Model Number: IQ Flex 20

The Rhopoint IQ Flex 20 quantifies surface quality problems such as orange and peel and haze that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface. Previously only available for measuring flat surfaces, this technology is now available in a new format specifically designed for curved surfaces and small & delicate parts. This incredibly advanced instrument measures: 20° GLOSS • HAZE• REFLECTED IMAGE QUALITY (RIQ) • DISTINCTNESS OF IMAGE (DOI) • RSPEC In practice, these terms mean: Gloss: A measurement proportional to the amount of light reflected from a surface measured at 20° (high gloss) Haze: An optical effect caused by microscopic textures or residue on a surface. RIQ : Used to quantify effects such as orange peel and surface waviness. This new parameter gives higher resolution results compared to Distinctness of Image (DOI) measurement and better mimics human perception of surface texture, especially on high quality finishes such as automotive paint finish.
Compact measuring head enables curved surfaces and small areas to be measured easilyDOI: A measure of how clearly a reflected image will appear in a reflective surface. RSPEC: The peak gloss value over a very narrow angle. Features:

Interchangeable magnetic adaptors allow reduced measurement spot sizes down to 4mm or 2mm
Bespoke 3D printed adaptor jigs available for repeatable sample positioning
Alternative rubber, felt or plastic adaptors can be specified for delicate surfaces
Non-contact adaptor plates allow the measurement head to be fixed above moving products on line or robotised
Single button push to measure all parameters for easy identification of non-conformances
Onboard Statistics (max, min, mean, S.D.) and graphs
Results batching with user definable names
Rhopoint Data Widget – Allows results to be instantly transmitted to any PC package such as Excel, Word, SPC programs etc.
Bluetooth Compatibility – transmit data to any smartphone, tablet or PC
USB results download to PC without the need to install software

Measurement of curved surfaces with the IQ Flex 20*
Conventional gloss instruments are suited to large flat areas and test, as curved surfaces cause errors. The small footprint of the IQ FLEX 20 makes it much more effective on curved surfaces than a conventional glossmeter; its compact size and shape also allows access to difficult to reach areas.

Bespoke measuring heads
Bespoke 3D printed adaptor jigs for repeatable control of curved surfaces.

Measurement of small surfaces
The Rhopoint IQ FLEX 20 can be customised with magnetically attached adaptor plates. These can be easily interchanged for different applications.
