Keyence Product Spotlight: VR-6000 3D Optical Profilometer

Keyence Releases New 3D Optical Profilometer with Built-In Motorized Rotation Unit

Itasca, IL: Keyence Corporation of America, a leading supplier of surface metrology systems and factory automation equipment, announces the release of the VR-6000 3D Optical Profilometer. This high precision measurement system is designed with a built-in motorized rotational unit allowing users to take 3D measurements around the circumference of their part without having to worry about blind spots. Wall thickness, undercuts, and cross-sectional measurements can now be taken without cutting or destroying the target and full surface data can be captured with 0.1-micron resolution.

Unlike traditional optical profiling systems that are hard to use and have material restrictions due to low dynamic range, the VR-6000 offers a simple place-and-press interface partnered with HDR scanning to capture highly-accurate data, even on glossy or matte surfaces. The HDR algorithm automatically determines optimum lighting conditions, adjusting brightness and focus, to offer a dynamic range that is 1000 times greater than conventional systems. Now any user, regardless of experience level, can obtain accurate and repeatable data on just about any type of material.

In addition, entire surfaces can be scanned in as little as 1 second, leading to quicker turnaround times and overall improvements in prototype development and inspections. Users can quickly perform pass/fail inspections and can accurately compare data to a CAD file or other part scans. For more information, please visit our website at
