Qualitative Surface Metrology for Advanced Manufacturing

On Demand until November 15, 2018

Duration:30 minutes


The surface of a product plays a crucial role in overall quality. Surface quality greatly impacts both the visual appeal and functional performance of end products. Visually, it is often aesthetics that drive a consumer decision, such as the shine of fine polished jewelry, the surface texture of a cell phone, or the exterior finish of an automobile. On the other hand, though one may never see or notice a component’s surface, it can have an extensive impact on the functional performance and reliability of the end product, such as in the various interacting parts of an automobile engine, aircraft turbine, or a bio-engineered implant.

It is not an overstatement to say that surface quality, though not talked about much, is a critical part of manufacturing that needs to be understood. This webinar addresses some of the challenges of surface metrology, and shares some real-life examples of how these challenges can be overcome.

Attendees will learn:

  • How surface appearance can often determine a product’s success
  • How surface quality directly impacts the performance and reliability of both components and entire systems
