equipment accessible to a wide range of users. “To ac- commodate the busy shop fl oor, there must be options for one-button operation and a logical, even linear logic fl ow,” he said. It needs to make clear what to look for in the monitor and the program of the software as it goes through a sequence, with as few button clicks as possible. “However, while on the shop fl oor is where you know if you are going to be successful; it is almost impossible to plan for every variance,” he said. Thus, they need to allow power users, such as quality professionals, access to a rich set of analysis features, which he notes their TMS software does.


When asked what new feature his customers are asking for, his answer was a bit surprising. “For most surface metrol- ogy devices, especially noncontact sys- tems like ours, more speed is not as big a request as other desires,” he answered. “Noncontact systems are already pretty fast.” What ranks higher on their wish list, according to Lakshmipathy, is even easier to use equipment and software, followed closely by documentation that shows correlation between the latest 3D technologies and the trusted decades- old stylus tools that are prevalent in the industry. “They want to know that results between various vendors and suppliers and principals that use both stylus and noncontact tools are harmonious. As institutional providers, we have to prove correlation to a standard stylus system, prove our system is easy to run and get the right answer,” he stated.


Practical Uses without Parameters


While precise measurement of pa- rameters such as Ra or Rq are valuable, there is also a niche for a hand-held


surface gage looking at localized de- fects that may affect performance and long term durability. These nicks and dents are outside of statistical mea-


surements, like Ra, which can calculate the same statistical answer for surfaces that are visually quite different.
