    As manufacturing changes, so are manufacturing terms! New vocabulary is constantly being created in this field as it becomes more advanced.

    Have you heard of automated metrology yet?

    Quality Magazine said, "Automating measurement in the manufacturing process itself isn’t new. It’s the how and why related to automated metrology that has evolved. Twenty years ago the primary systems for inline inspection were dedicated gages, specifically made for those operations."

    Automated measurements can increase efficiency in manufacturing. Here's one example and then some projections for this technology

    Automated Optic Metrology

    One example of automated measuring is automated optic metrology.

    Market Research Reporting said, "The automatic optical measuring instrument is a new term in the field of industrial testing and measurement technology. It represents the advanced measurement technology of digital technology into industrial detection and measurement for spatial geometric operations."

    This technology is growing in popularity around the world, - especially in North America, Europe, China, and Japan. 

    Automated Metrology Projections

    Unsurprisingly, the market for automated metrology is expected to grow. 

    Market Research Reporting said, "The global Automated Optical Metrology market is valued at 2560 million US$ in 2018 is expected to reach 3960 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2019-2025."

    Additionally, Business Wire reported, "With the growing demand in the manufacturing industry for quality control, virtual simulations, and inverse engineering, the demand for state-of-the-art 3D metrology machinery in sectors such as aerospace, defence, automotive, construction, energy, electronics, etc. has increased significantly."
