The award-winning TrueSurface microscopy facilitates confocal Raman imaging for sloping or uneven samples. TrueSurface ensures that the surface is kept in constant focus, thereby allowing confocal measurements to be performed in parallel with large-scale, topographical analyses. At the heart of this revolutionary imaging mode is the confocalDT integrated confocal-chromatic sensor for optical 3D measurement of microscopic surface topographies. To find out more about this fascinating technology, we spoke with Head of Electronics Development, WITec GmbH in Ulm, Germany, and co-developer of TrueSurface microscopy with confocal-chromatic sensors.

Measuring the height of concrete blocks

Unbenannt-1_web

optoNCDT 1700 laser sensors are being used to automatically monitor the production of concrete blocks. Placed after the block-making machine, the sensors measure the height of the blocks “on-the-fly”. The baseboards serve as the reference distance when calculating the height.
