FUNDAMENTALS OF MANUFACTURING (DIMENSIONAL METROLOGY)
Many manufacturing tasks involve basic skills, such as reading technical drawings, using measuring tools, moving machinery safely, and so on. How can you best impart these skills needed to work in manufacturing? Festo provides varied, practical training opportunities.
Dimensional metrology: Key product measurement skills
In today’s competitive global environment, manufacturing workers need a broad skill set to support their company’s success. Accurate measurement of product dimensions – length, angle, roundness, diameter and more – is critical in the industry to allow quality control at various stages of the manufacturing process. It helps ensure products strictly comply with design specifications. It is the basis for manufacturing quality and excellence.
Product inspection and measurement are part of the daily tasks of many maintenance and production workers such as CNC machine operators, quality control technicians, product designers, mechanical engineers, CMM technicians, and industrial mechanics.
The required knowledge and skills are covered by dimensional metrology – the science of measurement applied to the manufacturing industry
