Trends in the diagnostic of metal surfaces micro-geometry

  • 1 Technical University of Košice, Slovak Republic


Surface quality and its evaluation is currently a very important part of surface preparation for all types of technologies involved in surface formation. Knowledge of the new surface formation mechanism is of great importance from the point of view of production, because it allows to understand the nature and properties of the newly created surface and thus gives the opportunity to both improve the processes used and create a smooth process. surfaces. Therefore, any changes that occur in the surface layer of the component can be considered as changes in the surface quality. The paper deals with the expansion of current knowledge in the evaluation of metal surfaces microgeometry in terms of current trends.
