Verity IA Topography
Verity IA is an industry leader in automated surface roughness analysis using desktop scanning.
Verity IA developed the proprietary Stochastic Frequency Distribution Analysis to describe visibly variable surface features over relatively large surface areas. These variables yield undesirable qualities in paper, board, coatings, and other surfaces, particularly when additional operations, such as printing, coating or painting, will be performed on these surfaces.
The human eye can detect very small variations and large blotchy variations at the same time. The SFDA algorithm replicates this analysis and expresses the overall variation as an index number. Unlike stylus, laser and air systems, a much larger area can be described in far less time.
