    How to Measure Bearings | Auto Roller Bearings Measurement

    Thursday, March 12, 2020 |

    The '2D X Auto' feature in Metrology 4.0 software It simplifies the measurement of roller bearings by precisely auto-detecting the edge at the start and end of the roller and it provides the analysis of roughness, wall thickness, dimension, and waviness, etc. It is no longer necessary to set the traverse length!

    Surface finish, also known a surface texture or surface topography, is the nature of a surface. It comprises the small local deviations of a surface from the perfectly flat ideal (a true plane). Irregularities on the surface or causes of the surface roughness due to rupture of workpiece material during the metal cutting operation.

    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 Working Principle

    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.

    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.
