Digital Metrology Launches ‘Notepad Series’ Videos for Teaching Surface Texture Analysis

Videos address common topics related to surface specification, measurement, and interpretation, in five minutes or less

Published: Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 11:00

(Digital Metrology Solutions: Columbus, IN) -- Digital Metrology Solutions, provider of measurement software, consulting, and training, has announced the kickoff of its “Notepad Series” videos. These short, informal sessions make surface texture understandable for those who rely on the information but are not necessarily experts in the field. Each video addresses common topics related to surface specification, measurement and interpretation, in five minutes or less.

“This new video series is designed to introduce casual users to surface analysis,” said Mark Malburg, President of Digital Metrology. “Many technicians, researchers and engineers rely on surface data but only have a passing knowledge of how to explore and understand a surface. Slides, equations, and theory can sometimes get in the way.

Each of these videos presents a single topic in just a few minutes. We take a concept down to the level of a simple drawing in real time, which provides an incredibly effective path to understanding.”

The Notepad Series departs from much of the web-based content that companies are currently producing. “Slideshow-based webinars and product demos tend to put the emphasis on capturing contact information rather than truly educating viewers,” said Malburg. “The Notepad Series flips this model upside down. The sessions are brief, informal, and free, and there is no commitment or registration required for viewing.”

Malburg added that the videos serve as a catalyst for further training. “These videos elevate the basic knowledge level and make dedicated training/consulting more accessible and more effective.”

The first Notepad Series videos are available at digitalmetrology.com/notepad-series. New videos will follow every few weeks.

Digital Metrology develops general use and custom measurement software for exploring and understanding data. Rather than just reporting numbers, our software’s easy-to-learn tools let you interact with measurement data, interpret it, and use it to improve processes and products. We also develop custom measurement systems that generate “information” rather than simply reporting “data.” We accomplish this by first gaining a thorough understanding of our clients’ measurement needs, then developing systems that express the required information in the clearest, most reliable format.
