1. A Sensor-Based Method for Diagnostics of Machine Tool Linear Axes
Topic: Metrology
Published: 10/24/2015
Authors: Gregory W Vogl, Brian A Weiss, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: A linear axis is a vital subsystem of machine tools, which are vital systems within many manufacturing operations. When installed and operating within a manufacturing facility, a machine tool needs to stay in good condition for parts production. All ...

2. Additive Manufacturing Round Robin Protocols: A Pilot Study
Topic: Metrology
Published: 8/12/2015
Authors: Shawn P Moylan, Joshua Land, Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: As the number of users of additive manufacturing (AM) steadily increases, and considering their demand for material and process specifications, the need for standard protocols for round robin studies is increasing accordingly. Researchers at the Nat ...

3. Development of an Ultra-Pure, Carrier-Free 209Po Solution Standard
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/23/2015
Authors: Ronald Colle, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Lizbeth Laureano-Perez
Abstract: Ultra-pure, carrier-free 209Po solution standards have been prepared and standardized for their massic alpha-particle emission rate. The standards, which will be disseminated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as Standard Re ...

4. Literature Review of Mobile Robots for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8022
Topic: Metrology
Published: 5/6/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Mobile robots are devices that can move autonomously to accomplish their goals. This paper provides a review of such robots, mainly oriented towards manufacturing applications. It describes the kinds of mobile robots that are used and what criter ...

5. An improved L1 based algorithm for standardized planar datum establishment
Topic: Metrology
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: This paper has two major goals. First, we present an algorithm for establishing planar datums suitable for a default in tolerancing standards. The algorithm is based on a constrained minimization search based on the L_1 (L1) norm after forming a conv ...

6. Performance Metrics for Evaluating Object and Human Detection and Tracking Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7972
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/31/2014
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford, Tsai Hong Hong, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: In this report, we provide an overview of various performance evaluation metrics for object detection and tracking for robot safety applications in smart manufacturing. We present four different types of performance evaluation metrics based on detect ...

7. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan D Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian John Long, Thomas F. Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...

8. Fiber orientation angle effects in machining of unidirectional CFRP laminated composites
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/13/2014
Authors: Viswanathan Madhavan, Gary Lipczynski, Brandon M Lane, Eric Paul Whitenton
Abstract: Experiments were carried out at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in collaboration with The Boeing Company, to obtain force and temperature data as a function of feed, speed and fiber orientation angle (FOA), for validation of finit ...

9. Uncertainty in Measurement of the Maximum Cutting Tool Temperature by Infrared Thermography
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/13/2014
Authors: Brandon M Lane, Eric Paul Whitenton, Viswanathan Madhavan, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the uncertainty in measurement of the peak temperature on the side face of a cutting tool by infrared thermography. An analytical method uses the temperature measurement equation to study the uncertainty arising f ...

10. Control Fusion for Safe Multi-robot Coordination
Topic: Metrology
Published: 5/9/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: Future smart manufacturing systems will include more complex coordination of mobile manipulators (e.g., robot arms mounted on mobile bases). The National Institute of Standards and Technology, Performance of Collaborative Robot Systems Project has b ...
