Show synopsis The fast moving field of surface measurement is continually increasing in importance within every area of industry, from aerospace to medical. Companies at the forefront of industry are constantly pushing the boundaries of metrology. Innovative coverage of how, where and when surfaces are measured, explores dimensional surface measurement together with the appropriate techniques for measurement. Through a comprehensive treatment of the subject, techniques common to surface microscopy are explored alongside a demonstration of how surface texture and roundness instrumentation calibration methods are selected and employed. Features: * A clear and unambiguous approach to engineering metrology from a practitioners point of view. * Utilises the latest ISO international standards. * Extensive colour images of the latest equipment at world-renowned research and development facilities. * Easy to understand line drawings providing an insight into the techniques used in establishing surface roundness across a broad spectrum of production processes. * Forward and full endorsement from the NPL, UK (National Physical Laboratory). Engineers and Scientists i.e. Metrologists, across a broad spectrum of disciplines will benefit from the author's considerable industrial and academic experience. " ...an important book which I believe provides a rich source of information for anyone working in the field of surface texture and roundness." Professor Graham N. Peggs (NPL). " This book is a must for those involved in inspection and quality control ", Professor David. J. Whitehouse (formerly Chief Scientist, University of Warwick). This"...excellent new monograph will fill an Important gap that exists at a time when quality is uppermost in the minds of manufacturing engineers everywhere." Dr. John T. Berry (Coleman Profesor of Mechanical Engineering, Mississippi State University).
