White Paper: Automotive

Only one surface measurement can tell: Will a steel fender and an aluminum door match after painting… Could you?


For automotive paint, surface texture at each step in the painting process can decide the final paint quality. But a production measurement that could measure any substrate from bare through to final coat has been elusive. A new optical approach—with 3D, nanometer-scale roughness precision—may offer a full solution. What if auto manufacturing could ensure final paint quality by looking at incoming parts? Get the white paper to understand the ramifications.
