The ability of a processing operation to produce a specific surface roughness depends on many factors. Topography is defined in para. The standard roughness long-wavelengthcutoff values for the 2RC filter are listed in para. The calibration of the existing wide range of instruments, in all modes of operation, calls for more than one type of calibration specimen.

A schematic diagram of this classification with some examples isshownin Fig. Such amap often consists of a set of parallel profiles.

The World’s First $19k 3D Profilometer:

These specifications are essential for the reliable measurement of surface parameters and are thus necessary for establishing and maintaining control of surface texture. The term is applied to deviations caused by such factors as errors in machine tool ways, guides, or spindles, insecure clamping or incorrect alignment of the workpiece, or uneven wear.


Form error canbe separated from waviness on a surface by digital filtering with a Gaussian filter. Determination of required characteristics azme working surfaces mayinvolve consideration of such conditions as the area of contact, the load, speed, direction of motion, type and amount of lubricant, temperature, and material and physical characteristics of component parts.

The x axis magnification is the ratio of the length ofthe displayedprofileto the actual length traversed by the stylus.

The longwavelength cutoff must be specified in all cases on drawings created or revised after this Standard is published. C5, asmee 11 of hardness changes, stress, fatigue, and deterioration resulting from machining processes that cause altered zones of material at and immediately below the surface. This approach was first mentioned by Schmaltz see para. The transfer function of this system is: The b461. sinusoidal transmission function describes the percentage of transmitted amplitude for sine waves of various wavelengths at given tracing speeds as represented in the analog or digital signal prior to filtering.


See Table for nominal values of R, and S,. Instruments are designed to respond only to irregularity spacings less than a given value, called the cutoff. The instrument andworkpieceshould be aligned such that the underlying geometry of the 31 3.

This can be evaluated as showninFig. Machined Polished Honed Ground 0. The profile filter is the filter which separates the roughness R from the waviness W and form error F ‘components of the primary profile P.

For the mea, surement process where no specification exists, care must be taken to choose a cutoff value that includes all of the surface irregularities to be evaluated. Unnecessary restrictions may increase production costs and will mitigate the emphasis on specifications for important surfaces.

IMurerials Warrendale: The pickup range-to-resolution ratio is the ratio of total z axis measuring range to the pickup measuring resolution at a given magnification. Analytically, Ris given by: The equation is therefore given by: A single specimen or several kinds of specimens may be provided on a single block.

The widths of the individual grooves are nominally 20 Pm, 10 Pm, 5 Pm, and 2. The pickup measuring resolution is the smallest z profile height increment detectable by the pickup. If flaws are specified, the surface should be inspected by some mutually agreed upon method to determine whether flaws are present and are to be rejected or accepted prior to performing final surface roughness measurements.

For FFC probes with the sensing element in the form of a disc asin Fig. The mean surface may be determined in several ways, as described below.

B2 specimens asmd multiple isosceles triangular grooves with sharp peaks and valleys may be used for estimating the radii of stylus tips see Fig. Skids normally supplied with conventional stylus-type instruments often have too small a radius to provide accurate readings on surfaces rougher than The x axis profile component deviations are those deviations between the actual profileand the measured profile in the x direction.


The depth shall be assessed from the upper mean line to the lowest point of the groove.

What is Surface Texture B46.1 for Stainless

C5, [7] consists of a Wollaston prism which can be attached to most metallurgical microscopes close to the objective lens.

In using an instrument, a sufficient length of surface must be traversed to ensure that the full reading characteristic of the surface is obtained. Davie, International Adme Services, Inc.

In the case of the fringefield capacitance FFC probe, the skid contacts the surface but the sensor does not. The roughness evaluation length, wherever possible for statistical purposes, should consist of five roughness sampling lengths 1.

Modified profiles differ from unmodified,measuredprofiles in ways that are selectable by the instrument user, usually for the purpose of distinguishing surface roughness from surface waviness. Terms and definitions of parameters relating to area averaging techniques are contained in Section 1.

This function indicates the percentage of the amplitude of a sinusoidal surface profile transmitted by the pickup as a function of surface spatial wavelength see Section 9. Otherwise, the readings may not be representative of the actual roughness of a surface but may be useful for comparative purposes.

Other types of instruments may be used, but the correlation of their measurements with those ofType 1 instruments that comply with this Section must be demonstrated. If ris the stylus tip radius and r, is the radius of the razor blade edge, the rer.

Section 1 contains terms and definitions b64.1 parameters relating to these area profiling techniques. White light as well as monochromatic light can be used for any magnification.

The Type B3 specimen is a fine protruding edge.
