Quality Assurance / Research & Development

For  quality assurance of  hard  coating and  to  offer a comprehensive service to our  customers, Flubetech has incorporated   an   optical   3D   measuring   device:   Alicona Infinite Focus   SL.  This  measurement system is  based   on the   technology  of  Focus-Variation  and  combine  the functionalities of  a  surface roughness measurement device and  a  form  measurement system. All  measurements, regardless of  the  application site,  are  characterized by  high resolution,  traceability  and   repeatability.  That  way, Flubetech improves the  quality control of its  coatings while supports customers in increasing the  reliability of their processes.
