Measurement modes include measuring profiles, object thickness, angle measurement, and cross-sectional areas. The 2-μm-diameter laser beam focuses on the target surface through an objective lens that vibrates vertically at high speed by means of a tuning fork. Beam reflectors from the target surface converge on a light-receiving element in the sensor head. Accuracy is unaffected by the material surface, color, angle, wetness, or irregularity. A built-in microscope gives topographic surface details. Also included is a handheld remote control. Typical applications are in semiconductors, packaging, PCBs, and optics.
