The 13th International Conference and Exhibition on Laser Metrology, Coordinate Measuring Machine and Machine Tool Performance, (LAMDAMAP 2019) 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.

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.

Conference Keynotes

Creating Production Machinery for the 4th Industrial Revolution

Synopsis: Much discussion of a 4th industrial revolution sights that future manufacturing will be based on increasingly automated and intelligent equipment that has higher levels of digital interconnectivity. From a view point of a SME precision equipment manufacturer this presentation details how “digitization” and ”integration” influences machinery product development, wealth generation and market penetration.

Data capture and analysis for process monitoring at the AMRC

Synopsis: To enable green button or closed-door manufacturing, process monitoring and process insight are key enablers. This talk will give an overview of some current process monitoring technology and its applications. It will also discuss the work being undertaken at the AMRC to capture machine tool and sensor data to provide insight into machining processes.

Technical Fellow

Conference Media Partner

The conference media partner is  Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing, an international peer-reviewed open access journal on the scientific fundamentals and engineering methodologies of manufacturing and materials processing published quarterly online by MDPI

This year, the conference will focus on novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools, new developments in measurement techniques, performance evaluation for machine tools and coordinate measuring machines, roughness and machine tool standards, and metrology in new fabrication techniques, such as additive manufacturing.

The authors of selected high standard research contributions from the conference will be invited to submit their original papers and contributions to a Special Issue “Selected Papers from LAMDAMAP 2019”.

Guest Editors are Prof. Dr. Liam Blunt and Dr. Wolfgang Knapp.
