During product/process development a large number of components (100’s-1000’s) must be measured for surface finish/wear characteristics. Michigan Metrology provides contract measurement services to quickly and accurately measure surface texture on a few or components, or thousands. Our automation capabilities allow us to provide high throughput for larger jobs.
As a contract metrology lab Michigan Metrology can provide a large number of 3D surface roughness measurements per surface. The 3D data is further reduced to a set of parameters derived from the many analytical techniques available (e.g., Bearing Area Analysis, Peaks, Summits, Stylus Profilometer parameters such as Sa, Ssk, Sku, Rsm, etc. ). The results are compiled in a binder, including database printouts and multiple customized color printouts of representative 3D images and analyses. The database results and color graphics are also provided in Excel and PowerPoint files respectively.
