The function of a wide variety of industrial manufactured components depends upon proper surface characteristics and preparation. For example: drill bits, medical implants, gears, surgical blades, clutch plates, shaft seals and brake pads depend not only on proper form such as shape, angle and geometry, but also on proper surface texture characteristics for optimum performance. 3D optical microscopy is inherently invaluable to the inspection of surfaces such as these due to the fast, non-contact capability to measure and quantify in gage capable fashion a range of relevant parameters for the surfaces. In this presentation, a variety of surface parameters for 3D analysis will be described and discussed, and a few specific examples from industrial applications will be presented.

Viewers will learn about:

  • Relevant 3D areal parameters (S-parameters)
  • How 3D optical microscopy data, to include functional S-parameters, provide insight into surface performance
  • How 3D optical microscopes offer an excellent non-contact metrology solution with gage capability for production line use
