                                 Automatic Form and Roughness Measurement in One Pass
    
The Hommel-Etamic Roundscan, a specially developed scanning system, combines automatic measurement of form, cylindricity and roughness characteristics in one measuring instrument. Available in different versions, the system can measure to a extremely high degree of accuracy small parts like injector components or valves, to large, heavy work pieces such as disc brakes, hydraulic components or crankshafts. The need to economically measure increasingly tight form and position tolerances and the influence of surface roughness on the functionality of components have driven the development of Hommel-Etamic Roundscan.
