functional parameters, kurtosis, skewness, tangential turning


Among other, more frequently analysed surface topography parameters, the function-defining parameters must be analysed in different machining procedures to outline their application possibilities. These values are the core roughness, the reduced peak height, the reduced valley depth, the skewness, and the kurtosis of the roughness profiles. Tangential turning is a promising machining procedure, which can produce ground-like surfaces with twist-free properties by defined cutting edged tools. The achievable productivity is also very high. Therefore, in this paper, these roughness parameters were analysed from 2D roughness profiles measured on surfaces machined by tangential turning.
