By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This topic bridges all fields within the automotive industry and is designed for engineers and technicians involved in: the specification of mechanical systems and components; failure analysis and warranty; quality control and measurement functions, manufacturing and process development. The areas of interest could include: sealing, sliding, cosmetic appearance, friction, leakage and more.
Participants should have a basic knowledge of mechanical terms such as friction, sealing, wear, etc.
"Extremely good introduction and overview of surface texture control. Working in the clutch development line of work, surface texture control is very important for performance. This class gave me a lot of valuable insight."
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
Dr. Malburg is the president of Digital Metrology Solutions, Inc where he provides dimensional and surface metrology consultation and develops analysis and control algorithms, software and custom instrumentation. He is also the president and chief software architect of Verified Technologies - the creators of the award-winning BrakeViewÂ® system for the measurement of rotating components and is an adjunct associate professor of engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Prior to that, Dr. Malburg spent 10 years at Cummins Engine Company as the Corporate Surface Metrologist. He is currently a member of the ASME B46.1 â€œSurface Textureâ€ 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. Mark Malburg holds a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering 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. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Warwick researching problems in instrument correlation in surface metrology applications.
