Optics metrology solutions from Taylor Hobson

Monday, October 26, 2020

Taylor Hobson are pushing the boundaries of both small and large optics metrology. Our instruments have been developed working and listening closely to our many partners in optics manufacturing.    

Large diameter optics – 420mm, 600mm and now 850mm
Working closely optics components manufacturers, now we can offer various of measurement solutions. We can measure surfaces from aspheres through to freeforms for components up to 850 mm diameter.

Freeform analysis capable of working with most types of freeform surfaces including off-axis, toric and true freeforms.

Cellphone lens
Measure the optical surface and geometrical features such as interlock surface roundness, flatness of the flat lens surface and location of the optical surface relative to these features.

HUD - 150 mm
Flexibility allows measurement of non-rotationally symmetric freeform surfaces.

Multi-part analysis
Simple set-up, measurement and analysis of complex arrays. Improved measurement consistency and accuracy with reduced measurement cycle time.


Powerful analysis tools and automated software routines for repeatable high accuracy measurements. 

Product recommendation 

LUPHOScan - Non-contact 3D optics form measurement instrument/profilometer for aspheric surfacesLUPHOScan SD/HD
120, 260, 420 and now 600, 850

Increase throughput whilst improving quality with fast and accurate full 3D surface measurements.

High flexibility allows measurements of surfaces from aspheres through to freeforms for components up to 850 mm diameter.

LUPHOScan SL - Ultra Fast Non-contact, 3D Form Measurement Instrument/profilometer for measuring the optics interlock surface roundness, flatness of the flat lensLUPHOScan SL

A revolution in the measurement of mobile phone lenses.

In a single, fast measurement routine, see the real surface form error in 3D. Measure the roundness and diameter of interlocks with angular relationship to the optical axis and check the wedge and decentre between front and rear faces.
