Metronic Organized a Casting and Forging Workshop in Spain

02/2015On 6th November 2014, our Spanish distributor Metronic held a Casting and Forging Workshop in the Automotive Intelligence Center in Bizkaia, Spain.

The trends of industrial 3D metrology in casting and forging processes were presented to some 31 participants, including representatives of enterprises such as Gestamp, Mondragón Corporación Cooperativa and the ACE Group.

To start with, our distributor Metronic permitted detailed insights into the 3D digitizing systems from GOM and thereby illustrated the possible applications and advantages of GOM measuring systems in casting and forging industries. Both, the manual measuring solutions ATOS Compact Scan, ATOS Triple Scan and ATOS Core and the automated measuring solution ATOS ScanBox from GOM were introduced.

In user presentations, speakers from companies such as Matrici, Aurrenak S. Coop. and Fundación Tekniker reported on their applications and on how the ATOS technology helps them to cope with their daily measuring tasks more effectively. After that, Metronic staged in various live demonstrations topics including the virtual assembly analysis of molds and cores, tracking, the inspection of cast parts and trend analysis. In addition, the newly developed application solutions of the current V8 software were shown.

Many thanks go to Metronic for the successful organization of the Casting and Forging Workshop and to all visitors for their keen interest in our products. We are already looking forward to the next GOM event in Spain.
