wave-scan: The Objective Eye for a Brilliant Finish
Surface appearance changes with the size and distinctness of wavy structures. The wave-scan analyzes waviness intensity with 5 wavelength ranges (0.1 mm - 30 mm) and evaluates the brilliance of the surface. The results form a “structure spectrum" and help you to analyze and optimize the surface quality based on material and / or process parameters.
From substrate to top coat, from film thickness to levelling - wave-scan is your diagnostic and QC tool at the same time to keep the process under control.
The new wave-scan 3 family comes with a fresh design to accommodate an extra-large color touch display. Operation and feel is as intuitive as you are used to with your smart-phone. Capacitive display technology provides a state-of-the-art haptic touch.
The fastest chip ever calculates complex waviness scales in no time at all, speeds up the measuring time and lets you do more in the same time.
High correlation to the visual perception and excellent agreement with previous wave-scan models.
wave-scan 3 for orange peel and DOI
measurement of high gloss topcoat finishes
Appearance control is no longer limited to final topcoat inspection. Thus, the surface quality after each paint process step can be objectively evaluated.
No more guessing which substrate layer is influencing the final appearance. The wave-scan dual will help you to objectively analyze appearance problems and reduce the time necessary for trouble shooting.
Now you can objectively evaluate Orange Peel and DOI on very curved components or small add-on parts - like fuel doors, mirror housings, door handles, decorative trim or motorcycle parts. DOI measurement is also possible without scanning the surface.
Like it's big brother it comes with a docking station for recharging and data transfer to smart-chart allowing professional analysis, documentation and data management.
micro-wave-scan fits in the palm of your hand: small, light weight and is easy to use.
The new Generation: with high speed computing, LAN and new interface program
A stable running process is the key for uniform and consistent quality. The wave-scan 3 ROBOTIC allows automated appearance control as it is mounted on a robotic arm and measures without touching the surface.
The robotic system ensures measurement on the same area and sampling a high number of measured car bodies. Thus, representative QC data is collected and can be used to analyze the appearance influencing parameters by connecting material and process parameters to enable leading edge analysis methods with AI algorithms.

smart-chart includes powerful standard management for defining all essential appearance parameters with Pass/Fail tolerances. Its "Organizer" set-up enables clear sample identification and a menu guided operation on the instrument. From single test series to trend reports over time or special charts for trouble shooting - smart-chart is your global tool for process stability.
