As the nights get shorter, the sun builds up its strength and we start to move into summer, welcome to an edition of QMT with a strong educational theme – or more correctly an edition with a practical focus on everyday metrology.
One article I found particularly useful was the back to basics article on laser trackers. It’s often easy to make assumptions about what you think you know – and good to have a chance to put yourself right without admitting what you don’t know.
And of course we have the second in our series of articles from NPL on meeting your measurement needs – as well as a guide to help you get to grips with changes to ISO 9001:2015.
If that wasn’t enough we also have some pretty unusual application stories – including a way to measure red-hot steel during the rolling process and how you check the size of holes in diamonds for waterjet cutting nozzles.
I hope that you find this issue an enjoyable and useful read.
