Measuring a wide variety of workpieces under varying temperature environments in a short period of time
"Achieved low vibration and high definition measurement by employing linear motor drive"


When you need surface texture, contour, or you may require both
The ability to freely combine detectors to suit any workpiece


Equipped with newly-developed, wide-range hybrid detectors covering more than twice the range of conventional machines, this machine efficiently evaluates the surface texture and contour of inclined surfaces, undulating shapes, and curved surfaces in one trace. In addition, special-purpose detectors for surface texture and contour measurement can be freely switched and added at a later stage depending on the workpiece. As long as you have one SURFCOM NEX, you won’t need another surface texture or contour measuring equipment.

Preparation and measurement in a short time with the fastest drive in the class
and wide-range hybrid detectors


Significantly improved drive speed reduces the time for approaching workpieces in manual mode, creating CNC programs and drive during CNC measurement. This improves efficiency throughout the inspection process, from preparation to measurement. In addition, by using a wide-range hybrid detector, there is no need to measure surface texture and contour shape separately, and necessary precise alignment before measuring the surface texture of inclined or curved surfaces can be skipped. This means inspections can be performed with minimal effort in the shortest period of time.

The world's only linear motor drive machine that can measure ultralow vibration
and operate at 20±5 degrees Celsius.


SURFCOM NEX inherits the linear motor drive unit, a patented technology of ACCRETECH, from a conventional SURFCOM NEX. An ultra-low vibration drive mechanism reduces noise caused by vibration and provides high-accuracy measurement results. Moreover, by offsetting the impact of temperature change on the scale in real time, accuracy can be assured over a wide temperature range of 20±5 degrees Celsius. Reliable measurement results are obtainable even in environments where temperature control is difficult.

Detector of Surface Texture Measuring Instrument

  • Pickup for roughness measurement
    Detector (pickup) designated for surface roughness measurement.By combining with linear x drive, it provides excellent reliability.

    This detector offers a measurement range of 1000 μm in the Z direction, which is 25% wider compared with 800 μm of common detectors. It has an excellent wide stroke as a roughness measuring instruments. The wide-range measurements significantly reduces the tilt angle of the measurement surface and detailed alignment at the R surface measurements
    (such as shafts, bearing workpieces).
