Improve your coating process with high-class instruments for surface roughness, wettability, and surfactant content

We invite you to our booth (Hall 6, Stand 6419) where our highlights focus on quality control throughout the coating process.

Analyze rough surfaces


Whether your surface must be very smooth, show a certain texture or degree of roughness, our Surface Roughness Analyzer – SRA supports you in optimizing your material or production process. Contactless, quickly, and with an extremely high resolution, the SRA gives you a 3D image of your sample‘s surface and provides you with data which exactly describe its topography. Analyses with the  SRA help you evaluate the contribution of roughness to the wettability of your sample or to the adhesion of coatings.

With its small size and low weight, the SRA can be used at almost any place as a lab instrument, but is also available as a measuring head to be used for automatic processes in the production line.

Optimize wettability: Measure the quality of pretreated and coated parts

Determine the wettability of your pretreated or coated material in no time at all using our Mobile Surface Analyzer – MSA with its Liquid Needle dosing technology.

The Liquid Needle turns the once laborious contact angle technique into an ultra-fast quality control method. The MSA uses it to measure the surface free energy (SFE), which is a perfect indicator for the wettability of the surface by aqueous or organic liquids and far more reliable than test inks. Measurements using templates and automated dosing of test liquids ensure operator-independent results, which can be automatically evaluated using predefined limits.

Our MSA analyzes samples of any size, such as automobile bodies. It provides accurate values even for vertical, overhead, and slightly convex samples. The handy instrument can also detect residues of cleaning agents and is capable of doing 1,000 material tests per cartridge charge.

Improve your coating liquid: Monitor the wetting agent content in electroplating baths

Capture the surfactant content of your coating or etching bath within seconds using surface tension with our Bubble Pressure Tensiometer – BPT Mobile.

The quality inspector using the BPT Mobile knows immediately whether the bath is okay thanks to an ad-hoc evaluation. Moreover, for pro-active adjustment of the bath, it shows the change of results over time.

The instrument, which is independent from the grid or a computer, has a touch display that makes using it as intuitive as a smartphone. It lies well in the hand and is especially easy and safe to operate thanks to the large-sized interface. Programmed measurement templates and the fact that the instrument is insensitive to changing immersion depths provide for user-independent quality control.
