Coordinate Metrology Society Releases Study Results

The society conducted a study at its most recent conference.

The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) of Benbrook, Texas, held its 2012 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC) in New Orleans, Louisiana. As part of the conference, CMS administered a measurement study to test the methodology of practical testing rather than the evaluation of measurement results. More than 90 CMSC attendees participated in a data-collection activity that involved the use of an articulated arm and/or laser tracker measuring a dedicated test piece or a motorcycle product. The results of the study are available in a report titled “The Importance of Practical Testing” which can be found on the CMSC website.
The 2013 edition of CMSC will be held July 22-26 in San Diego, California. CMS members and metrology professionals in manufacturing, science research and academia are invited to submit abstracts for technical papers and presentations related to the application of 3D coordinate measurement systems, industry best practices and scientific research. The deadline for abstracts is March 15, 2013.
