The Measurements and Metrology Lab is well-equipped with precision measurement instruments such as a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), profile projector with QM Data DRO, and a portable surface roughness tester from Mitutoyo, the Japanese company. With an accuracy of 1 to 3 micrometers, the equipment in the lab caters to the educational, research, and industrial needs of the RUAS community.
