Measurement Technology – A Driver of Innovation in Automation and Quality Assurance

This year the 3D Metrology Conference (3DMC) will take place in Aachen, Germany from November 15th to 17th. The 3DMC is one of the most important conferences in the field of industrial measurement technology and is being organized for the seventh time by the WZL of the RWTH Aachen University in cooperation with the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the University College London (UCL) and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).

After successful editions in Aachen, Hamburg and London and most recently two virtual events, the conference is now returning to its place of foundation, the Campus Melaten. Up to 200 industrial users and academically renowned experts will exchange ideas at the 3DMC and shape the innovative and open character of the event. It is also reflected in the program design: namely a top-class lecture program is paired with an open industrial exhibition, special interest sessions and dedicated network formats. Prof. Ben Hughes and Prof. Robert Schmitt will moderate and design the event as chairman and host.

The focus of the conference is on measurement technology as a driver of innovation in automation and quality assurance. On the one hand, industrial end users present successful use cases from various sectors such as from automotive engineering, aviation and the energy sector. On the other hand, leading international scientists will present advances in measurement technology itself, which enable new applications.

3D data and machine vision form the DNA of the conference as core topics across all contributions and are complemented by other technologies from the fields of digitization and artificial intelligence.

As a further innovation, selected lectures are supplemented by an associated peer-reviewed contribution in the Open Access Journal Metrology. The conference language is English.
