The seminar has been designed to take an in-depth look at the impressive technological developments in this sector. With case studies and interactive demonstrations, presentations will take visitors through the full spectrum of measurement, scanning and inspection equipment available and the various ways it can be used to improve R&D, process efficiency and product lifecycles.

Topics being discussed include: Rapid 3D Measurement of Inner & Outer Structure by Computed Tomography — Dr Martin Simon, Wenzel; Measuring up to the Challenges of F1 Motor Racing — Steve Nevey, Red Bull Racing; The Advantages of DSSP within Aerospace — Steven Fletcher, Geomagic Inc.; Saving Time & Cutting Cost Using Optical Measurement — Andrew Cuffley, GOM UK; and The Conundrum of Detail v Accuracy v Speed — Satish Mysore, 3D Digital Corp.

On the exhibition floor itself, visitors will find the leading experts in this field who will be on hand to give advice and demonstrate live their revolutionary techniques. A host of new equipment will be introduced at TCT Live this year. New exhibitor, 3D Digital Corp, will show together for the first time a laser 3D scanner and White-Light scanner. Making its UK debut on the Carl Zeiss stand will be the new ‘myCalypso’ software with the DuraMax CMM.

Konica Minolta will demonstrate live its recently introduced Range 7 3D Digitiser and the versatile Vi-9i 3D Digitiser. The all new Romer Infinite II portable measurement system complete with Scanshark Laser Scanning System will be displayed by Hexagon Metrology. Wenzel UK will be exhibiting three new products for the first time in the UK — the exaCT CT scanning machine, the new Steintek MobileScan3D, and Pointmaster, demonstrated for the first time as a standalone 3D surfacing software. Meanwhile visitors to Z-Corp will see firsthand the ZPrinter 650 and the ZScanner 700 CX.

For visitors with an interest in Metrology for Micro Manufacturing, a focused technical workshop will also take place in the co-located MM Live show. Also on Day 2 of the show, the Metrology in Micro Manufacturing workshop is being held in partnership with CEMMNT, the Loughborough-based Centre of Excellence in Metrology for Micro and Nano Technologies. The two-hour afternoon workshop, located in the MM Live Conference Auditorium, will give case-study based presentations describing how the latest micro measurement techniques have benefited manufacturing companies large and small.
