The Fischer TERASCOPE is an automated measurement solution for coating thickness measurement of organic and dielectric single and multilayers as well as material analysis with terahertz waves. With market-leading precision, repeatability and speed, the innovative TERASCOPE measurement system is perfectly suited for fully automated inline measuring. Absolutely non-destructive and contactless, the TERASCOPE penetrates all organic and dielectric materials and can therefore be used for a wide variety of measuring tasks. Its modular design allows system manufacturers and integrators to integrate the measurement system flexibly and individually into the production process.

State-of-the-art technology and designed for 24/7 use, the robust Terascope impresses with measuring times of just a few seconds.

With a sampling rate of up to 1.6 kHz, the Terascope is independent of external vibrations and delivers highly precise and repeatable measurement results.

No matter what base material, no matter what industry, revolutionise your process of quality control with Terascope.

Reliable positioning on complex shapes, including surface characterisation using an ultrasensitive 3D scanner – regardless of temperature, ambient light, object colour or surface temperature.

Measure up to 7 layers in a single measurement process and obtain the layer thickness of each individual layer.

The powerful software Terasuite is compatible with all common fieldbus systems and can therefore easily be integrated into your PLC.
