The Difference Between Ra and Rz

2020-10-19 11:29:32

 

 

The methodology of measurement and what is measured when calculating Ra and Rz are quite different. This is critical to understand if you will not be paid for your parts because the Ra you measured is not in fact the Rz surface profile that customer specified.

 

What is Ra?

What is Ra

 

Ra is calculated by an algorithm that measures the average length between the peaks and valleys and the deviation from the mean line on the entire surface within the sampling length. 

 

Ra averages all peaks and valleys of the roughness profile and then neutralizes the few outlying points so that the extreme points have no significant impact on the final results.

 

What is Rz?

What is Rz

 

“Rz is calculated by measuring the vertical distance from the highest peak to the lowest valley within five sampling lengths, then averaging these distances. Rz averages only the five highest peaks and the five deepest valleys—therefore, extremes have a much greater influence on the final value.”

 

Ra is the arithmetical average value of all absolute distances of the roughness profile from the center line within the measuring length.

 

Rz is the average maximum peak to valley of five consecutive sampling lengths within the measuring length. 

 

Ra averages all measurements and does not have any discriminating value in separating rejects from acceptable cylinders.”
