Speakers’ Name: Jacob Soendergaard, Sales Engineer, G.R.A.S Sound and Vibration
Topic: Making the correct microphone selection for your measurement “hand-on” demo.
Abstract Selecting a microphone for a measurement application often is not a straightforward process. There are large differences within the range of available measurement microphones, which determine their feasibility and suitability for a given application. The presentation and demonstration will emphasize the importance of selecting the correct microphone and choosing the correct orientation relative to the sound source. Examples will be shown of correctly made measurements compared to measurements with errors due to incorrect microphone selection and orientation.
Selection of the correct microphone for a measurement application
Speakers’ Name: James Whitley and Shawn Snell, Boeing EO&T Metrology and Test Equipment
Topic: Fluid Flow Measurement
Abstract: This “Hans-On Demonstration” will demonstrate a liquid non-intrusive method of calculating and calibrating in-line flow meters using sound waves to calculate flow.
Learning Objectives: To calculate fluid flow using sound waves.
Speakers’ Name: Reinhard Schwind, Sales Manager / Mass Metrology Sartorius Mechatronics Corporation
Topic: Direct Weighing vs. Mass Comparison
Abstract: Many of the measurements made in the field or in the laboratory to find how much something weighs are made not knowing the difference between mass and weight. This “hands-on” demonstration will show the difference between weighing something and mass comparison measurements and some of the variables that can affect each.
Learning Objectives: To understand that difference between weighing’s and mass measurements.
Speakers’ Name: Brian Peters, Regional Sales, Interface Inc.
Topic: Force Measurement: Understanding Eccentric Loading Conditions
Abstract: Errors in force measurements can be introduced through improper axial loading. Understanding the possible loading condition variables can help to avoid errors in force measurements.
Learning Objectives: The attendees will learn about loading conditions and have the opportunity to have their force/load questions answered.
Speakers’ Name: Jeff Gust, Chief Corporate Metrologist, Fluke Calibration
Topic: False Accept/False Reject – Examples of each and what they mean.
Abstract: Falsely accepting a calibration as in-tolerance or falsely rejecting a calibration as out-of-tolerance, otherwise known as “Decision Risk”, can negatively Metrology Labs and the users of Metrology products and services.
Learning Objectives: This hands-on demo will give the attendees an opportunity to identify each, learn its impact and how to account for “Decision Risk.”
A day of Measurement Lab learning: On October 11th NCSLI in conjunction with our host Cascade Engineering Services Inc. will be providing a low cost (free for members) hands-on workshop for Lab & Test personnel and their customers demonstrating many of the critical variables that can negatively impact product development, production and testing. Many measurements are made either in the field or outside the controlled calibration lab environment. Variables can potentially arise that create false acceptance, false rejection situations which can lead to unnecessary rework, increased cost and the passing of faulty product.
This “hands-on” workshop provides an insightful look at some of the factors hidden in a "measurement loop" that produce headaches, heartbreaks & cost overruns. Attendees will be divided into several groups. Each group will rotate through the different demonstrations in small groups of six to eight people. The subject matter expert will lead the attendees through the demonstration then assist with the measurements and discussions. After rotating through all the demos the attendees will then discuss their results with the rest of the groups near the end of the day.
Please join us to learn more about measurement practices. This event is suggested for: lab & test engineers & technicians, trainers, lab supervisors, inspectors, technical writers and quality professionals.
