Waveline measuring systems offer you extensive evaluation possibilities for surface measurement of contour and roughness, with the option for combining the two depending on the system.

Accurate Results In No Time

The new generation of Hommel-Etamic’s Waveline systems were designed to meet a variety of industry requirements for fast and flexible surface roughness measurement.

Why Measure Roughness & Contour? 

Surface roughness is observed and measured in a variety of industries and manufacturing practices. Waveline’s surface measurement systems allow manufacturers to easily determine the quality of a surface and visualise surface contours (peaks & troughs).

The data collected can be used by manufacturers to identify surface defects, and ensure the surface of parts are suitable for use.

Jenoptik’s Waveline range produces a comprehensive digital report and displays results in real time.

Easy to Operate

Surface roughness measuring station configurations are modular and can easily be expanded whenever you need.


The new W800 and W900 series offers a probing system suitable for a variety of surface finish inspection tasks.

Jenoptik offers surface finish checking instruments to suit a variety of applications.

Waveline W800

The Waveline W800 series of form measurement systems have been specifically developed for surface texture & contour measuring tasks that are commonly associated with manual and semi-automatic measuring processes.

These surface finish inspection systems are easy to operate and offer full reporting using Evovis software. The highest level of measuring accuracy in the shortest amount of time. The systems automatically detect the smart contour probe arms with RFID identification and adjust the optimal measurement conditions accordingly. This reduces operating errors and incorrect measurements can be virtually eliminated.

Waveline W900

The Waveline W900 series was designed for high-complexity surface roughness and contour measuring tasks, often used in automated processes. The form and finish measurement system has two operating interfaces that allow the probing systems to be paired, and optional axes for automating surface measurement processes.

Waveline W10 – Handheld Surface Roughness

Mobile roughness measuring with the Waveline W10.

With Jenoptik’s Waveline W10 measuring instrument, you can measure your parts wirelessly. 

The W10 surface finish checking instrument is ideal for mobile use. It seamlessly allows operators to monitor the surface quality, roughness and contours of parts during the production process. The practical measuring system has extensive functions and optional features.

  • Clear result display on a large touchscreen
  • Evovis mobile evaluation software available

Waveline W5 – Handheld Surface Roughness

The W5 portable surface roughness measuring instrument is easy to operate, robust and delivers highly accurate results. It’s light-weight and compact design makes Waveline W5 perfect for mobile use. This system can be positioned precisely on parts and will not slip.

  • Battery life lasts for over 800 measurements
  • Optional extras including the Waveline P5 Printer
  • Connect components using the latest in Bluetooth® technology

Jenoptik’s automated surface measuring instruments allow you to measure the roughness and contours of parts in virtually no time.

The systems feature two probing systems, encompassed within one measuring system; the probing systems can be used separately, to save you both time and resources.

Our partner, Jenoptik, is a leading supplier of surface inspection equipment. The Waveline range is designed to take fast and accurate measurements of surface roughness.
