What fascinates you about metrology?

The accuracy, technology and discipline you must have to work in metrology. Metrology is a field of knowledge that requires full commitment and almost exact numbers. That is what fascinates me.

What role does metrology play at LAMEF?

The role of metrology at LAMEF is to assure quality in research and development projects in the area of oil, gas and medical components such as prostheses and derivatives.

What do you appreciate about working with ZEISS?

Metrology has always been something that fascinated me. When I first came into contact with a CMM from ZEISS, I didn't want to work with any other machine. It was the highest level of technology and precision I had ever seen. And today I am very happy to be able to work with ZEISS CMMs.
