LIVONIA, MI — Michigan Metrology will host a surface metrology and tribology short course on Sept 26-27, 2018. Michigan Metrology’s Don Cohen, Ph.D., will lead the two-day short course. Cohen is an expert in surface roughness and its effects.

The course’s topics will include:
• Roughness, waviness and form
• Instruments for measuring texture
• Filtering surface texture measurements
• Surface texture parameters
• Wear
• Friction
• Sealing
• Surface energy
• Data analysis
• Specifying surface texture.

The workshop is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians working in the fields of automotive, aerospace, materials, polymers, and others.

About Dr. Donald Cohen

In 1994, Dr. Cohen established Michigan Metrology to help engineers and scientists solve problems related to “Squeaks, leaks, friction, wear, appearance, adhesion and other issues,” using 3D Surface MicroTexture Measurement and Analysis.

Prior to forming Michigan Metrology, Dr. Cohen was vice president of engineering at WYKO Corporation (now part of Bruker Corporation), developing surface metrology instrumentation. He served as vice chairman/chairman of the ANSI/ASME B46.1 Surface Texture Standards committee from 2000-2011 and is past Chairman of the STLE-Detroit section. He holds a B.S. / M.S. in physics and a Ph.D. in optical sciences.
