B46.1 Webinar on the Filtering of Surface Profiles

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:


On April 12, 2012, ASME presents a free webinar on the filtering of surface profiles. Filtering is one of the most important topics when it comes to specifying and controlling surface attributes such as roughness, waviness, and form error. This webinar provides a basic understanding of what filtering is and how it is used to separate these regimes. The material is presented in a case-study based approach -- focusing more on the proper selection and application filters rather than the underlying mathematics.

Instructor Bio:

Dr. Mark Malburg holds a BSME and MSME from Michigan Technological University. His graduate work at Michigan Tech addressed the characterization of plateau-honed surfaces and the approach he developed was later adopted as an International Standard. Dr. Malburg completed his Ph.D. at the University of Warwick researching problems in instrument correlation in surface metrology applications. He spent 10 years at Cummins Engine Company as the Corporate Surface Metrologist. In 1999 he formed Digital Metrology Solutions – providing custom metrology software development, training and consulting. Dr. Malburg is also the president and chief software architect of Verified Technologies – the creators of the award-winning BrakeView® system for the measurement of rotating components.

Dr. Malburg is an adjunct associate professor of engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is currently a member of the ASME B46.1 “Surface Texture standards committee, a member of the B89 committees for "Roundness", "Straightness" and Flatness", and is a United States Subject Matter Expert for several ISO committees under ISO/TC213 for surface and form metrology. Dr. Malburg holds patents for various measurement and analysis methodologies and has published numerous metrology-related papers and articles.
