Finding Common Ground for Measurement Disagreement

The problem with all these methods is that while each is good in itsown right, there may be a bias seen among them. Each method has someslight variations that can cause differences in result. It may bedifferent gaging force, different process methods (such as thedifference between contact and air gauging), or different measuringtechniques such as

Converting Common Surface Texture Measurements

The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machiningprocess including the choice of tool, feed and speed of the tool,machine geometry and environmental conditions. This irregularityconsists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bitor a grinding wheel. These peaks and valleys can be measured and usedto define
