Optical surface roughness measurement of machined surfaces

I. Peczeli, P. Richter, O. Berkes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An optical method is described that makes measurement of surface roughness of machined parts in a wide roughness range possible. The apparatus based on a diode laser can be mounted on CNC machining centers as diagnostic tool for checking tool wear. Principles of operation and calibration results are described.
