Global Statistics Representing 3D Optical Profiler Market Scenario
Optical profiler is a modern interference microscope. It used for a precision form of error measurement and height variations such as roughness of surface by using a wavelength of light as a ruler. It is a fast, non-destructive, and contact or non-contact surface metrology technique where metrology stands for the scientific study of measurement. It can measure micro and nano-surfaces and capture up to two million data points within a few seconds by using the high-resolution camera. 3D optical profiler can be used in a range of applications such as automotive and precision machines, consumer electronics, aerospace and defense, optics and photonics, and micro-manufacturing and nanotechnology.
Increased use of 3D optical surface profiler in automotive and aerospace industries and the inability of traditional measurement devices to address manufacturing-related issues has fuelled the growth of the 3D optical profiler market. Rising need for short development cycles of automotive models, high-cost pressure and stringent government norms on vehicular population have forced the manufacturers to develop advanced technology to overcome the problems such as long development cycle. 3D optical profiler systems help to speed up design and simulation for shorter development cycles. 3D optical profiler offers many benefits over other traditional measurement devices used for non-contact inspection of semiconductor packaging, industrial process, research, and control. These benefits of optical profiler over traditional measuring devices ranges from rapid measurement speeds and custom analysis to non-destructive inspection and fully automated measurements. With the evolving trends such as the internet of things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, automation manufacturing in industry verticals has been increased, and end users are constantly investing in inline metrology solutions and in profiling to minimize the inspection delay in the production process.
