METAV 2018: 20th International Exhibition for Metalworking Technologies, Dusseldorf, Germany
Integrating industrial metrology into production processes
Quality is one of the most important competitive factors for every manufacturer. In order to convince prospective buyers, he has to have mastered all constituents of the quality process, from measuring capabilities and data evaluation all the way through to controlling the entire process. In addition, industrial metrology plays an important role in the context of digitising a production operation.

The Quality Area will showcase the entire bandwidth of measuring and testing technology, plus QM and evaluation systems. This means customers can obtain comprehensive information on which metrological solution is best suited to their own products, machines and processes. Under the aegis of the associated forum in the Quality Area, there will be in-depth discussions on how industrial metrology can be effectively integrated into production processes, from the viewpoints of both customers and vendors. Topics addressed will include integrated quality assurance on the machine tool, metrological acquisition of the model parameters, fusion of the data and models for the virtual machine and the virtual measuring process (CPPS), or the digitised, networked machine tool of tomorrow. The forum is being organised by the Faculty of Production Metrology and Quality Assurance of the Machine Tool Laboratory at RWTH Aachen University.

Reliability and Fitness for Purpose Testing of Flexible and Wearable Electronics, Webinar
Wearable electronics encompass a wide area of devices, including those embedded as flexibles, hybrid-systems and textiles. Typically in the electronics industry, we test the reliability of electronic assemblies using high humidity and high temperature as an accelerating factor. For many of the substrate materials involved, the use of high temperature is not appropriate to accelerate failure mechanisms to help predict device reliability. Additionally, high temperature is not always reflective of typical (or harsh) operating conditions for wearables, so we have investigated alternative suitable methods for testing these devices. Typical measurements include flex/bend testing, washing machine durability tests, stretch and stress testing. We are increasingly looking at methods for testing devices subjected to combinatorial harsh environments, where the test is composed of multiple stress factors which is more akin to real life use. Understanding the resulting failure modes observed from these tests is crucial for identifying the weak links limiting the device's reliability. Start Time: (14:30 hrs UK time) More ⇒

Nanoparticle concentration - critical needs and state-of-the-art measurement, Burlington House, London, United Kingdom
Nanoparticles are increasingly used in innovative products manufactured by advanced industries and provide enhanced, unique properties of great commercial and societal value. The measurement of number concentration of particles in colloidal suspension is of major commercial interest as it enables the optimisation of materials specification and design, and is essential for risk assessment and quality control. It also supports compliance with regulation and underpins any claim to reliability, performance and lifetime in the formulation of products containing particles.

In recent years, there have been substantial advances in the ability to directly measure particle concentration in colloidal suspension. However, no formal evaluation and validation of available techniques have taken place and nanoparticle reference materials that are certified for number concentration do not yet exist.

World Conference On Quality And Improvement, Seattle, Washington
The act of innovating is defined as “the introduction of new things or methods.” Innovation itself is neither a new concept nor a new practice, but the demand for innovation in the workplace has shifted dramatically. Out-of-the-box thinking, paradigm shifts, and challenging the status quo are all efforts that organizations have embraced for decades to gain advantage. However, today’s exponential pace of change has shifted innovation from a practice that brings advantage to a practice that is required just to keep up. This mandate exists both for organizations as a whole and for the individuals that work within them. At a professional level, the innovation of one’s self can only be fully realized through the embracing of change, the acceptance of its inevitability, and the acknowledgement that a faster future is already here. The future IS now, and both organizations and individuals have a choice to either lead the change it is bringing or be led by the change that occurs. It is within these disruptive conditions that ASQ invites you to Seattle for the 72nd hosting of the World Conference on Quality and Improvement and the next step in becoming a more innovative YOU!

NCSL International 2018 Workshop & Symposium: Measurements of Tomorrow
The long-anticipated redefinition of the SI base units in 2018 will constitute a revolutionary and historic transformation in the world of metrology. But how will it affect the day-to-day work of standards labs and their personnel?

Defining each base unit in terms of the fixed value of a physical constant not only removes the last artifact standard and provides a uniform conceptual basis for the entire system; it also makes scalable measurements readily achievable across orders of magnitude. But what changes will it require in the instruments and methodology we use, and the tests and evaluations we perform?

This year’s Workshop & Symposium, with the theme "Measurements of Tomorrow", promises to be one of the most exciting and valuable - because tomorrow is here.

    Simplicity for Metrology 4.0 #IMTS39, Chicago, Illinois
    It’s possible to define Metrology 4.0 as the next metrology revolution that will follow Industry 4.0. Part of this revolution involves shop-floor measurements happening right on the manufacturing floor, up to a complete integration of quality control methods into the manufacturing process. Automation seems to be the perfect solution to face the challenges that come along Metrology 4.0. However, most people often underestimate the complexity of integrating and automating metrology tools. For many companies, the dream of having a fully automated facility can quickly seem either unreachable or too expensive for the benefits that it can provide. Therefore, keeping the pace with Industry 4.0 could mean a real puzzle for the companies that count on innovation, automation and sophisticated processes to maintain their leading position in their respective industries! What if simplicity was the key to such a complex problem? This article focuses on solutions where simplicity becomes the competitive differentiator between products. This paper describes the various challenges of Metrology 4.0 and how, using simple yet powerful solutions, end-users can take on the next industrial revolution.

    National Mole Day 2018, Theme: Moley Potter
    Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.

    For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the molar mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an molar mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams. Similarly, a mole of neon has a molar mass of 20 grams. In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro's Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. This relationship was first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro (1776-1858) and he received credit for this after his death.

    26th (2018)General Conference on Weights and Measures, Paris, France
    The General Conference on Weights and Measures (French: Conférence générale des poids et mesures • CGPM) is the senior of the three Inter-governmental organizations established in 1875 under the terms of the Metre Convention (French: Convention du Mètre) to represent the interests of member states. The treaty, which also set up two further bodies, the International Committee for Weights and Measures (French: Comité international des poids et mesures • CIPM) and the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (French: Bureau international des poids et mesures • BIPM), was drawn up to coordinate international metrology and to coordinate the development of the metric system.

    The conference meets in Sèvres (south-west of Paris) every four to six years. Initially it was only concerned with the kilogram and the metre, but in 1921 the scope of the treaty was extended to accommodate all physical measurements and hence all aspects of the metric system. In 1960 the 11th CGPM approved the Système International d'Unités, usually known as "SI".

    The 26th meeting has been scheduled for 13-16 November 2018. The kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole will be redefined at this meeting. It is expected that this meeting will agree the redefinition of the SI. As part of this Conference, BIPM will be organising a number of activities, including a press conference, to mark the occasion and are looking to broadcast the event live.
