The perfect part. The Holy Grail of manufacturing today is to produce parts with absolutely no quality defects, zero scrap rate, and no time required for change over to new product builds when required. This basic driving force behind manufacturing has now transformed into Industry 4.0 concepts, such as embedded or in-line quality and measurement systems. Join us for a webinar to look over what some of these concepts look like today and where are we going in the not so distant future with the automation of in-line metrology.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How automated in-line metrology moved forward in recent years
  • What obstacles are there to overcome?
  • What can we anticipate in this area over the next 5-10 years?
