Additive Manufacturing

Applications & User Cases

Alicona measurement solutions enable the optimization of 3D printing process, quality assurance of additive manufactured parts, surface texture measurement for quality evaluation of entire surface, analysis of porosity throughout volume measurement (Vvc, Vmc), automatic measurements to identify form deviations to CAD dataset or reference geometry, 3D measurements to achieve optimum finishing process, e.g. polishing and much more.

“Our Alicona system has proved invaluable for analysis of the complex surfaces generated by laser processes such as additive manufacturing and high precision manufacturing, providing reliable measurements when other instruments struggle.“
