In precision engineering industry, the functional properties of a component are affected by the boundary areas (or the surface) of the component. This aspect becomes all the more important when the surface contacts the surface of mating component and is operationally related to it. The unceasing demand for increased performance, interchangeability and functional reliability has resulted in shrinking of tolerances for a precision component. As the tolerances shrink the surface aspects of the component become more and more dominant and the dimensional aspects of surface finish get to be exceedingly important. A serious quantitative study of the quality of a surface becomes an inseparable part of component design, manufacture and inspection to ensure proper functional behaviour of the design. Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) is organizing a one-day training programme on “Surface Finish - Measurement & Improvement” to address its importance and methodologies of evaluation, in diverse range of manufacturing activities on 09 August 2019 at Gurgaon.

Focus Areas

  • Introduction to Surface finish
  • Importance, its occurrence and effects
  • Assessment of Surface finish - Systems and Parameters
  • Preferred values & relation between various parameters
  • Surface finish & manufacturing economy; surface finish & class of fits; Surface finish obtainable by different manufacturing processes
  • Measurement of surface finish - mechanical, optical and electric/electronic methods & instrumentation
  • Measurement of surface finish of inaccessible surfaces.

Key Take Aways

   After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -
   1. Appreciate what is finish of a surface and why is it important.
   2. Understand how it manifests on engineering components.
   3. Get to know what factors influence a surface and its finish.
   4. How to express surface finish and units of measurement.
   5. Understanding amplitude, spacing and hybrid parameters.
   6. Understand how surface finish affects economics of manufacture.
   7. Explanation of important and popular parameters.
   8. Know about various methods of measurement and empirical relations between various parameters.
   9. Get an idea about modern parameters for specialized uses.
  10. Why so many parameters and why there is no ‘one’ parameter.
