TopMap Day

How do you decide on an appropriate method for measuring and characterizing surfaces? What is the easiest way to determine flatness, parallelism, form and surface parameters and step heights? What are the advantages and disadvantages of different procedures in everyday work? Polytec‘s TopMap Day focuses on these and other questions in a personal exchange between speakers and participants.

During the practical session, our PolyXperts will advise you on your individual measurement task and analyze any sample you bring with you, after which we would be happy to issue you with a measurement report. If possible we would appreciate you send us your sample in advance to the address below with the subject “TopMap Day UK”.

The workshop is aimed at metrologists, laboratory technicians, quality assurance staff, developers, quality managers, production planners and project managers. The number of participants is limited from 10 to max. 20 people.

The course is offered free of charge. You will receive a certificate of attendance, workshop documents, your personal measurement report, and catering during lunch and coffee breaks are included. Travel and accommodation costs are to be paid by the participant.

Registration deadline is 12th June 2020
