‘METROLOGY BREW’ News Bulletin – February 13th

Read a summary of metrology and smart manufacturing news from the past 7 days.

Adaptation of Measurement To Process-Integrated Metrology

Metrology News recently sat down with Dr. Heiko Wenzel-Schinzer, CDO (Chief Data Officer) of the Wenzel Group, for a discussion on his views on the future role of dimensional measurement in the new era of smart manufacturing and how process-integrated metrology is viewed, along with its challenges, from both supplier and user perspectives … read more

3D Algorithms Applied To Muography Measurements To Image Nuclear Reactor

The inspection of very large or dense structures represents one of the biggest challenges for nondestructive techniques. For such objects, a particularly powerful technique is muography, which makes use of free, natural cosmic-ray muons. This technique has been applied to provide two-dimensional (2D) images of nuclear reactors … read more

Increased Quality Through Optical Inspection

Modern production systems are characterized by high speeds coupled with high quality demands. This places the highest demands on quality control. The most important non-destructive method for inspection is the automatic processing and evaluation of images taken with cameras directly in production. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional methods are used … read more

Flush and Gap Verification With Advanced 3D Laser Profilers

A common application in the automotive industry is flush and gap inspection to ensure that vehicle panels are aligned properly. Although this application appears relatively simple, the value of the flush and gap inspection system lies in the details. For example, a 2D system may determine if a gap is consistent between a door and a body panel … read more

Multimodal Non-Destructive Testing Augmented With New Discipline

Spectroscopy by means of ultra-short waves in the terahertz range is a very promising method for volumetric testing in non-conductive materials. It has been integrated for the first time as an additional technology in a multimodal ACCUBOT non-destructive testing (NDT) system from FILL Gesellschaft m.b.H. as part of the three-year project … read more
