This webinar focuses on how advanced optical profilers can be used to accurately assess and gauge ISO 25178 compliance of complex surface textures through the Sa areal roughness parameter
Today's manufacturing processes go beyond simple stamping, molding, or CNC machining. They often include advanced processes--like imprinting specific textures on surfaces, This now-common surface finishing process in manufacturing aims to improve the function of parts and components, extend their useful life, or enhance their aesthetics.
Geared towards viewers like quality control engineers, metrology engineers, material development researchers, application engineers for additive and 3D printing manufacturing, and designers of finishing means, this webinar explores:

|30 min||Finishing Process for 3D Printed Polymer Surfaces||Samuel Lesko, Ph.D.||This presentation explores the use of optical profiler techniques for post-processing and quality control in 3D-printed polymer manufacturing. In the included case study, Bruker optical profilers are used to assess and compare the areal parameters of a 3D-printed polymer part that has been subjected to different post-processing/finishing processes. Optical profilometry enables us to quantify and rank these finishing processes and select optimum processes to meet ISO 25178 standards.|
|30 min||Surface Texture and Paint Adhesion||Donald K.Cohen, Ph.D.||This presentation discusses how texture measurements of functional surfaces are limited by exploration equipment and how the SMART methodology for texture functionality research guides researchers toward the correct answers.|
|35 min||What Texture for What Functionality and Howto Characterize It?||Raphaël Delttombe, Ph.D.||This presentation covers the use of 3D optical profilometry, and multi-spectral analysis, to demonstrate correlation between the base substrate texture features to the final paint appearance.|
