    Harmonics Analysis Tutorial

    Monday, January 20, 2020 |

    The separation of imperfections on round components into their circular frequencies, or “harmonics” is crucial to the analysis of what caused them. In this tutorial Dr Mike Mills - Chief Metrologist - discusses the basis and use of harmonic analysis.

    What is Roundness | Methods of Roundness Measurement in Metrology

    Tuesday, October 29, 2019 |

    The measurement of roundness is of critical importance for many applications. There are several different measurement methods from simple caliper measurements to highly accurate dedicated roundness measurement systems. In this article, Dr. Mike Mills – Chief Metrologist – outlines some of the methods and their limitations.

    What is Surface Roughness | Roughness Measurement Overview

    Friday, October 4, 2019 |

    In many applications, surface roughness is closely allied to function, for instance where two surfaces are in close moving contact with each other their surface roughness will affect their sealing or wear properties. This might suggest that it is a case of "the smoother the better", but this is not always true as other factors may be involved. Where lubrication is involved it has been found that roughness valleys are required to hold oil. Also, the financial aspect must be considered: it costs a lot of money to produce very smooth surfaces and the expense of this exercise can add to the bill considerably without gaining a great deal of performance.

    Taylor Hobson has extensive experience working with manufacturers of precision components with high volume product outputs, where measurement inaccuracies and production errors can have significant cost ramifications. However, measuring individual components and extrapolating data to determine respective batch quality is both time-consuming and ineffective.

    Automated Surface Measurement of Engine Components

    Wednesday, November 14, 2018 |

    The automotive sector is comprised of numerous complex engineering processes that must operate to outstanding levels of precision in order for the finished product to meet consumer standards and professional certifications. In recent decades, auto engineering has moved towards pervasive automation with robotic assembly lines. However, analysing the surface composition of mechanical components for contours and variations widely remains a manual process.

    What are Roughness and Contour Measurements?

    Thursday, November 1, 2018 |

    Contours refer to the nominal form of a surface, excluding irregularities that could be categorized as roughness or waviness. Characterizing the contours of a surface profile is complex as it can be inherently difficult to separate waviness from general form.

    Assessing the Surface Metrology of Orthopaedic Implants

    Monday, October 22, 2018 |

    Surgical implants represent some of the greatest steps forward in medical innovation of the last century. Orthopaedic surgeons routinely custom-build medical implants to replace missing joints or bones in the skeletal structures of patients. Dental implants comprised of artificial veneer material and a false, titanium root are increasingly commonplace. Cardiothoracic surgeons can replace damaged or diseased tissue in the human heart and implant false heart valves with life-saving ramifications.
