New ZMorf Surface Imaging And Metrology Software For Zeta Instruments Optical Profilers

(Nanowerk News) Zeta Instruments and Digital Surf announced that Zeta Instruments is offering ZMorf Surface Imaging and Metrology software with its Zeta optical profilers. ZMorf is based on Digital Surf's industry-standard Mountains Technology® software platform. The software provides powerful 3D surface imaging and analysis coupled with automated metrology reports and full data export for specific applications.

In ZMorf real time 3D imaging of surface topography at any angle and zoom level can be combined with color image overlays to speed up the identification of surface features and anomalies. Image enhancement tools reveal fine surface details and intelligent preprocessing filters correct and normalize surface data prior to analysis.
ZMorf integrates the latest standards and methods for analyzing surface texture and geometry. Surface roughness and waviness components are separated by applying advanced ISO 16610 filtering techniques and IS0 25178 3D parameters are generated. Distances, areas, volumes, step heights and coplanarity are calculated. Regions of interest can be extracted from a measured surface for independent analysis. Numerous advanced features are available including the analysis of tribological surfaces, grains and particles analysis, and 3D Fourier and wavelets analysis.
ZMorf’s smart user environment makes it possible to develop applications and generate multi-page analysis reports quickly and easily. Templates automate the analysis of similar measurement data sets and common sequences of analysis steps can be saved for reuse at any time. All numerical results are accessible in a single results manager panel and can be exported for post-processing by complementary application-specific software or 3rd party software. Images and documents can be exported in standard formats for easy publication.
The ZMorf software is available on three levels for Zeta Instruments optical profilers. ZMorf Standard contains a standard set of features for surface imaging and analysis. ZMorf Advanced and the all-in ZMorf Premium package include features for advanced and specialized applications. A number of optional modules are available for users who want to extend ZMorf Standard and Advanced.
"Based on Digital Surf's proven Mountains Technology, ZMorf is the perfect addition to Zeta Instruments optical profilers, providing users with comprehensive imaging and analysis tools that can be used to develop applications really fast," stated Vamsi Velidandla, Vice President of Marketing at Zeta Instruments.
"Users of Zeta Instruments optical profilers will benefit from the latest generation of Mountains Technology with a new smart user interface designed to make imaging and analysis as straightforward as possible, which fits with Zeta's philosophy of spending more time measuring and analyzing your samples and less time learning how to use your tools,” stated François Blateyron, Chief Operating Officer at Digital Surf.
Zeta Instruments will unveil ZMorf at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, February 1-6, 2014.
