A roughness profile and a set of parameters can tell you a lot about a surface texture. But you may also need to see the actual surface to know how well the tool is cutting, whether it’s smearing the metal, or creating torn and folded metal.
TraceBoss+ lets you analyze your surfaces by the numbers, and it also helps you SEE what’s happening with your process. This short video shows how the Image Explorer feature lets you import an image of a surface, calculate the crosshatch angle, and zoom and pan to explore the surface quality. Best of all, you can save that image and the numerical results in a single file! Check out TraceBoss+, and download a free demo, at digitalmetrology.com.
