Measuring a wide variety of workpieces under varying temperature environments in a short period of time
"Contour profile measuring instrument achieving high accuracy"


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.

Detectors of Contour Measuring Instrument

  • General-purpose detector for contour measurement
    Detector realizing highest-in-class accuracy

    The measuring force should be adjusted manually with weights. A newly-developed high resolution scale allows the highest accuracy in this class.
  • High-accuracy detector for contour measurement
    High-accuracy detector with built-in auto balance
    (automatic measuring force adjustment) function

    The measuring force can be finely specified and controlled on PC software in 2 mN increments. This prevents trace scratches or a broken chip of a stylus tip when it hits a step. Various special arms/styluses are supported to ensure an optimum measuring force.
    *An auxiliary weight may be needed depending on the combination of arms and styluses.
