Latest Notepad Video: Roughness versus Wavelength

The second Notepad Series video from Digital Metrology Solutions has been released. The latest video looks at the process of separating data into features and considers shorter-wavelength “roughness” versus longer-wavelength “waviness” for a given application. Seeing the process drawn out, step by step, can really clarify how the roughness and waviness profiles are created, and what they really mean.

Digital Metrology Solutions recently announced the kickoff of its ‘Notepad Series’ videos. These short, informal sessions make surface texture understandable for those who rely on the information but are not necessarily experts in the field.

“This new video series is designed to introduce casual users to surface analysis,” said Mark Malburg, President of Digital Metrology. “Many technicians, researchers and engineers rely on surface data but only have a passing knowledge of how to explore and understand a surface. Slides, equations, and theory can sometimes get in the way. Each of these videos presents a single topic in just a few minutes. We take a concept down to the level of a simple drawing in real time, which provides an incredibly effective path to understanding.”

The Notepad Series departs from the typical web-based seminar content. “The Notepad Series flips this model upside down. The sessions are brief, informal, free, and there is no commitment or registration required for viewing.”

Malburg added that the videos serve as a catalyst for further training. “These videos elevate the basic knowledge level and make dedicated training/consulting more accessible and more effective.”

The Notepad Series videos are available at New videos will follow every few weeks.
