Topic: The movements of a measuring machine are described using a coordinate system
Speaker: Dr. Edinbarough, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Department of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering

Abstract:
The movements of a measuring machine are described using a coordinate system. The coordinate system, invented by the famous French philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes in the early 1660, is used to locate features relative to other features on workpieces. A coordinate measuring machine’s (CMM) three axes form the machine’s coordinate system. The CMM uses a probe to measure points on a workpiece. Each point on the work piece is unique to the machine’s coordinate system. The CMM combines these points to form a feature that can be related to all other features of the component. The CMM is capable of measuring feature dimensions to sub- micron accuracy. The Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) of the part can be inspected with high precision. The CMM uses a Personal Computer based Dimensional Measurement (PC-DMS) System software to automatically inspect complex geometries and manufactured parts. The CMM is used widely in industries for inspection and automated quality control. 

The presentation will include the concepts of coordinate metrology, programming aspects of CMM using the PC-DMS software and its applications in advanced manufacturing industries. The skills gap in coordinate metrology and the urgent need for trained personnel in PC-DMS programming and CMM operation will also be addressed.

Learning Objectives:
    a. Introduction to Coordinate Metrology
    b. Understanding the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)
    c. Familiarization of PC-DMS Programming
    d. Exposure to Automated Inspection and Quality Control
