Veeco Introduce the NT9080 Surface Metrology System

Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO), a leader in scientific and industrial metrology, today introduced the NT9080(TM) Surface Metrology System, which combines non-contact white light interferometry, operator ease of use, and affordability for both expert- and entry-level precision surface measurements. Utilizing over 25 years of Veeco's optical profiler technology expertise, the NT9080 is a streamlined three-dimensional (3D) measurement system suited to a wide range of cost-sensitive research and industry applications, from solar cell texture mapping to the characterization of precision machined parts.

"With the NT9080, Veeco has responded to a need in the precision machining, medical, printing, and solar markets for a value-optimized, non-contact 3D microscope for dedicated surface texture measurements," said Mark R. Munch, Ph.D., Executive Vice President, Veeco Metrology. "The NT9080 performs the critical measurements necessary to increase yield and reduce manufacturing costs, without the complex operation and higher-priced features often required for automated applications."

Andrew Masters, Veeco Metrology's Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Business Development, added, "As manufacturing tolerances tighten in the precision machining community, a transition from traditional 2D contact-based measurements to a quantitative 3D non-contact standard is required. The NT9080 is a dedicated, high-precision, metrology instrument that enables manufacturers to measure critical surface texture and features at speeds faster than traditional stylus instrumentation. Veeco's expertise and continued long term commitment to the Metrology industry provide a stable basis for a strong partnership with our customers entering this 2D-to-3D transition."
