  • Overview +

    Following its first release in 1984, the Form Talysurf quickly became the number one tool for optics manufactures in measuring aspheric form error. Since then, we have installed thousands across the globe becoming a true industry standard. 

    Our patented PGI (Phase Grating Interferometer) technology enables you to measure large sags with short length styli. This enables us to combine very high stiffness and low force offering much greater accuracy and repeatability than our competitors. 

    The Form Talysurf PGI Optics offers premium optics metrology packages designed to optimise performance and enhance your manufacturing capability. We offer a large range of instrument sizes and software packages to optimise your measurement needs as well as your budget
