The future of manufacturing and inspection

The future of manufacturing and inspection
Metrology is of fundamental importance to future factories because so much factory efficiency relies on accurate data. A process or product cannot be improved unless it can be measured accurately. Metrology, the science and processes of measurement, captures data about both tooling and components to allow new manufacturing processes – such as additive manufacturing and robot-operated machining – to be tested and perfected.
