- How to Best Specify and Improve Surface Topography
Surface properties are essential to most products and manufacturing processes. The magnitude of the surface roughness is often used as an important measure of the surface quality. Furthermore, requirements for the magnitude is de facto enforced by authorities dealing with food and pharmacy and are widely enforced by many main contractors. Large resources are used on surface finishing and reliable documentation for the fulfilment of specifications. The seminar will address cost efficient ways to reduce surface roughness and new improved measurements methods of the surface topography so that product quality and specifications can be improved and documented. All presentations will discuss and assess limitations and pitfalls of the methods presented.
