The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announced today Frank M. Foeller of The Boeing Company will be the keynote speaker at the 27th Annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC), July 25 – 29, 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. Foeller is the Director of Tooling Operations for Boeing Defense System, and leader of the Boeing Enterprise-wide Tooling Process Action Team. Mr. Foeller will discuss the benefits realized by The Boeing Company from 3D metrology technology advancements. His conference session is entitled “Portable Metrology Advancements Changing the Game for Tool Fabrication and Aircraft Manufacturing and Assembly Investigation”.
With over 30 years of manufacturing and tooling expertise, Foeller has witnessed the transition from conventional optics to a completely digital environment. Leveraging advancements in hardware and software, the aerospace industry has benefited from efficiencies in fabrication, and the increased capability and accuracy of 3D metrology solutions. Measurement and inspection processes that once required multiple mechanics with a truckload of equipment can now be accomplished with one operator and portable metrology hardware that can be checked in as baggage.
“To remain competitive in the future, we need to invest in the technological advancements and applications of this technology,” said Foeller. “The industry must continue to work together with suppliers, users, and customers to further the progress. Boeing sees this as our greatest responsibility to remain a leader in the industry. The CMSC partnership has been a driving force to make it happen.”
"We are very pleased that Frank Foeller of The Boeing Company will be our special guest and keynote speaker for this year’s Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference," said Talion Edwards, 2011 CMSC Chairman. "This is an excellent opportunity for metrology professionals to view our industry through the eyes of an industry veteran, and gain insight into new ideas and applications that will challenge us to move forward. The Coordinate Metrology Society encourages tooling suppliers from all industries to come hear Mr. Foeller’s perspective, and add their voices to the technical conversations at the 2011 CMSC.”
CMSC caters to users of portable 3D coordinate measurement solutions utilized on manufacturing factory floors or by science laboratories. Attendees are quality professionals who can not afford to rely on yesterday’s technologies or methodologies expert and novice metrologists, manufacturing executives, scientists, students, teachers and more. The CMSC is the place to learn about metrology through a full slate of technical paper presentations, an Exhibition Hall, workshops, industry standards seminars, user group meetings, and networking sessions. Attendee registration is now open at https://www.cmsc.org/register/index.php. Conference details for exhibitors and attendees can be found at http://www.cmsc.org.
