3D optical microscope system


Bruker announced the launch today of the ContourGT-I 3D Optical Microscope to enhance R&D productivity and maximize manufacturing throughput for industrial applications.

The ContourGT-I has been optimized to accelerate and simplify measurement setup and feature-tracking and is the world's first bench top profiling system to incorporate Bruker's proprietary tip/tilt head design, along with fully automated functionality, including turret, lenses, and illumination.

In addition, the system has been designed from top to bottom for maximum vibration stability and robustness, including a space efficient yet stable footprint with fully integrated air isolation. This combination of features and capabilities enables greater convenience and productivity in a host of markets, ranging from ophthalmics and medical device implants to precision machining and semiconductor manufacturing.

From nanometer-scale roughness through millimeter-scale steps, with sub-nanometer z-axis resolution, the unmatched analysis capabilities and new color camera option establish the ContourGT-I as a new benchmark for bench-top measurement and imaging. The instrument is the latest addition to Bruker's ContourGT® line of 3D optical microscopes. These systems feature patented, higher brightness dual-LED illumination that, when combined with their superior vertical resolution, greatly improves sensitivity and stability. Intuitive Vision64TM provides the industry's easiest to use interface and most powerful measurement and analysis software.
