  1. International Women in Engineering Day 2022: #ImagineTheFuture

    At the top of the image an array of women of various races, ages and from a range of engineering sectors hold INWED signs. Beneath this on the right side purple text reads '#ImagineTheFuture, #INWED22'. Underneath the text is the INWED logo with the date '23 June 2022' in purple text. Celebrated annually on the 23rd June, International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) endeavours to raise the profile of women working in engineering and encourage more women and girls to pursue a career in the sector. Launched in the UK as National Women in Engineering Day, this campaign was developed by the Women’s Engineering Society to mark its 95th anniversary. The campaign has grown enormously since it began in 2014, receiving UNESCO patronage in 2016 before finding a worldwide following in 2017 and subsequently becoming International Women in Engineering Day. This year’s theme, #ImagineTheFuture, looks to today’s female inventors and innovators; those who will change the industry for the better.[1] To commemorate this, we’ve interviewed Emily Bramble, a young, female engineer, about her experience of the industry and hopes for its future.

  2. What is World Metrology Day & Why Should You Care?

    On the left of the image small white text on a dark grey background reads 'Friday 20 May 2022'. Beneath this date, larger white text on a dark grey background reads 'What is World Metrology Day?'. On the right of the image is a Mitutoyo digital calibre displaying a reading of 49.99. World Metrology Day raises awareness of the importance of metrology and has been celebrated every year on the 20th May since 2000. Organised by the BIPM (International Bureau of Weights and Measures) and the OIML (International Organisation of Legal Metrology), many national metrology institutes and regional metrology organisations around the globe participate in World Metrology Day[1]; for example, in 2021, thirty-six countries hosted World Metrology Day events.[2] Continue reading →
  3. Do you account for gravity when using a Deadweight Tester or Piston Gauge?

    Gravity varies depending on where you are around the world, up to approximately 0.5%. Local gravity correction is typically the largest environmental influence acting on the deadweight tester. When you are carrying out calibrations in your laboratory or on-site the local acceleration of gravity, where the pressure calibrator is being used, needs to be accounted for to ensure calibration accuracy...

  6. Seeing Sound with the Fluke ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager

    On the right a man in a black t-shirt and protective glasses is using a Fluke ii900 to inspect electrical equipment. On the left is a yellow box. Inside it is black text that reads 'Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager. Join the webinar: Introduction to Fluke Acoustic Imagers ii900 & ii910. Nov 11, 2021 10:00AM GMT.' Predictive maintenance is essential for sustaining uptime, reducing repair costs, and maximising profits. Often these routines involve checking for leaks in air, gas, steam and vacuum systems, or partial discharge in power distribution systems and high-voltage equipment. Acoustic imaging provides a simpler, quicker, and safer method of spotting these problems at an earlier stage enabling easier, cheaper, and more convenient repair.[1] Continue reading →
