Optical Surface Metrology

The need for non-contact surface metrology is growing continuously and spans all industries. No wonder, consistent performance and reliability are essential criteria to establishing oneself in the market and remaining successful in the long term. Even in industrial production, compliance with specified tolerances has to be checked often. This helps to guarantee functionality and ensures that defective parts are eliminated before any further processing steps are taken and that unnecessary costs are avoided.

TopMap Pro.Surf+

The All-In-One-System: TMS-500-R TopMap Pro.Surf+ combines the precision of a white-light interferometer and a chromatic confocal sensor to conveniently measure form deviations plus roughness with one device. TopMap Pro.Surf+ measures large areas with nanometer resolution.

TopMap Pro.Surf

The Surface Specialist: Ideal for quick and precise 3D surface characterization, the TMS-500 TopMap Pro.Surf with its large measurement field does not miss any details. Short measuring times and a large measurement field characterize the TopMap Pro.Surf.

TopMap In.Line

For Production Integration: The compact design of the TMS-350 TopMap In.Line and its very short measurement time allow an easy integration into the production line for a quick and reliable quality control in automated processes.

TopMap µ.Lab

With its high vertical and lateral resolution, the TMS-1200 TopMap μ.Lab sets new standards in non-contact surface measurement. The optical profiler easily measures functional surfaces and microstructures  with nanometer resolution.

TopMap Metro.Lab

Compact 3D workstation: TMS-100 TopMap Metro.Lab is ideally suited to precise measurements of almost any surface. Metro.Lab is the entry level of precise white light interferometry.

From pioneer to  
global leader

The High-Tech Company from Southern Germany

When Polytec was founded in 1967 by the physicist Heinz G. Lossau, the newly established company was the first-ever provider of commercial laser technology in Germany. Building on its success as a distributor, in the 1970s Polytec began developing and producing its own laser-based measuring devices. Being an innovative high-tech firm, the company based in Southern Germany, has been developing, producing and selling high-tech measurement solutions for research and industry for almost 50 years. 

Both yesterday and today, the global standard for vibration, speed and length measurement using laser technology was and is defined by Polytec products. Today, Polytec is the world market leader in the field of non-contact optical vibration measurement with its laser vibrometers. More than 350 dedicated and competent employees on five continents contribute to the high level of innovation and quality for its tailor-made solutions. Whether it’s used in the automotive, aerospace, medical, nanotechnology or mechanical engineering industries, measurements systems from Polytec help companies to stay ahead and build upon their technological leadership.

This claim is also confirmed by an independent body. Polytec has been ISO-certified since 1994, most recently pursuant to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. Its technological leadership is also evidenced by a number of international awards.

It’s here that the success story started: 
the Polytec building from 1967
