Surface Roughness

  • Etele Csanády

Machined surfaces−regardless if they are made of metal, plastic or wood−are never perfectly smooth with protruding parts, valleys and peaks. These forms of surface irregularity are called roughness. Surface roughness can be caused by different factors: discontinuities in the material, various forms of brittle fracture, cavities in the texture (e.g., wood), radius of the tool edge, local deformations deriving from the free cutting mechanism (without counter blade).
