Seminar on Dimensional Measurement and its Assurance


Measurement assurance is important to ensure high quality and productivity in product design and manufacturing.  The National Metrology Centre (NMC) will conduct a proficiency test (PT) using a profile projector from 27 May 2013 to 7 Jun 2013 to improve the measurement capability and confidence of accredited calibration laboratories, R&D laboratories, testing laboratories and factories’ in-house calibration laboratories.

The PT will cover linearity, angular and squareness performance of a profile projector. It will  allow various laboratories to compare their measurement results with the reference values provided by NMC, with traceability to the primary standards. This seminar will include technical presentations on dimensional  measurement standards and a briefing session for the companies participating in the PT.
