Meeting Overview:

The NCSLI Washington/Oregon Section, would like to invite you to: present, exhibit sponsor and attend our Spring Section meeting on Thursday, March 7th at the Mitutoyo Showroom in Renton, WA! We wish to demonstrate the changing metrology landscape by demonstrating common problem areas in Dimensional measurement, highlighting new measurement methods, changes to Mitutoyo America will offer the ability to earn certification of knowledge and skills in dimensional calibration. The Level 2 hands-on performance tests for the calibration of micrometers and calipers will be available following the close of the NCSLI meeting.

Topic: Common Problem Areas in Dimensional Calibration

Speaker: Dr. Jim Salsbury, Mitutoyo America

Abstract:
This presentation will address a number of problem areas in dimensional calibration practice that are silently increasing quality risks for organizations. A standards-based approach is taken that utilizes the latest national and international standards to develop the most efficient, yet sufficient, calibration methods. This presentation will illustrate specific problem areas in the calibration of micrometers, gage blocks, calipers, indicators, surface plates, and coordinate measuring machines. This presentation will also highlight the free online calibration training videos that are available via Mitutoyo America and the new options for certification of knowledge and skills.

Topic: Measurement Uncertainty in Conformance Calibrations
Speaker: Dr. Jim Salsbury, Mitutoyo America

Abstract:
This head-turning wild-ride presentation goes deep into the conceptual definition of calibration to better understand the proper sources of measurement uncertainty to consider (with no math). This presentation is an excerpt from Dr. Salsbury’s 1-day tutorial on the evaluation of measurement uncertainty for calibrations that involve conformity assessment of measuring instruments (verification testing or tolerance-type calibration). New concepts and rules in key national and international standards have begun to dramatically decrease the measurement uncertainty values reported in these types of calibrations. These concepts are particularly important considering the new emphasis on decision rules in the latest ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
