15th-16th March 2017, Renishaw Innovation Centre, UK
The 12th International Conference and Exhibition on Laser Metrology, Coordinate Measuring Machine and Machine Tool Performance, (LAMDAMAP 2017) will be organised by euspen drawing together many of the worlds distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering and medicine.
Advanced machine tool metrology supports superior part production; enabling, understanding and tracking of baseline performance machines.
Whilst the trend towards nanometre level surfaces finishes and features progresses, matching both form and finish coherently in complex parts remains a major challenge.
This year, the conference will focus on novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools, new developments in measurement techniques, performance evaluation for machine tools and CMMs, roughness and machine tool standards, and metrology in new fabrication techniques.
There are also keynote addresses that will be given by Prof Xiangqian (Jane) Jiang from the University of Huddersfield focusing on surface metrology for future manufacturing, and from Dr Joseph Mayr, IWF, ETH Zurich who will be discussing thermal error compensation of machine tools.
Networking is the key to the success of euspen’s events, and the LAMDAMAP event is designed to allow delegates, speakers, and exhibitors alike the ability to meet and discuss issues of immediate relevance to the area of machine tool metrology. To stimulate such cross fertilisation of ideas and experiences, in addition to the numerous on-site opportunities to have in-depth discussion with peers, delegates are able to attend a networking dinner on the evening of the first day.
Delegates will also be able to access the exhibition that runs alongside the conference, where they can come into contact with the cream of technology and service suppliers that represent the key strategic partners that manufacturing companies must access in order to reach their machine tool metrology goals.
The production of more and more accurate and smaller and smaller components relies and indeed is underpinned by advanced machine tool metrology, which facilitates the assessment of performance of machines. This requirement becomes more pressing as the drive in industry towards the greater use of nano-scale surface finishes and features gathers pace. It is vital that form and finish is produced consistently in small complex parts, and it is here that the key challenge for advanced metrology solutions exists today.
Therein the poster sessions, exhibition and time allocated for discussing presentations at the event, will allow the next generation of manufacturers to utilise all available advances in measurement techniques to meet tomorrow’s specifications.
Lamdamap Conference Fees
The conference fee is inclusive of a copy of the hard-back conference proceedings plus the networking dinner which will be held at Eastwood Park on 15th March 2017
