The surface quality of machined parts depends highly on the surface texture that reflects the marks of the tool during the cutting process.
The effects of surface texture curvature on ice nucleation, local liquid confinement on freezing point depression, and mesoscale texture features on interfacial thermofluidics, have intertwined and sometimes counteracting impacts on surface icing behavior, which we aim at unraveling, to determine pathways to high performance surfaces.

The laser channel does not assume sphericity and is not subject to effects of optical and physical properties of particles or medium (such as refractive indices, absorption, surface texture, porosity, electrical conductivity, viscosity variations, Brownian motion or thermal convection).
The DataMan 7500 combines IDMax code reading software with UltraLight illumination technology that allows for reads regardless of marking method or of the part's material, shape or surface texture.
