Spectrographic Announce Special Guest Speaker At Forthcoming Seminar

Metallographic equipment experts Spectrographic are pleased to announce a special guest speaker at their forthcoming [Materials Science Seminar], which is being held in association with Mitutoyo, world-leading manufacturers of Micro Hardness Testers on Wednesday 23 October 2013 in Halifax.

Dr Phil Harrison, a Chartered Engineer and specialist in metals and ceramics, will introduce delegates to the ‘Uncertainty of Measurement’ in relation to hardness testing. He will share his knowledge of research and product development and explain how the uncertainty of measurement has impacted on his work.

Dr Harrison is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. He has worked in a wide range of engineering sectors, including in biomedical, aerospace and autosport.

“Uncertainty must be a consideration in the validation of measurement,” commented Dr Harrison. “It is used to assess the quality of a measurement. Measurement is an essential element in high value precision manufacturing to ensure conformance with specification.”

The seminar is being used to launch a brand new [Micro Vickers Hardness Tester] from Mitutoyo’s HM-200 Series. The event is set to attract material scientists from across the UK. Product specialists from Spectrographic will be on hand to demonstrate the machine and to answer any questions from delegates.

“Mitutoyo’s hardness testers allow users to measure the hardness of samples to the utmost accuracy,” commented Paul Chippendale, Managing Director at Spectrographic. “The machines are designed to increase productivity, provide greater accuracy and reduce uncertainty of measurement. Spectrographic’s role is to help customers select the best model for their applications and to provide specialist support and service.”

Mitutoyo is renowned as a leading global brand and as the manufacturer of a comprehensive range of precision measuring equipment and a world-leader in measurement-related technologies. The company has recently published a Quick Guide to Measurement. The guide is an ideal source for all those needing a concise overview of dimensional measurement tools and instruments. It is available to order free of charge. Visit for details.
