The Surface Analyst 2001 is BTG Lab's entry level surface inspection device that allows manufacturers to quantify the quality of critical surfaces for bonding, coating, painting, laminating or printing. This fast, easy accurate and non-destructive device allows manufacturers who struggle with adhesion issues to locate the root cause and fix their problem once and for all.
BTG Labs' Surface Analyst technology is built with the needs of the manufacturer in mind: it solves real surface quality problems using carefully chosen features to provide the fastest, most reliable surface quality measurements. Our measurement technology has three unique traits that provide the information necessary to achieve success in control of surface properties. These traits are: Ballistic Deposition of the liquid A top-down Videoscope Use of a single probe liquid for surface inspection Ballistic Deposition is our unique method of building a drop on the inspection surface by shooting a series of microdroplets down, allowing for total control over the volume and size of the drop. Our Videoscope is a sophisticated top-down vision system that is embedded within the inspection head that captures the required information for the software to make its measurements all within two seconds.
Automating the world''s most powerful and reliable surface quality inspection technology has opened the doors for exciting collaborations.
Watch to see how fast and easily the Surface Analyst XA validates surface quality to build the most predictable adhesion processes ever.
n the video below, part of our Eureka Moments video series, we delve into what happened when a customer who does aircraft repair used standard and completely approved abrasion materials, and yet they got some surprising outcomes when we took a closer look at what was actually happening to the metal surfaces being prepared for bonding. One of our greatest joys at BTG Labs is helping our customers make discoveries about their adhesion process that better equip them to build their most reliable products. The reduction of rework, recalls, delays, scrap, returns and all of the other headaches and dangers that come from adhesion failures is possible when you can look at all of the clues with the right tools. Utilize Adhesion Expertise
If you're doing everything right (i.e. measuring the surface quality of your bond materials, using reliable and appropriate surface cleaning and preparation techniques, etc.) but the measurements aren't comporting with your expectations, then it's time to take a closer look. Discover Adhesion Solutions This kind of situation leads to what we call Eureka Moments. These little bolts of lightning to the brain occur when BTG Labs' technology is used like Sherlock Holmes' magnifying glass to gather clues pointing to the root cause of imperfect adhesion and follow them to the solution. Sometimes that solution reveals itself in seemingly unlikely places. Watch our latest video for two stories about customers of ours that we partnered with to collect the evidence, follow the trail and find a solution to each adhesion conundrum.
The Surface Analyst XA is the only tool for fully automated, totally surface quality control. This inspection is the most reliable way to make absolutely certain there will be consistently successful adhesion.
In this video, Bill Buschle Ph.D. explains three types of bond failure, cohesive, substrate, and interfacial, using Oreo cookies to illustrate what those failures look like and what the sources of the root cause of these failures can be in manufacturing environments.
