    Defects are one of the major issues in auto-parts manufacturing process, it is very challenging for part makers to limit the defect as minimum as possible to reduce its production cost. To achieve this goal, precision matters. However, human eye alone is incapable of measuring with the precision necessary to produce the high quality parts needed, that is a reason why first-rate metrology technology is now more critical than ever.

    It is undeniable that every auto parts you can think of needs to be inspected at one point somewhere along the supply chain. In this regard, Automotive Manufacturing 2018 will organize a “Metrology Zone” to garner leading metrology technology providers together in one area. This is surely where networks will be extended, business deals will be struck and business growth will be multiplied.
