CMSC 2010

Join the Coordinate Metrology Society in Reno, July 12–16, at the spacious Grand Sierra Resort for the 26th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC).

 

Rather than focusing on sales, as do most trade shows, this unique event for 3-D coordinate metrology focuses on technical education, yet showcases the latest in cutting-edge portable coordinate metrology systems, software, and supporting hardware throughout 30,000 square feet of exhibition space.

 

For more information on the CMSC plus tour and recreation information (e.g., multiple social events in which to interact and network with the “Who’s Who” of the metrology world), visit www.cmsc.org/cmsc-attendee-information.

Technorazzi: Introduction to Laser Trackers

Many industries must precisely measure the three-dimensional features of large objects. An increasingly popular way to do this is with a laser tracker, which measures 3-D coordinates by tracking a laser beam to a retroreflective target held in contact with the object of interest.

 

Laser trackers replace conventional tools such as tape measures, piano wire, plumb bobs, and even theodolites—they are a more accurate and reliable tool that allow you to streamline your processes and gain confidence in your measurement results.

 

Laser trackers are typically used in applications such as alignment, machine installation, component inspect, tool building and setup, and reverse engineering.

 

In this demonstration you will learn about laser tracker technology, and see how it can be used in different applications.

Technorazzi Live: CPM Labs Gauge Use and Abuse

The basics of measurement tools and techniques never goes out of style. Quality Digest's Technorazzi series of online instructional videos, hosted by editor in chief Dirk Dusharme and presented by Craig Howell of CPM Labs, is today's best resource for tips and training on the proper use of everything from dial calipers to vision systems.

 

Now, Dirk and Craig will take it to the next level with a LIVE streaming video event that will offer instruction on the use of several typical pieces of measurement equipment. You'll have the opportunity to e-mail Dirk and Craig your questions and comments, which they'll address in a HANDS-ON, REAL-TIME manner. You'll be able to hear AND see their responses as they happen.

Carl Zeiss Microscopy’s picture

By: Carl Zeiss Microscopy

(Carl Zeiss MicroImaging Inc.: Thornwood, NY) -- The Primo Star iLED microscope now available with three additional fluorescence attachments that allow users to work with different dyes such as FITC, Dapi, and Rhodamine/Cy 3. This permits the use of the LED-based microscope for single fluorescence applications in training, routine procedures, and basic research. It is particularly robust and easy to use, and features an outstanding price-performance ratio, to which the long-lasting, inexpensive and energy-saving LED light source makes a valuable contribution. 

For training in particular, fluorescence excitation through LED illumination is beneficial as there are no warm-up or cool-down times, unlike fluorescence excitation using mercury vapor lamps. Furthermore, the excitation lamps no longer need to be readjusted, enabling the user to start working as soon as the light source is turned on. The iLED fluorescence attachment comes with practical eyecups, making it possible to perform fluorescence microscopy without a darkroom—in an auditorium, for example. A lever is used to alternate between brightfield and fluorescence microscopy. 

The Primo Star iLED was originally developed with the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics for a fast and reliable LED-fluorescence-based testing of tuberculosis. It has been on the market since October 2008.

Special Report: Hazardous Substance Process Management—Part 2

This is Part 2 of our series on hazardous substance process management.

 

In this episode we cover:

* Taiwan's electronics industry as the birth of Hazardous Substance Process Management

* Why Taiwan saw QC 080000 as a means to ease ROHS compliance

* The passing of ROHS-type legislation in California 

* How audits from registrars such as Intertek strengthen ROHS compliance
