ZEISS Surface-Contour-Form Measuring Machines

ZEISS Industrial Metrology is a leader in form, contour, and surface measurement systems. ZEISS offers maximum precision in a wide range of applications - from portable surface measurement to large CNC machines for the shop floor, calibration lab, and beyond.

ZEISS Surfcom Crest

Surface & Contour Systems

These highly accurate rotary table machines and spindle form testers can be used in diverse applications: production line, measuring room, calibration lab, and more.

ZEISS Roundcom Nex

Roundness-Form Systems

The contact-free linear drive makes these machines highly efficient and low maintenance. Different, often combinable, sensors provide limitless measurement options.

ZEISS Handysurf

Portable Surface Testers

Portable, multi-sensor mobile surface measuring instruments and analysis units from ZEISS are robust, easy to use, and ideally suited for non-transportable workpieces.

Profile Detection for Every Application

Contour and surface measuring machines from ZEISS offer diverse, often combinable sensors for roughness measurements, contour measurements, or both. The patented contact-free magnetic linear drive makes SURFCOM NEX highly efficient and low-maintenance. It enables a positioning speed that is up to seven times faster.

Futureproof Flexibility
