New research findings show how engineering firms can make major gains in productivity and efficiency by reducing the often-considerable time-lag between the manufacture of components and checking their precision on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). To ensure complete accuracy, CMMs are housed in a strictly temperature-controlled environment. But manufacturing processes often lead to big increases … Continue reading New temperature measurement technique boosts efficiency of component manufacture
The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and the National Measurement Institute (NMI), which share areas of common interest in both measurement and research, have signed a MOU formalising collaboration. Together the two organisations are primary custodians of national infrastructure and facilities underpinning both Australia’s research in nuclear science and technology and metrology. ANSTO … Continue reading ANSTO and NMI sign collaborative MOU
