MEASUREMENT OF SURFACE FINISH
: To measure the surface finish of the finished component using Talysurf tester.
: Talysurf Tester, Surface plate, Adopter for vernier height gauge.
:On any finished surface, imperfections are bound to be there and thesetake the form of a succession of hills and valleys which vary both in height and inspacing and result in a kind of texture which in appearance or feel is oftencharacteristic of the machining process and accompanying defects. The severalkinds of departures are there on the surface and these are due to variouscauses.
Methods of Measuring Surface Roughness
Surface inspection of comparison methods
Direct instrument measurementsIn comparative methods the surface texture is assessed by observation of thesurface. But these methods are not reliable as they can be misleading, if comparison is not made with surfaces produced by same techniques. Thevarious methods available under comparison method are: (i) Touch Inspection (ii)Scratch Inspection (iii) Microscopic Inspection (iv) Visual Inspection (v) SurfacePhotographs (vi) Reflected Light IntensityDirect Instrument Measurements enable to determine a numerical value of the surface finish of any surface. Nearly all instruments used are stylus probetype of instruments. These operate on electrical principles.
Taylor – Hobson Talysurf
:Talysurf is an electronic instrument working on carrier modulatingprinciple. The measuring head of this instrument consists of a diamond stylus of about 0.002mm tip radius and skid or shoe which is drawn across the surface by
