  • Surface Texture Parameters
    Every part's surface is made up of texture and roughness which varies due to manufacturing techniques and the part structure itself. To understand a component's surface and to control the manufacturing process to the degree required in today's modern world, it is necessary to quantify the surface
  • Optical Instruments Defining the Evolution of Surface Texture Measurement in Manufacturing
    Surface texture measurement has a history that began a century ago with the advent of contact-type 2D measurement. Although measurement using optical instruments has been in existence almost as long as contact-type measurement, optical instrument measurement did not become widely used until about
  • 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
  • Measuring Surface Roughness and Texture
    We usually think of "smooth" as "slick" or "slippery." But did you know that a surface that is too smooth can actually be 'sticky'? Racing slicks on dragsters increase traction with the pavement, and a racing sailboat hull that is too smooth can actually increase drag through the water. In fact
  • Texture and Microstructural Gradients in an Extruded Aluminium Profile (.pdf)
    OIM measurements were used to investigate the texture and microstructural gradients observed in extruded aluminium profiles. The material used in this study was an AlMgSi-alloy containing 0.45 wt% Mg and 0.44 wt% Si extruded into a flat profile with a cross section of 207 x 3 mm2 carrying a fully
  • Seeking a Smoother Way to Measure Roughness
    In seeking a way to measure surface texture, Brown found confocal technology from Olympus to be among the most versatile in terms of dealing with surfaces and roughness.
  • Surface Finish: A Machinist`s tool. A Design Necessity
    Surface finish, or texture, can be viewed from two very different perspectives. From the machinist's point of view, texture is a result of the manufacturing process. By altering the process, the texture can be changed. From the part designer's point of view, surface finish is a condition
  • Safety Standards for Slips, Trips and Falls
    According to the National Safety Council, compensation and medical costs associated with employee slip and fall accidents are approximately $70 billion annually. There are many factors that contribute to slip and fall accidents such as footwear type, walkway type, surface levelness, surface texture
