Workshop 1: Industrial in-process manufacturing metrology

Euskalduna Jauregia (room tbc)
Monday 3rd June 2019
Time: 12:00- 15:00

Facilitator : Prof Richard Leach, University of Nottingham, UK

For advanced economies to remain globally competitive, they must transition toward high-value manufacturing as we move towards “Industry 4.0”, sometimes referred to as the 4th Industrial Revolution. Future products will be typified by high levels of innovation, increased complexity and, especially, high levels of precision and quality. To support the manufacture of such challenging products and to increase the degree of automation in manufacturing, increased reliance will be placed on metrology; the key to control. Metrology allows the digital signature of a product to be traced through the entire manufacturing process, allowing digital data to be traceable, trustworthy and effective. Whereas metrology has traditionally been carried out after manufacturing, the trend nowadays is for “integrated metrology”. The result of the measurement can be used to control the process and/or to inspect the quality of the product. Here, we define “Integrated metrology” as any technology that uses in-process, in-situ, on-machine or in-line measurement, with or without feedback mechanisms for process control or condition monitoring. The result of the measurement can be used to control the process and/or to inspect the quality of the product. This workshop brings together some of the leading industrial players in integrated metrology, who will present the state of the art, latest trends and open questions.

Workshop 2: EU dissemination project Multifunctional ultrafast micro-probes for on-the-machine measurements

Euskalduna Jauregia (room tbc)
Monday 3rd June 2019
Time: 15:00- 18:00

The project co-ordinator is Uwe Brand
Coordinator of EMPIR project MicroProbes, PTB Braunschweig

Traceable measurements of surface form and property are essential for controlling the use of or assessing the condition of machined parts and tools in high precision mechanical manufacturing machines especially when these components are subject to wear and surface contamination. Therefore, this project will develop new tactile microprobes for reliable and ultrafast, on-the-machine (i.e. in-line) topographical micro-form and roughness measurements that are 30 times faster than con­ventional methods and fast methods using contact resonance and force-distance curves to measure adhesion, stiffness, friction, coating thickness and to detect contaminants through adhesion contrast.

Workshop 3: EU dissemination project Process Fingerprint for Zero-defect Net-shape MICROMANufacturing.  Special Workshop facilitated by European Innovative Training Network MICROMAN

Euskalduna Jauregia (room tbc)
Monday 3rd June 2019
Time: 15:00- 18:00

The project co-ordinators include Guido Tosello, DTU; Oltmann Riemer, IWT; and others;
MICROMAN (http://www.microman.mek.dtu.dk/)

“Micro Manufacturing Technologies from the MicroMan project (European Innovative Training Network MICROMAN “Process Fingerprint for Zero-defect Net-shape MICROMANufacturing”

The continuous trend towards miniaturization and multi-functionality embedded in products and processes calls for an ever increasing innovation, research and development within the European manufacturing sector. A necessary condition for the European productive sector to be at the global forefront of technology, ensuring job creation and sustainable growth, is to have access to innovative, entrepreneurial, highly skilled research engineers in the fields of micro manufacturing, micro product/process development and quality control.
