Metrology Theory

Metrology theory training seminar

Advanced customer application specific analysis*.Metrology theory training seminar: two levels

Level 1 - Introduction (Roundness/Surface)
This seminar would be ideal for attendees with little or limited knowledge of metrology theory.
The information gained would help understand the best practices for characterising a measurement result, accurately and reliably.

Attendee expertise rating: One
Ideal for instrument operators, design engineers and metrology managers.

Level 2 - Advanced (Roundness/Surface)
A great addition to our basic metrology course, or for those with a previous knowledge of metrology theory.
The seminar will reinforce the attendee’s current knowledge and will allow them to understand basic measurement uncertainty and reliability.

Attendee expertise rating: Two
Ideal for advanced instrument operators, programmers and metrology managers with experience of using Taylor Hobson instruments.
