QMT News: September 2015
Editorial comment: A satisfying dish

There's plenty of food for thought in this issue of QMT. How about this for a starter? Coventry University's Trevor Toman says "Business needs to get away from the notion that all measurement is correct, because there is a probability that our measurements are incorrect."

Find out what he has to say after that on page 14. There is further mental nutrition in our cover story from Markus Fabich of Olympus, who looks at how to make sure you are seeing what you want in quantitative digital light microscopy.

We are also looking at some pretty diverse technology applications too - ranging from using non-contact sensors to test composite structures for the fuselage of the Airbus A350 XWB, to looking inside the skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex using the world's biggest X-ray computed tomography scanner.

And while you are digesting that, then why not finish off with a selection from our new product pages. There are some interesting and innovative ideas there, including a ‘pay-as-you-go' probing system and a complete automated shop floor inspection system

So I hope you enjoy reading this issue - bon appetit!
