  • Why Use a Surface Finish Chart?
    A surface finish chart is a reference material we at Metal Cutting sometimes use internally as part of our quality assurance process. (You can read more about our quality measures on the Quality Commitment page of our website.) Typically, such charts provide guidelines regarding the measurement
  • Continuous Dewpoint Measurement Ensures Product Quality and Enables Optimized Energy Consumption in Plastics Drying
    Excess moisture in plastics decreases product strength and causes a poor surface finish. On the other hand, excessive polymer drying wastes energy and lowers productivity as material delay in the dryer is needlessly prolonged. Dryer. dewpoint controls help to achieve good product quality
  • Obtaining Specified Finishes by Honing
    Since surface finish measurements became recognized and standardized in mechanical engineering specifica-tions, more and more blueprints specify surface finishes based on actual measurement. Likewise, inspection departments are now equipped to check surface finishes by actual measurement.
  • Monitoring Coating Processes in Vacuum Chambers
    Important parameters that need to be monitored during coating processes, such as layer thickness, composition, surface finish, light transmission, reflectance, polarization ability, and others can be done by spectroscopy and spectroscopic interferometry. Fiber optics can provide a versatile tool
  • Measuring Machining Imperfections and Runout in Automobile Wheel Spindles
    A cylindrical grinding process finishes most wheel spindle surfaces. It is essential that this grinding process leave a surface finish that is smooth and free of defects with minimal runout. Any defects or "chatter" marks left on the surface can lead to premature bearing failure, unwanted noise
  • Tier 1 Automotive Supplier Standardizes on MTII's Capacitance Systems for In-Process Inspection of Shafts and Spindles
    Precision shafts and spindles are generally finished utilizing a centerless grinding process. This machining technique is cost effective and typically produces a quality cylindrical surface in which ball and roller bearings ride. The surface finish is important because any imperfection can
  • Flowmeters Benefit From Silicon Advances
    thermal flow switches are available in advanced non-intrusive thermal mass flow sensor configurations with a 10 Ra surface finish suitable for use in high purity and sanitary media. Easy to install and virtually maintenance-free, the device can be mounted vertically or horizontally. Gas Mass Flow
