The shape and size of irregularities on a machined surface have a major impact on quality, performance (leakage), and longevity.

The quantification and management of surface irregularities, through the measurement of surface roughness, is necessary to maintain high product performance.

Part 3 of our video series on Surface Finish will examine important elements of why and how we measure surface finish. The full table of contents is below: 

Part 3 will discuss:

1. Why we measure Surface Finish

2. Types of surface roughness

  • Linear
  • Areal

3. How we measure surface finish

  • Contact methods
  • Non-Contact methods

4. Contact & Non-Contact measurement considerations
