November 7, 2018

Since SPM specialists Image Metrology and Digital Surf joined forces, development teams from both companies have been working hard to create the next generation of SPM image analysis software.


02 April

We will be present at the exhibition of scientific instruments and literature during the next DPG Spring Meeting from April 2 to 4 in Regensburg, Germany.

Digital Surf has been developing surface imaging & metrology software for profilers and microscopes since 1989

Our main focus is on working as a partner with instrument manufacturers worldwide, in the fields of surface metrology and microscopy. Mountains® software is now offered by the majority of profilometer and microscope manufacturers and is embedded in their equipment or available as an option.

Digital Surf also provides MountainsMap® software packages directly to instrument users. Mountains® has an installed base of 12,000+ licenses worldwide, is available in 11 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards and is supplied by 50+ instrument manufacturers.

Application areas include: automotive, material science, semiconductors, medical, aerospace, MEMS, renewable energy, etc.


Toward improved integration of bioceramic implants

Bioceramics are particularly useful in the repair and reconstruction of bone. A group of researchers at the University of Limoges investigated the impact of bioceramic surface topography and composition on protein adhesion forces.

Quality control of plastic graining on dashboard

A French car manufacturer performed quality control of automotive dashboard material (plastic). Measured data was checked to be in compliance with ISO 25178 parameters.

Dive into our free online surface metrology guide and learn how to characterize surface texture in 2D and 3D using the right parameters and filters


Surface texture parameters: why so complex?

Surface texture has always been a difficult discipline to master, due to complex filtration conditions and numerous parameters. ISO expert François Blateyron looks how this could be simplified in the future.
