Roughness Inspection Driven by Manufacturing Data

© Fraunhofer IPT

Can conventional inspection for surface quality be replaced by a targeted evaluation of manufacturing process data?

Challenge and Motivation

  • Varying surface quality during machining due to occurring vibrations.
  • Expensive quality assurance and visual inspection due to varying surface quality.


  • Assess surface quality and reducing conventional inspection efforts by analyzing manufacturing process and sensor data.
  • Presentation of a first framework implementation approach at Fraunhofer IPT (dPart®).
  • Co-creation workshop(s) on industrial demands, further implementation and industrialization of the framework together with industry partners.
