Optical metrology for consumer electronics

Quality inspection with utmost precision

Utmost precision is required in manufacturing consumer electronics products, such as mobile phones, tablets and displays. The interplay of a wide variety of materials and the complex geometries of these products are the key quality assurance challenges. 3D metrology helps the consumer electronics industry to master these challenges.


By using our non-contact optical sensors you can measure the gap between the glass and housing of a smartphone and the flatness of display glass and inspect step heights, edges and PCB coatings to within a few µm.

As Precitec’s CHRocodile CLS chromatic confocal line sensor scans with up to 192 simultaneous measuring points, it covers much larger surfaces than a conventional point sensor in the same time. The CHRocodile 2 IT series carries out thickness measurements of layers  as thin as 0.6 µm at a measuring rate of up to 70 kHz. By combining the IT series with Precitec’s Flying Spot Scanner, you can measure the distinct profiles of relevant components along predefined scan paths in a significantly shorter overall time.

For mass production lines in the consumer electronics industry, it is not just high precision and speed that are required of optical sensors but also the ability to measure inline. That is why the CHRocodile CLS is the ideal solution for manufacturers of electronic components – and it additionally gives them a huge productivity advantage.

In the consumer electronics field we have a lot more to offer …

... as multiple production steps are commonplace here. Our laser welding and cutting technology also supports fully automated production systems in meeting the highest quality requirements.
