This Blog is part of the Phase II expansion of a joint project with this interactive website ( The National Conference of Standards Laboratories International (NCSLI) 164 Education Liaison and Outreach Committee recently developed a Metrology Career Multimedia DVD, titled “Find a Cool Career in Metrology.” The project has been a joint venture between the American Society for Quality, Measurement Quality Division (ASQ-MQD), Measurement Science Conference (MSC), and NCSLI.

The DVD and this website were designed for use as an outreach tool to reach teachers, students, and high school counselors. They help explain “What is Metrology?” and provide an opportunity to explore Metrology careers. Users learn about the high school courses needed for Metrology, educational pathways leading toward a Measurement Science career, and typical salaries. One of the primary interactive features highlights current Metrologists describing their career experiences, sharing how they got started in metrology, and what they like most about metrology. A collection of measurement science educational resources are provided on the DVD and the website, including many of the Metrology Ambassador tools that have been developed by the 164 Education Liaison and Outreach Committee and other Metrology organizations to make conducting outreach events simple, fun, and rewarding.The electronic exact calliper is ready to measurement

    How would you recommend I quality control the interface side of a dental implant abutment. This would be a Swiss lathed pieced of titanium note the bottom is the critical side and it can be pretty intricate. Accuracy needs are less than 3 microns difference from OEM abutment.

    Best Regards,

    It depends on if you are referring to Egyptian, Sumerian or biblical cubits.

    In biblical exegesis, the Near Eastern or Biblical cubit is usually estimated as approximately 450 mm or 18 in. Therefore there are .0564 mm in one inch approximately.

    Hope you found this answer interesting. Please visit us at;

    Hello, I am interested there a method to calibrate Oximeters? Our body control metrology does not accept verification of slopa electrode and methodology required for calibration. Thanks in advance.
