Resolve the Surface Finish Problem. Bring Correlation to Your Supply Chain
Correlation of surface finish is a challenging task. The nature of typical surface finish tools is that they are tedious, sensitive to damage, and manually operated. The primary problems impacting surface finish measurement correlation are
(1) The location of the test is poorly controlled
(2) The sample area measured is very small
(3) Variation within the part under test is typically high
When these tests are performed manually, part variation becomes mixed with measurement variation and the entire surface finish measurement process appears to be non-repeatable. We address this by incorporating the surface finish measurement into a multisensor tool. The CMM sensors are able to register the part under test so that the surface finish measurement locations are repeatable and reproducible. With this simple adaptation, surface finish testing comes under control. This provides a basis for you to perform intelligent process monitoring and product compliance.
