Surfaces matter, every single day of our lives


Our cars now use less and less fuel, thanks to regular progress in the dimensional tolerancing and surface texture evaluation of camshafts, crankshafts, gears, injection nozzles...

Mountains® Contour analysis, used to measure these components every day worldwide, is a major contributor.


Our banknotes are secured using watermarks, transparent strips, thick ink deposits using intaglio printing, ink with special spectral properties, and other secret anti-forgery protection devices.

Mountains® is used by official agencies to assess notes, stamps, passports and coins worldwide.


Our computers are forever more powerful thanks to the continuous reduction of scale in micro and nanoelectronics.

Hundreds of metrology systems embedding Digital Surf's software technology are installed every year by the semiconductor industry to assess nanodimensions on computer chips.


Our cosmetics must be tested by independent laboratories to assess their claimed efficacy.

Mountains® is used by leading manufacturers to evaluate products for eye contour wrinkles, acne, skin ageing and pigmentation, tooth discoloration, and more.


Our energy production wows becoming environmentally friendly.

Mountains® is appreciated by energy industry as a tool that helps to increase solar panel and wind turbines yield.



Wherever a surface matters, Mountains® matters.
