface, even on steep flanks and at the groove ground of the implant's thread
  • How to numerically verify stability and biocompatibility of implants
  • Full form and cutting edge measurement of surgical drillls, bone milling cutters and other surgical instruments and much more...

Increased productivity with the Alicona Cobot

The knowledge of wear types and wear behavior has enabled Element Six, an expert in high-performance materials, to deliver a step change in performance with a new PCBN cutting material. One decisive factor during the testing stage was the implementation of automated test series. This and the ability to measure tool and workpiece directly in the lathe has made a significant contribution to achieve the performance increase they have set themselves as goal.

Useful information and trends in measurement technology:

Vertical Focus Probing

Vertical surfaces with more than 90° can now also be measured optically with the optical coordinate measuring system µCMM.

µCMM Webinar

In this webinar you will learn how dimension, position, shape and roughness of complex geometries can be measured with only one sensor. Furthermore, you will receive information on the latest development of the core technology focus variation - 3D hole measurement.

Focus-Variation in Comparison

In comparison to alternative optical technologies, Focus-Variation closes the gap between typical 3D coordinate measuring technology and classical surface metrology devices.
