The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has launched a new digital library of original technical papers delivered by metrology experts over the past 12 years at its annual conference—the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC). The library is an online archival of more than 100 technical papers and journals covering a broad range of industry topics including 3D measurement, inspection, assembly, best practices, new innovations, and more.

The release of these valuable assets is meant to further support the research, development, and progression of advanced manufacturing, scientific studies, industry standards, and smart factory initiatives. Developed in partnership with Quality Digest, publisher of the Journal of the CMSC since 2006, the periodical is distributed twice a year in the autumn and spring by the Coordinate Metrology Society. Each issue devotes its pages to the finest white papers presented by industry professionals at the annual CMSC. The new CMS library of technical papers and journals can be accessed at www.cmsc.org/technical-papers-journals.

(CMS: Weatherford, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced that Ed Morse, Ph.D., professor at UNC Charlotte, will present the keynote address at the 32th annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), July 25–29, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Murfreesboro, TN.

Since 1999, Morse has been a professor of mechanical engineering at UNC Charlotte, pursuing research in tolerancing and metrology. During this time, Morse has further extended his experience to large-scale metrology systems, including laser trackers, photogrammetry, and laser radar systems. He also spent a year at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), working in the large-scale metrology group from 2007 to 2008. Professor Morse’s areas of specialty are dimensional metrology, coordinate measurement machines, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), and statistical control. He currently serves as a team leader for the PrecisionPath Consortium for Large Scale Manufacturing, along with Ron Hicks, CMS PrecisionPath Chair.

(CMSC: Weatherford, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society, in collaboration with UNC Charlotte, today announced that the second working meeting of the PrecisionPath Consortium for Large-Scale Manufacturing will be held Feb. 24–25, 2016, at the UNC Charlotte Center City building in downtown Charlotte, NC. This working meeting will serve as a needs assessment and gap analysis workshop for the collaborative team working to identify and prioritize the technology needs of the aerospace, defense, energy, and other industries that manufacture large-scale, high-accuracy parts and products. This gathering is a continuation of their planning and visioning meeting held in late Oct., 2015. At that meeting, the group discussed critical production challenges and metrology system attributes, and solidified the framework of the PrecisionPath Roadmap. The new project is funded by an Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) Grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department.
