Alicona is a global supplier of optical 3D surface measurement solutions for quality assurance in research and production. Our key competence is the measurement of form and roughness of even complex, miniaturized geometries.
With Focus-Variation, our key technology, we offer a technique that combines the functionalities of a micro coordinate measurement machine (CMM) with those of a surface measurement system. For a user, this means to measure both form and roughness of components on an areal basis. The stable and robust technology of Focus-Variation delivers repeatable and traceable measurements even in a production near environment.
In pharmaceutical industry and medical technology, Alicona products are used for drug development, mould making (e.g. auto injectors, syringes etc.) measurement of implants (e.g. tooth implants), material optimization and quality assurance of all kinds of micro manufactured components. Typically, a correlation between surface state and biological behaviour can be established.
