lecture title: ‘Benefits of metrology in digital and sustainable manufacturing’
Enrico Savio is a Professor of Digital Manufacturing at the University of Padova, Italy, with a research focus on Manufacturing Metrology.
Current research interests include on-machine and in-process metrology, metrology of freeform surfaces and complex parts, and economics of measurements in industry. Within the Precision Manufacturing research group (https://research.dii.unipd.it/tecno), he is coordinating the Laboratory of Industrial and Geometrical Metrology, which has a world-class reputation in advanced coordinate metrology, including computed tomography and metrology of complex shaped and additive manufactured parts. Responsible for contract work with industry, national and international research projects, he is author of five patent applications and more than 150 publications in international journals or conferences.
He is a Fellow of CIRP, in which he served as Chairman of the Scientific Technical Committee “Surfaces”, and was President of EUSPEN – European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology. In 2003, he was awarded the CIRP F.W. Taylor Medal.
