Surface metrology seminar.

The ASME B46 committee on surface texture measurement and analysis will be presenting a free seminar on the latest updates to the ASME B46.1 Standard on Surface Texture Measurement/Analysis on April 24 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Airport Hotel in Romulus, Mich.

The editorial committee, led by Brian Renegar of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, has been working over the past few years to update the standard, and the revised standard is scheduled for publication later this year. Speakers at the seminar will include members from industry, government, and academia.

Although the event is free, participants must register to attend. Details are available on ASME's conference Web site at http://www.asmeconferences.org/B46Seminar/schedule.cfm.

The B46 Committee develops standards for technology in the field of surface texture metrology. It defines surface texture and the parameters for specifying surface texture. The terms and ratings are in the B46.1 Standard. The current standard dates to 2002. H.H.
