Zygo Corporation has announced its latest generation of ZeGage 3D optical profiling instruments, which provide precise, rapid, non-contact measurement of surface topography for quality and process control.

The company said that the two new models, ZeGage Pro and ZeGage Pro HR, offer up to two times the improvement in data points, a 50% larger maximum field of view and increased measurement speed with simplified setup when compared to previous generations. The ZeGage Pro systems maintain a small footprint, with versatile performance and ease of use. The new system's large field-of-view, combined with optional automated part staging, allows large components to be measured quickly and easily in most environments.

At the core of the ZeGage Pro 3D optical profiler is Zygo's Mx software platform. This comprehensive user-friendly control and analysis platform supports a broad range of surface metrology applications and data analyses. The rich suite of features includes results compliant with ISO 25178 and 4287, image stitching and automated measurement patterns. The ZeGage Pro profilers expand this offering with unique features such as Zygo's exclusive fast focus, part finder and smart setup tools.

Built on Zygo Corporation's more than 40 years of 3D optical inspection and metrology expertise, the ZeGage Pro and ZeGage Pro HR systems are precision-manufactured at Zygo's U.S.-based global headquarters.
