Error and Uncertainty in Metallographic Measurement

Introduction The idea of using ‘uncertainty’ has been slow to be adopted in many industries – this is perhaps understandable given the length of explanation required to cover all aspects of the general guide (134 pages in the GUM published by the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology). However, the reason for its introduction is …

Removing glue residue on Apex B and MagnoMet carrier plates

In Magnetic Systems, carrier plates are used to provide a flat and well supported surface for silicon carbide (SiC) paper.  If these papers are used heavily or for long periods, the pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) glue used can remain on the carrier plate after removal of the paper.  This can cause problems with flatness and …
