Content level 3 CMM

  • Target group: Production metrologists
  • Prerequisites: AUKOM 2 certificate, AUKOM GD&T
  • Learning aims: The seminar offers comprehensive knowledge of production metrology for advanced measuring technicians who work at interfaces with other departments and are obliged to communicate effectively. The didactic approach used in the seminar is based on the latest findings. The content comprises the latest knowledge on function and production-based measuring, filtering, programming, computer tomography, QM and measuring room management. an integrated understanding of measuring jobs and influencing parameters enables experts to communicate confidently with interdepartmental areas and reduce measuring uncertainties, measuring results become more reliable and easier to compare. The minimization of costs and waste is supported.
