Sensofar collaboration in new TracOptic European project

Metrology, News, Technology

Sensofar is pleased, once again, to be part of a highly relevant European project in the field of metrology.
The project is called TracOptic and it belongs to the Euramet call in which only national metrology centers with funding and collaborating research centers, can participate.

Sensofar, as a private company, is willing to support the consortium of the planned project ” Traceable industrial 3D roughness and dimensional measurement using optical 3D microscopy and optical distance sensors” as Stakeholder and will be supporting two project partners who are part of the consortium:


Optical measuring systems have widespread applications in surface and coordinate metrology. These systems are fast, have high resolution, and can operate in contactless and non-destructive mode; aspects which are essential for the factory of the future. However, optical measurements are often not traceable due to the complexity of the interaction between the measurand and measuring system. The project aims to improve the measurement infrastructure to enable the traceable measurement of optical roughness, form and dimension, and develop guidance to end-users, therefore supporting the successful implementation of dimensional metrology in industry.

Sensofar aims to contribute to this project by:

   Expressing the needs in optical measurement of roughness, waviness, form or dimension to the consortium
   Communicating how Sensofar will make use of the outcomes from the research and if the outcomes are still relevant
   Providing test measurements with the S neox system using Confocal, Ai Focus Variation and Interferometry to the consortium
   Contributing with the S neox instrument to comparison measurements
   Contributing to standardization work in ISO25178 committee TC213-WG16
