This workshop offers casting and forging experts from R&D, quality control, pattern/ mold design and construction departments the chance to exchange experiences and gain insights into actual optical 3D coordinate measuring techniques and solutions for the casting and forging industry.

Well-known and experienced users will discuss hands-on experiences. The GOM team presents the actual state of the art of optical measuring systems on live display.

The ATOS 3D Digitizer allows full-field measurement of models & patterns, dies & molds, first articles, cast parts. The fast surface white-light pattern projection system can be combined with a handheld touch probe for inspection of optically hidden surfaces. For production accompanying quality control the data acquisition as well as the data evaluation can be automated.

The ATOS 3D Digitizer is a flexible and mobile optical measurement machine. Rather than tactile touch probing of single points, the ATOS system captures the whole surface geometry with a high-resolution and dense point cloud. For different component sizes and –complexities the ATOS generates precise 3D coordinates for full-field nominal/actual comparison to CAD-data, for inspection sections and wall-thickness analysis and also delivers complete inspection reports.

The ATOS 3D digitizer is utilized in casting & forging process chains as a precise, fast and robust inspection solution. The system combines high-quality measuring data with flexibility and can be employed in measuring rooms as well as in rough production environment.
