surface roughness, Sa, Ssk, , hard turning, grinding.


In the automotive industry surface topography is an important issue. The working surfaces of the components require high precision machining. In this paper the minimum 3D roughness evaluation areas were determined to decrease the time and cost of measuring the components.
