The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced that it will host a slate of 21 original, expert-authored white papers and presentations to be delivered at the 2019 Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), which will cover research, innovations, best practices and application successes. The annual gathering will be held at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld in Orlando, FL, July 22-26, 2019. The five-day event provides an educational atmosphere for attendees and exhibitors to share experiences, challenges, research, concepts and theory, CMS reports.
CMSC programming offers technical presentations from leading companies and organizations including Spirit Aerosystems, Newport News Shipbuilding, Electroimpact, Porta Performance, Wagstaff Inc., Parker Intellectual Property Enterprises and JDP Metrology Consulting. The scientific community is represented with papers chosen from NIST, National Solar Observatory, Argonne National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Prominent educational institutions from around the world will also present technical papers, including the University of North Carolina, Charlotte Center for Precision Metrology, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, University of Nottingham, University College London, Shanghai Institute of Metrology and Testing Technology and Tianjin University. Each year, the CMS Executive Board peer reviews and ranks top selections from the conference technical paper roster to be published in their biannual Journal of the CMSC.
The CMSC's slate of original content and selection of topics ranges from emerging trends to the application of metrology techniques and technology. Subject matter is extensive from “How to Get the Most Accuracy out of Your PCMM” to the presentation on “Tracker Kinematics and Uncertainty Using Quaternion.” Other experts share experiences such as DKIST’s Journey of Using a Laser Tracker, Dynamic 3D Measurement of a Deployable Gossamer Antenna Structure Via Multi-Camera Photogrammetry in Zero Gravity, and Creating a New Concept in Performance-Built Sport Catamarans. Application-level presentations will cover topics such as Using Coordinate Measurement Machines To Shorten Time To Market For Aerospace Engine Components, and Thickness Inspection of Composite Parts.
The conference targets metrology practitioners, quality control managers, manufacturing executives, scientists, students, and educators — from prominent science/research laboratories, educational institutions and industries such as aerospace, satellite, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation and general engineering. CMSC attendees will find non-stop opportunities to learn about technology achievements, network with master users, and get an overall picture of the state of the metrology industry.
