Benchmark for Precision
The HD9800+ system’s vibration-tolerant design, integrated air isolation, and production-friendly architecture driven by industry road maps maintain measurement integrity during production floor usage. It’s high-resolution camera delivers the ultimate in lateral resolution and accuracy, and a wide range of hardware and analysis software features designed specifically for advanced process control result in the fastest and most gauge-capable system for data storage slider applications.
Best PTR and Flatness Capabilities
HD9800+ provides the fastest, most accurate 3D measurements for slider pole tip recession (PTR) and slider bearing surface flatness. The system also continuously calibrates to an internal, primary standard, eliminating the need for regular calibration to step heights. This self-calibration ensures long term stability and correlation, and significantly reduces qualification time. The ultimate result is the most accurate industrial metrology performance with the best reliability and serviceability on the market.
Bruker’s HD9800+ provides the fastest, most accurate 3D measurements for slider pole tip recession (PTR) and slider bearing surface flatness. Featuring a robust system design and production-friendly architecture driven by industry road maps, the system exhibits superior immunity to production floor vibration and noise.
