3D Surface Roughness and Wear Measurement, Analysis and Inspection

Decreasing Vibration

Surface roughness causes vibration - Michigan Metrology

Shudder in a car’s brakes or steering mechanism can give an impression of poor quality. But far more than just an annoyance, vibrations in cars, industrial machinery, and aircraft components can lead to premature wear and, potentially, component failure.

In many instances, close inspection of the surface roughness of mating components can uncover the sources—and potentials cures—for vibration. Michigan Metrology performs quality and wear analysis to determine why some parts lead to vibration issues while others do not.

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