Purchasers of castings can specify and assess surface quality and surface texture more accurately and definitively using tactile comparators developed by Castings Technology International (Cti).
These provide a practical and functional alternative to photographic representation of casting surfaces in standards such as MSS SP-55-2001.
More than 2000 of these sets of comparators are used around the world by multi-national companies and small enterprises. The durable plastic comparator plates, actual replicas of relevant characteristics of surface finish, have proved to be a more attractive way of reaching agreement with casting suppliers on the required surface quality during contract negotiations. They also provide a basis for acceptance of the castings after order placement.
