Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Equipment / Surface Finish & Measurement Equipment Needed
Posted:  07 Oct 2014 21:55   Last Edited By: Stoneridge, Inc.
I am looking for suggestions on equipment that can scan a black 33% GF Nylon 6/6 valve seat surface and give us dimensional and finish measurements. The seat is about 14mm below the datum. I need to measure that depth, parallelism of the seat to the datum, flatness of the seat, and the surface finish (roughly 0.8).

I need something relatively fast and easy to use in a production inspection room environment (not on the floor, but not in a lab either).

Has anyone specified something like this? If so, could you point me in the right direction?

Hi James,

I cannot say for sure what would be your best bet for equipment necessary, but the following information is who I would generally call.  They carry a wide array of measurement options.
