NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
Electronic balances are important equipment for accurate measurement of mass. Many industries are heavily dependent on accurate balances for production of goods and services. The use of inaccurate balances may have serious financial or legal consequences.
This course covers the fundamental principles of weighing, balance calibration and measurement uncertainty. Participants will have the opportunity to experience working with weights and get hands-on practice on how to calibrate an electronic balance.
Mr Lee Shih Mean and Mr David Lim are Senior Metrologist and Senior Technical Executives in NMC, A*STAR. Both of them have many years of experience in the areas of mass and balance calibration and are responsible for the establishment and maintenance of mass standards in Singapore. They have conducted many training courses for the industry over the years and both of them are qualified SAC-SINGLAS technical assessor. Shih Mean has also served as a technical peer reviewer for many overseas national metrology institutes.
This course will be useful for engineers, researchers and consultants involved in precision mass measurements that needs precise and accurate balances to ensure the highest quality products and measurement results.
