Measurements for Transport
Online — The theme for World Metrology Day 2017 is Measurements for transport. This theme was chosen because transport plays such a key role in the modern world.
We not only move ourselves, but also the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the goods we use and rely on, not forgetting the raw materials they are made from.
Doing so safely, efficiently and with minimal environmental impact requires an astonishing range of measurements.
Indeed more widely metrology, the science of measurement, plays a central role in scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, in improving the quality of life and in protecting the global environment. Continue reading
25-27 October | Novi, MI, USA
Online — At the thirteenth Automotive Testing Expo USA you can see the very latest technologies and services that are designed to ensure that the highest standards are met in terms of product quality, reliability, durability and safety.
Over 300 exhibiting companies will be out to demonstrate that their products are able to help with the ultimate aim of ELIMINATING RECALLS.
These must surely be the drivers of any successful car industry; they represent fundamental features that are uppermost in customers’ minds, and are essential for brand loyalty and brand protection as well as global sales success.
The resurging North American automotive industry is reflected in the fact that Automotive Testing Expo USA 2016 is set to be even bigger and better than in recent years!
