Wear Scars

Wear scars and material removal calculations are available in 4D InSpec’s measuring and analysis software.

By taking a direct measurement, you can obtain a peak to valley parameter easily using the analysis screen. But in the case of this sample, the surface around the wear is cylindrical. The result is that a pixel or two variation can produce a very different interpretation of the featured groove.

Using the built-in leveling masks, the plateaus to the left and right are treated as flat, meaning the roll-off of the cylinder doesn’t count against the measurement of the depth of the groove. 

It’s easy! Ask for a demo on your part.

Measuring Surface Features with High Resolution in Factory Environments

Because of the lack of rapid, accurate, shop floor measurement, inspectors often lack confidence in their assessments. The overly cautious estimations that result mean that rejection rates are typically much higher than necessary.

This short video shows you how quickly you can compensate for effects of a cylinder in the analysis software.
