    9/14/2018Simplicity for Metrology 4.0 #IMTS39, Chicago, IllinoisIt’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.

    9/21/2018Calculating Residual Stress from the Measured Strain, WebinarOne of the most crucial points when doing a residual stress analysis is the calculation of the results, starting from the measured strains. The hole drilling method provides a very well-known calculation in accordance with the ASTM E837 standard. There are also additional options that have been developed in recent years, each one having advantages and disadvantages. This webinar will provide some suggestions and hints to improve the calculation of the residual stress by hole drilling, with some practical examples and a focus on the typical uncertainty of this type of analysis.
