GOM Testing Workshop: Optical Measuring Systems replace conventional Methods

In order to speed up the product creation process, design and test engineers as well as specialists from research & development rely on optical measurement systems. This is what the exchange of experts revealed at the GOM Testing Workshop.

Short development cycles, high cost pressure and increasing quality requirements demand accelerated time to market. In order to speed up the product creation process, companies from the automotive, aerospace, biomechanics and civil engineering sector increasingly rely on optical measurement systems. This is what the exchange of experts revealed at the GOM Testing Workshop "3D Metrology for static and dynamic Component Testing" on 13th November 2014 in Darmstadt, Germany. More than 140 specialists joined the industry meeting.

User presentations of Airbus Helicopters, Audi and the Orthopaedic Clinic and Polyclinic of the University of Rostock demonstrated that optical measuring systems replace conventional methods. Unlike strain gauges, accelerometers, transducers or extensometers optical systems measure geometries as well as three-dimensional displacements and deformations. In this process, capturing static and dynamic deformations is not only based on individual points, but mainly on full-field measurements.

The results allow users to determine input parameters for simulations. Simulation models can also be compared with measuring data in order to choose the right material and improve geometry and manufacturing processes. This speeds up product development, while increasing safety and durability of the components at the same time.
