The Waveline W5 mobile measuring instrument impresses with its reliable and highly precise roughness measurement. The system can be positioned precisely on the workpiece and does not slip. It is lightweight with a compact design, which means it can be used easily for mobile applications. The battery pack also means the instrument will not let you down even with frequent use: The charge lasts for more than 800 measurements.

The roughness probe (measuring probe) can be changed easily and quickly, meaning the W5 can be used for countless different measuring tasks. The intuitive click wheel and color display mean that the measuring instrument is particularly easy to use.

As an option, the measuring system can be extended with the Waveline P5 printer. The two components can be connected with each other easily using the latest Bluetooth® technology, allowing you to print out your measurement results on site without the need for any additional connection cables.


  • High measurement quality: Robust, calibrated roughness probe
  • Compact and light: Particularly portable thanks to the compact design and weight of just 270 grams
  • Durable and wireless: Up to 800 measurements possible with just one battery charge; print out via Bluetooth® technology
  • Easy to use: Intuitive graphical user interface and click wheel
  • Clear: Large color display, allowing easy reading of tolerance evaluation results
  • Large memory capacity: 5 measuring programs, 100 profiles or 10,000 measurements

The Waveline W10 - Measuring Instrument: Mobile Roughness Measurement for Transverse Probing, Overhead Positions and Vertical Positions

With the mobile Waveline W10 measuring instrument, you can measure your workpiece wirelessly, with a clear result always displayed on the large touchscreen.

Waveline W10

The Waveline W10 measuring instrument is ideal for use in mobile roughness measurement, allowing you to monitor the surface quality of your workpieces during the production process itself. The practical measuring system has extensive functions. It offers reliable and precise measurement both during transverse probing and in overhead and vertical positions. The integrated roughness standard allows rapid testing of the instrument, ensuring a consistently high level of accuracy.

The W10 has an integrated thermal printer, which means measurement results can be documented immediately. Tolerance evaluations, profiles, Abbott curves and statistics can be printed out straight away. The measuring instrument offers seven different programs as well as the option of testing the instrument. All functions can be operated via the modern and user-friendly color touchscreen. No time-intensive training is required, which saves you time and money.

As an option, the measuring system can be extended with the Evovis Mobile evaluation software. This PC-based software has been specially developed for mobile measuring instruments, and significantly expands the roughness measurement functions. It functions in online and offline mode, and supports you in your selection of measuring conditions. You can also automatically save your print forms.


  • High-precision: Precisely measure all common roughness parameters
  • Compliant with standards: Meets the requirements of international standards
  • Versatile: Allows transverse probing, and overhead and vertical measurements
  • Practical: Measure without wires; integrated charging cradle for the LV17 traverse unit
  • Easy to use: Intuitive, modern touchscreen
  • Clear: Results view with tolerance evaluation and surface profiles

The Waveline W20 - Skidless Probe System Optimizes Your Mobile Roughness Measurement Tasks

The skidless probe system Waveline W20 helps to optimise your mobile roughness measurement.

Measure surface roughness with the Hommel-Etamic W20 mobile measuring instrument

Waveline W20

The Waveline W20 skidless probe system has been designed specifically for mobile roughness measurement. It not only measures all common roughness parameters, but also evaluates the waviness and total profile of your workpiece surfaces. The measuring instrument is particularly compact and portable. The built-in battery means that it can be used even without an external power supply.

The measuring probe is automatically positioned on the workpiece surface. The motorized probe lowering function simplifies operation— you simply need to position the traverse unit and start the measurement. On completion of the measurement, the probe arm lifts up from the workpiece automatically. This protects the probe tip from damage.

The large color touchscreen is extremely clear and easy to operate. With the integrated printer, you can display your measurement results in graph form immediately. Parameters, profile graphics, Abbott curves and statistical data can be displayed. The measuring instrument offers seven measuring programs, as well as the option to test it with the integrated roughness standard.


  • Safe: Motorized probe lowering protects the roughness probe and automatically sets the measuring range
  • Mobile use: Compact traverse unit with skidless probe system
  • Document measured values: Print out results immediately
  • Easy to use: Clear and transparent thanks to the large, color touchscreen with context-sensitive probe functions
  • Informative: Display parameters, profile graphics, Abbott curves and statistical data
  • Versatile: Extensive range of accessories for individual measuring tasks
