In the printing industry the examination of the surface quality of rotogravure cylinders or anilox rollers is decisive for the consisting quality of the printing products. Inspection by means of the 3D-Volume measuring system µ-surf allows fast and precise surface structure characterization on the shop floor

This newly developed mobile measuring system was specially designed for the surface inspection of large component parts, such as rotogravure cylinders. Due to its compact design with bend optics it is largely resistant to vibrations and achieves a high precision. The motorized x, y-table operates over a positioning of 50 x 50 mm. By means of the computer-based distance tracking, it is possible to use combined measurements series (stitching) along the curved surfaces (e.g. along the circumference of the roll). In addition to roughness evaluation, modern surface analyses can be carried out  to determine the 3D properties (e.g. the volume). In the printing industry, for example the mobile measuring system is used for quality control of chrome rollers and for volume measuring of cells on laser structured (metal or ceramic), engraved and etched rotogravure cylinders. The following measuring values can be determined: length, width, depth, area, screen and volume. The mobile measuring head allows the direct 3D-measuring on large component parts (e.g. rotogravure cylinders) and works according to the confocal measuring method.

As well as the measuring of rotogravure cylinders, the topography of embossed cylinders and anilox rollers as well as Intaglio plates can also be measured determined. Further application ranges are roughness measurements of surfaces (printing cylinders, paper, etc.) as well as measurements on printed structures.
