Description:

Neuware - 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). 356 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The subject of this book is surface metrology, in particular two major aspects: surface texture and roundness. It has taken a long time for manufacturing engineers and designers to realise the usefulness of these features in quality of conformance and quality of design. Unfortunately this awareness has come at a time when engineers versed in the use and specification of surfaces are at a premium. Traditionally surface metrology usage has been dictated by engineers who have served long and demanding apprenticeships, usually in parallel with studies leading to technician-level qualifications. Such people understood the processes and the achievable accuracies of machine tools, thereby enabling them to match production capability with design requirements. This synergy, has been made possible by the understanding of adherence to careful metrological procedures and a detailed knowledge of surface measuring instruments and their operation, in addition to wider inspection room techniques. With the demise in the UK of polytechnics and technical colleges, this source of skilled technicians has all but dried up. The shortfall has been made up of semi­ skilled craftsmen, or inexperienced graduates who cannot be expected to satisfy tradition al or new technology needs. Miniaturisation, for example, has had a pro­ found effect. Engineering parts are now routinely being made with nanometre surface texture and fiatness. At these molecular and atomic scales, the engineer has to be a physicist.
