Get Your Game On!

Are you ready for CMSC 2010?

Published: Monday, May 24, 2010 - 13:34

Yes, it’s time to get your game on—metrology game, that is. I invite you to join us in Reno, Nevada, where the Coordinate Metrology Society is in the final preparations for its 26th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). This year’s conference, sure to be a landmark event, will be held at Reno’s prestigious Grand Sierra Resort, July 12–16. The main focus of the CMSC has always been the transfer of technology within the portable, close-tolerance coordinate measurement world. This year’s conference will be, without a doubt, one of the most educational metrology events you will ever attend. During the course of four days, there will be more than 24 technical presentations, four seminars and workshops, more than 60 booths displaying the latest hardware and software, and countless networking events.

The CMSC is fast becoming a major international event, and that is truly evident when it comes to the technical papers being presented this year. Experts in all facets of the portable coordinate metrology industry, including daily users, engineers, and scientists from North America, Eastern and Western Europe, India, and Japan, will be presenting on a wide variety of topics. These range from the academic, such as laser tracker standards, equipment calibration, and training, to daily challenges, such as large-surface scanning and the integration of optics and electronics, to the almost impossible, such as measurements in hostile environments. This is just a sampling of the white papers being presented, which give attendees a glimpse into how the rest of the worldwide metrology community operates.

The seminars this year are equally educational with topics including certification of operators, 3-D imaging, on-site gauge repeatability and reliability (R&R) study and analysis, and the well-respected William Tandler presenting on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T).

CMSC 2010 kicks off with a keynote address from Thomas A. Greenwood, program director of the A350XWB leading-edge spar at Spirit AeroSystems.

Let’s not forget the exhibit hall. Manufacturers of hardware, software, and peripherals, as well as leading service companies will be showcasing cutting-edge technology and advancements. Networking events, both planned and spontaneous, will be ongoing.

This is not an event to be missed. So put your metrology game on and head for Reno, Nevada, July 12–16, where the cards will be stacked in your favor.
