Abstract

Surface texture parameters have been used in industry to characterise surfaces since the early twentieth century but, despite the maturity of the subject, instrument comparisons still show large spreads in results. A significant contribution to these spreads is the effect of the software used to calculate the surface texture parameters. This paper presents the results of a comparison of a number of commercial software packages used to calculate surface texture parameters (profile parameters). The inputs to the software packages were reference measurement datasets and the results were compared to those obtained from reference algorithms available on the websites of NPL, PTB, and NIST.
