Coordinate Metrology Society Launches 3DMU Learning Portal
The Coordinate Metrology Society announces their newest training asset, 3D Measurement U, an online video training resource for the organization, educators and metrology practitioners, in partnership with Quality Digest.
The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announces their newest training asset, 3D Measurement U (3DMU) in partnership with Quality Digest. 3DMU is an online video training resource for the organization, educators, and metrology practitioners. The new resource offers a first wave of informational videos containing best practices, tricks of the trade, and other themes presented by experts in the field who are members of the CMS. Industrial measurement topics include measurement uncertainty, the Unified Spatial Metrology Network, probe compensation, distance meters, theodolites, laser trackers, laser scanners and more. This valuable field of videos will be steadily expanding in 2020 and beyond. 3DMU subscriptions are now available for purchase by individuals and organizations. CMS Members receive special pricing, and student groups can get bundled pricing with deep discounts. Metrologists are invited to register for a day-long test drive of 3DMU at no charge at 3DMU.org.
The CMS also officially introduces its first 3DMU training program entitled "Dimensional Measurement Solutions." All training videos are two to four minutes in length and address a single metrology topic. The training platform is well organized with an easy to manage playlist so users can quickly find the topic they want, when they need it. A noteworthy bonus is the user's ability to access this information on-demand from the shop floor, at a customer site, or from home. This valuable video training resource will also help metrologists build their base knowledge in preparation for CMS Level-One and Level-Two Certification assessments.
“We are very pleased to partner with the Coordinate Metrology Society to develop and produce 3DMU," states Jeff Dewar, CEO of Quality Digest. "There is a clear need for on-demand knowledge in the ever-changing metrology marketplace. Measurement and inspection practitioners will have 24/7 access to 3DMU so they can learn about metrology at their own pace, from any location. With these resources, future measurement professionals will have a much better chance to acquire the skills necessary to meet the needs of their employer or their respective industry."
"For the Coordinate Metrology Society, it is all about measurement and continuing education opportunities for our membership and the industry-at-large. We are proud to offer 3DMU in collaboration with Quality Digest," states Scott Sandwith, CMS Executive Committee. "From inception, this video training system was designed with intuitive navigation and easy access to content for anyone interested in learning about our discipline. 3DMU provides an excellent user experience for remote learners and students to jump-start their metrology education in an affordable way."
The CMS continues to add value and content for its membership consisting of novices and experts in the portable and traditional coordinate measurement machine (CMM) communities. For decades, the society has been shaping, connecting and educating metrology practitioners with a proud tradition of mentorship. The addition of 3DMU will foster a greater understanding of metrology and its influence on industries such as aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation and more. 3DMU will serve as a career-enhancing resource to learn about best practices, hone performance skills, and stay on top of innovative metrology technologies and applications.
Mold cleaning is just one part of a systematic and comprehensive approach to mold maintenance. Here’s one moldmaker’s strategy for injection mold cleaning and an explanation of where and why different techniques are employed.
