Measurement and inspection standards are traditionally updated on a regular schedule. However, the form measurement standard for out of roundness, B89.3.1, has not been updated since its initial release in 1972, and is no longer an active standard available through ANSI.
Improvements in CMM equipment and developments in model-based software solutions have also helped make the technology more accessible.

Engineers have historically used 2D drawings to convey product manufacturing information, even though they design products in 3D. But as quality control has become even more important, and as parts and components are becoming more complex to measure, the demand for automatic measurement programming has grown.
As manufacturers are gradually tasked with delivering more output with smaller staffs and producing less scrap along the way, quality will help them sustain growth in a downsized manufacturing environment.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the new standard in manufacturing today, deeply affecting the way manufacturers operate. Improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is crucial to IoT. Optimizing OEE requires accurate, up-to-date data across an entire organization, including measurement and test information from both quality labs and the shop floor.
The machine vision professional gains a new tool with SWIR.
March 5, 2013
Short wave infrared (SWIR) machine vision imaging is a key tool in manufacturing and industrial processes to measure, monitor, control or otherwise manage the reliable and quality-conforming production of goods that do not respond well to standard range machine vision cameras.
On Demand A measurement plan is used to convey dimensional specifications from engineering to quality control and manufacturing teams. In this session, attendees will learn how to digitalize their 3D measurement planning process to save time and money.
