Measurement Professionals Convene at CMSC 2019 in Orlando, Florida


Orlando, FL – June 6, 2019 – The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announced today  it will host a slate of 21 original, expert-authored white papers and presentations to be delivered at the 2019 Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), which will cover research, innovations, best practices and substantive application successes. The annual gathering will be held at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld® in Orlando, Florida, from July 22 – 26, 2019. In its 35th year, the CMS has long served the specialized needs of 3D measurement /inspection professionals and scientists worldwide, now including both the portable and traditional coordinate measuring machine (CMM) communities. The five-day event provides a welcoming, educational atmosphere for attendees and exhibitors to share experiences, challenges, research, concepts and theory.

CMSC programming offers substantive technical presentations from leading companies and organizations including Spirit Aerosystems, Newport News Shipbuilding, Electroimpact, Porta Performance, Wagstaff Inc., Parker Intellectual Property Enterprises, and JDP Metrology Consulting. The scientific community is well represented with papers chosen from NIST, National Solar Observatory, Argonne National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Prominent educational institutions from around the world will also present technical papers, including UNCC Center for Precision Metrology, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, University of Nottingham, University College London, Shanghai Institute of Metrology and Testing Technology, and Tianjin University. Each year, the CMS Executive Board peer reviews and ranks top selections from the conference technical paper roster to be published in their prestigious, biannual Journal of the CMSC. 

The CMSC’s industry reputation is once again preserved with its slate of original content and broad selection of topics from emerging trends to the application of metrology techniques and technology. Subject matter is extensive from the user-friendly How to Get the Most Accuracy out of Your PCMM to the high-level presentation Tracker Kinematics and Uncertainty Using Quaternion. Other experts share experiences such as DKIST’s Journey of Using a Laser Tracker, Dynamic 3D Measurement of a Deployable Gossamer Antenna Structure Via Multi-Camera Photogrammetry in Zero Gravity, and Creating a New Concept in Performance-Built Sport Catamarans. Application-level presentations will cover topics such as Using Coordinate Measurement Machines To Shorten Time To Market For Aerospace Engine Components, and Thickness Inspection of Composite Parts. 

For more than three decades, the CMS has hosted their annual conference in a new venue each year across North America. Designed to empower the rapidly evolving measurement profession, the conference attracts metrology practitioners, quality control managers, manufacturing executives, scientists, students, and educators — hailing from prominent science/research laboratories, educational institutions, and industries such as aerospace, satellite, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation, and general engineering. CMSC attendees will find non-stop opportunities to learn about technology achievements, network with high-level master users, and get an overall picture of the state of the metrology industry.
