Paper Abstract

As the standards of quality of a product increase, so also does the importance of the roughness measurement of technical surfaces. In the near future the most important methods for on-line measurement will be those, that work on a non-tactile basis. In this report, a new optical method is presented and described from a more experimenta] point of view to emphasize the application-oriented development of this electro-optical measuring device. Beginning with some remarks on the more theoretical characteristics, experiment results will be presented that have been obtained from both standardized and technical surfaces. The results reveal the ability to measure surface roughness in the range of approximately Ra = 0,06-10 um.
