  • Surface Analysis: Beyond Roughness
    and the reasons for doing so go far beyond roughness. In fact, many experts choose to use the terminology of "surface texture" rather than simply calling these characteristics "roughness.". Some measurements determine how a surface will bear loads, while others determine how well a surface provides
  • Surface Finish Measurement Basics - Roughness Is An Important Characteristic of Machined Surfaces
    The growing influence of surface. finish can be traced to dramatic changes. in manufacturing specifications and. drastic tightening of dimensional tolerances. over the past few decades. As a. result of these changes, the proportion. of the tolerance range, which is taken up. by surface

  • Surface Smoothness: The Surface Roughness of Anodic Coatings Resulting from the MLT-II and MLT-III Processes are Analyzed
    The surface roughness of aluminum alloys anodized using the METALAST process has been measured and the results are summarized in this spec. The surface roughness is reported on the average of the results obtained from the four samples of each alloy with eight measurements evenly distributed on both
  • Surface Measurement & Manufacturing
    applications as well. For example, high-pressure injectors—critical for high-performance diesel engines—demand an exceptional sealing surface, with a manufacturing process requiring optical measurement. Following the space shuttle Challenger disaster, optical sensors were used to analyze the roughness
  • Coming Age of Surface Metrology with Optical Instruments
    of the valleys in the surface texture due to the size of the tip,  in addition the tip is further rounded by friction. Also, measurement pressure can damage the measured surface. As a result, the measurement can differ from actual surface roughness. Today, diamonds with high friction resistance are used
  • Optical Instruments Defining the Evolution of Surface Texture Measurement in Manufacturing
    Reliability. Unlike contact-type measurement, measurement by means of optical instruments does not involve direct contact with surfaces; instead, measurement is based on the reflection of light from the surface. This difference has, until recently, resulted in widely varying results for measurements made
