Abstract

The surface texture of a manufactured part is influenced by the manufacturing processes used to produce the part. Changes in these processes will result in changes in the surface texture of the part. In order to characterise and optimise the machining process variables that will affect the functionality of the crankshafts, the surface texture of crankshaft samples, subjected to different manufacturing techniques, has been investigated. A focus variation microscope and a contact stylus instrument were used for the measurements. The selection of filters in evaluating areal surface texture parameters, and a comparison between the optical and stylus instruments is discussed. The response of areal surface texture parameters to changes in machining process variables is also highlighted.
