Title: Stylus Flight in Surface Profiling
Published: January 01, 1996
Abstract: In this paper, theoretical and experimental work on stylus flight is described. Experiments on the surfaces of different roughness specimens with sinusoidal, rectangular, triangular and random waveforms support the theoretical model, which predicts stylus flight from the traversing speed, stylus force, stylus radius and parameters of the surface.
