BMTA NEWSLETTER – AUTUMN 2020

BMTA Newsletter Autumn 2020

Welcome to the Autumn issue of the BMTA Newsletter

This issue looks towards the 4th industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0 as it is generally known, and its possible impact on Measurement, Testing and Calibration.

But what exactly is AR, VR, AI and XR and how does it fit within, and benefit, our business? Discover the terminology and how these technologies are being used for manufacturing, product development and training across a wide variety of markets.

Staying within the realm of forward-thinking technology, we also take a look at automated calibration in non-automated devices and how digital multi-meter calibration is being transformed by purpose-built robots. What might this breakthrough mean for other highly manual tasks?

The 4th industrial revolution is already here. This issue takes note of how we can use it to our advantage.
