Bruker Corporation and Digital Surf today announced that Bruker Nano Surfaces is offering Vision64 Mapdata analysis and reporting software with its entire line of 3D optical microscope systems. Vision64 Mapis is an extension to Bruker’s Vision64 instrument control and analysis software, and is based on Digital Surf’s Mountains Technology software platform. 

The new software opens up streamlined access to automated reporting of advanced surface measurements in 11 languages, while ensuring compatibility across a range of industry norms. Vision64 Map enables more comprehensive 3D surface visualisation and analytical data with Bruker 3D optical microscope systems. A complete user workflow is now available, including automated data acquisition and advanced data analysis, followed by powerful data visualisation and reporting. Multiple image enhancement tools provide the best representation of detailed features of interest.

The software is powerful enough to give power users access to advanced, customisable functions, yet it is easy enough to use for production monitoring on manufacturing floors. For example, users can easily plot measurement results from a number of samples and set upper and lower critical limits for trending analysis and production control. The software also allows users to characterise surfaces in accordance with the latest metrology standards, including ISO, ASME B46.1, DIN, JIS and their equivalents in other geographical regions of the world.

“We are excited to collaborate with Digital Surf on Vision64 Map to create measurement software that makes the most of both of our proprietary technologies,” said James Earle, Vice President and General Manager of Bruker’s Tribology, Stylus and Optical Metrology Business. “We have a long tradition of providing the industry’s top metrology, automation and analysis solutions. Integrating Digital Surf’s ability to seamlessly translate data into complete reports tailored to specific regions and standards requirements creates the ultimate value for our customers.”

“Digital Surf has been working with leading metrology manufacturers, laboratories and standards committees from around the world to develop software that takes the fullest advantage of the imaging and measurement data today’s precision instruments acquire,” added François Blateyron, Chief Operating Officer of Digital Surf. “Our partnership with Bruker and their industry leading profilers is another step in this endeavour, giving operators and industrial engineers truly one-stop surface metrology solutions.”
