New generation of tactile microprobes for material surface measurements
For the production of materials and coatings used in modern technology, surface quality monitoring is key: high-value manufacturing requires accurate measurement of properties such as roughness, elasticity or contamination.
Project develops tactile microprobes for material surface measurements in industry.
WP1: Optimization of probing tips
WP2: Development of new large-deflection, high-speed, low tip-wear micro-probes for industrial measurement conditions
WP3: Development of methods for the measurement of surface properties on-the-machine
WP4: Development of measuring methods resistant against environmental influences
VTT MIKES integrates microprobes into roll grinding machines and validates the micro-probe performance by test measurements.
