The October issue of Mikroniek, click here for a first impression, features the theme of Precision sensors. It covers the design of a positioning platform for nano-precision high-throughput metrology based on magnetic levitation; volumetric compensation of high-precision 6-axis grinding machines; and a pleading for a total calibration framework for optical surface and coordinate measuring instruments. Off-topic features include Topology Optimisation with thermal constraint for improving the manufacturability of metal AM parts; the nominations for the 2019 Wim van der Hoek Award; and the preview of the Precision Fair 2019, including general info, exhibitor list, floor plan and an innovation display.
