Digital Metrology takes the mystery out of measurements

The field of metrology is one that is depended upon by many industries, however metrology training if offered by relatively few universities. Digital Metrology is, first and foremost, committed to the application of metrology and in doing so it is committed to educating the users of metrology. The educated customer is one of the metrology community’s greatest assets.


Onsite Training

We understand that most people use metrology as a tool – something to help them do their job.  That principle drives our training approach.  Some people teach metrology for the sake of metrology – we focus on how metrology can help you do your job.  Classes are offered for “An Introduction to Surface Texture” and “An Introduction to Roundness”.  Specialize topics training topics can be developed at the customer’s request.

A typical “Training Day” is made up of a morning session covering the general principles of surfaces, their measurement and how we describe them.  The afternoon session is a time where we go deeper into your specific areas of interest.  Topics can cover a wide range of topics such as:

  • Sealing surfaces
  • Harmonics Analysis
  • Cylinder bore surfaces
  • Porous surfaces
  • Crosshatch and surface “lay”
  • Surface implications for GD&T
  • Surface defect detection and analysis
  • Highly stressed surfaces
  • Profile Geometry Control
  • Cosmetic surfaces
  • Gear noise
  • Comparing results between customer/supplier
  • Can I trust my measurement?  (R&R versus uncertainty)
  • And many more…
