It also referred to measuring the performance of manufacturing equipment. This Special Issue presents a wide selection of papers on novel measurement methodologies and instrumentations for manufacturing metrology, from conventional industries to frontiers in advanced, hi-tech industries. Twenty-five papers are included in this Special Issue. These published papers can be categorized into four main groups, including length measurement, surface profile and form measurements, angle measurement, and laboratory systems. Detailed descriptions of these groups are introduced below. [...]
