3D Surface Roughness and Wear Measurement, Analysis and Inspection

How “Rough” is Roughness?

We know that measuring surface roughness is important for performance, quality, and durability. But how “rough” are the typical “average roughness” values that we see on prints and specifications? In this video we put roughness values to some common automobile components to make it a little easier to visualize, say, a 2 micron Ra surface texture.
