3D Surface Roughness and Wear Measurement, Analysis and Inspection

Reducing Noise

Surface roughness cause noise on cam shaft - Michigan Metrology

Noisy components are one of the most frequent quality and warranty issues. Components such as bearings, pumps, clutches, and brakes may experience noise, such as squealing and chatter, that may be related to surface texture or phenomena such as “stick-slip.”

Michigan Metrology provides volume measurement of surface roughness, and expert surface analysis, to pinpoint the causes of noise, as well as developing strategies for specifying and controlling surface texture to eliminate noise problems.

Issues we address:
Friction   Vibration   Squeaks   Fit   Appearance   Wear   Adhesion   Leaks
