The 4D InSpec XL Surface Defect Gauge expands 4D Technology’s 4D InSpec product line—they’re the first handheld, precision instruments for 3D non-contact surface defect measurement. The 4D InSpec XL has a larger field of view and higher scan range. The features you measure can be up to 0.6″ x 0.6″ across. You still get micrometer-level resolution, portability, affordability and ease-of-use. It measures and reports in under a second. 4D InSpec XL puts high resolution metrology on the factory floor, in machine shops, on the flight-line, and in field-service’s hands. So you don’t have to wait for the metrology lab’s report.
A handheld 3D surface defect gauge
4D InSpec XL quantifies defects such as pits, scratches, nicks, dents and bumps, and measures features such as edge break, radii, rivet depth and dot peen depth, from 0.0002″ (5 microns) to 0.35″ (9 mm) deep/tall. 4D InSpec is far more repeatable and accurate than visual comparison techniques typically used for surface defect measurements. And unlike high-end metrology systems it is rugged, flexible and affordable, to measure a wide range of part geometries in the most challenging environments.
So easy, you can learn to use it in 10 minutes
No replicas, less dismantling of big parts. Just place it and click:
- Touch the standoff leg to the part: you’re in focus
- Tilt the surface defect gauge until the preview turns bright green: you’re perpendicular to the surface
- Press the button on the gauge: your measurement appears on the screen in about a second
Hold the 4D InSpec in your hand to access tight corners or to sample large surfaces directly on components. An optional fold mirror accessory lets the system function like a borescope to access features without line of sight. One-button operation and immunity to sensor movement make it easy to align and measure, while a rugged design and single cable tether withstand the rigors of daily use. So you never need to wait for the replica to set up.
