A fully automated, fast and accurate system for freeform optics measurement




The new Form Talysurf® PGI Freeform is a versatile, high resolution system dedicated to the measurement of high precision freeform optics. Providing 3D raster / radial measurement and analysis of:

•  Spheres     • Diffractives
•  Aspheres   • Freeforms

The Form Talysurf® PGI Freeform can work with many of the latest equations used for definition of freeform surfaces such as:

• Toric                    • Bi-conic          • Anamorphic asphere

• Ellipsoid               • NURBS          • Zernike

• Cloud of points

Measurement integrity and reproducibility

Taylor Hobson’s Form Talysurf® PGI Freeform is underpinned by decades of measurement experience, ultra-precision manufacturing expertise and FEA optimized design. These provide low noise and near flawless mechanical execution of the measuring axes.

With the new dedicated software interface, accurate freeform measurements are easy to set-up and analyse. The versatility of the Form Talysurf® PGI Freeform makes it the complete optics metrology solution.
