Project description

Nowadays enterprises develop towards intelligent, precision and green energy actively for pursuing new product value. The industry 4.0 from automation to intelligent would be a critical field among all industry. The transducer sensing technology should be an important key for intelligent machine sensing and actuating properly. Technology of acoustics, ultrasound and vibration technique are largely applied in manufacture condition monitoring. However, due to lack of facilities, techniques, experience and expertise, this metrological service is not well established in Asia Pacific region. CMS/ITRI has accumulated certain experience on how to support the needs from machine tool industry by applying metrology into related fields, for example ultrasonic and acoustics measurement on spindle of machine tool. Therefore, we strongly initiate this project including interesting NMIs in APMP (such as KRISS, NMIJ, NIM, NMIA, NIMT, A*star, RCM-LIPI, NMIM, etc.) to disseminate and exchange their relevant technical knowledge and know-how about acoustics, ultrasound and vibration in machine tool industry.

Main outcomes:

This project aims at sharing technical know-how and valuable experiences of calibration service in this field and providing some Industrial technical guidance and training courses to participants from regional economy members. Furthermore, on-site technical visit to machine tool manufacturer and lab hands-on training of calibration are also arranged. This three days workshop hosted in Taiwan were surely benefit attendees in both metrological knowledge and practical skills in the field of acoustics, ultrasound and vibration for developing intelligent machine of Industry 4.0.


Totally 52 participants, among which 18 attendees from NMI of 7 countries: China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and Viet Nam, 12 Attendees from 6 Sponsors, they are JOIN-STAR Trading Co., Ltd, King Design Industrial, Samwell Testing Inc., Prowave Engineering Inc., INSTECH Instrument Co., Ltd., Chinese Metrology Society. Spectris Taiwan Limited, and 22 attendees from 18 organizations in Taiwan.


The three days workshop were connected by two keynotes, and five sessions and the two laboratory visits. For the technical sessions, seven topics were given from experts from four NMIs, and another 5 topics were from 5 researchers of companies, institute, and university.
