The Nomad profiler from Zygo Corporation is a small, lightweight portable optical profiler ideal for situations where the measurement of an object’s surface is too large for the measurement stage of a conventional workstation profiler.
The Nomad optical profiler utilizes Coherence Scanning Interferometry (CSI) measurement technology. This technology offers the benefits of non-contact metrology, sub-nanometer measurement precision independent of field magnification, and the ability to measure a wide variety of surface types including polished, ground, structured, and stepped.
This portable profiler offers improved efficiency with the ability for in-process measurements. The surface of a part can be measured without removing it from the grinding or polishing machine to bring it to a QC lab for measurement. The included docking station enables the Nomad instrument to be used as a desk-top profiler, as well as providing a safe place for unit storage and for changing objectives.
