QMT News: October 2017
Editor's Coment


Welcome to the Autumn edition of Quality Manufacturing Today. This issue picks up strongly on some of the prevailing megatrends across manufacturing.

Additive manufacturing, for example, is fast becoming a production process rather than just a prototyping technique.

But if you want to make metal parts by additive manufacturing to use in cars and planes, you need to be pretty sure that the quality is spot on. That means we need to develop new approaches in metrology to satisfy these stringent requirements –  our article from the AFRC’s Danny McMahon looks at one likely candidate.
Of course, there’s a lot more besides on the latest metrology products, applications and thinking, so I hope you enjoy reading this edition of QMT.
