AMRC Forum: large volume metrology

Thurday 27 June, Nuclear AMRC.

The Nuclear AMRC is hosting the latest AMRC Forum, presenting exclusive insight into some of the most innovative and powerful technologies for large volume metrology.

Large components for the energy sector can measure tens of metres in size and weigh many tonnes, but they still need to be engineered to accuracies of a few tens of microns.

Recent developments in mechanical coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and portable arms, as well as laser and optical scanning, have hugely increased the precision and flexibility of large volume metrology. But do they all measure up to industry demands?

The morning forum includes users and providers of these fast-developing technologies – including Rolls-Royce, National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Hexagon Metrology – exploring their application in component verification, real-time monitoring of deformation, and reverse engineering.
