Measurement Reports

Taylor Hobson's Centre of Excellence provides a measurement service which develops solutions to your metrology problems. Some examples include:

Erosion of the human tooth by orange juice

  • A customer was carrying out research, investigating the amount of erosion by acidic foodstuffs. By using a Form Talysurf Series with
    Y-Stage and Talymap 3D software, it was possible to view the erosion after a short period of time.

The glaze defects on ceramic tiles

  • The customer required 3D analysis of the surface finish of several ceramic tiles. The solution to this problem was to use a Form Talysurf 3D measuring system.

Explosive fuses

  • The explosive was not firing fully, and the customer suspected a problem with the fuse body. They decided that this would need to be checked, and required measurements of cylindricity, straightness and parallelism. These measurements were carried out on a Talyrond.
