Inspection of Sheet Metal Parts

The ATOS optical digitizing system is an established system in the inspection of sheet metal parts. GOM has developed special algorithms that are used to measure entire surfaces as well as sharp-edged features with subpixel accuracy. In combination with the GOM Inspect Professional Software package, ATOS is the perfect solution for verification and quality control on sheet metal parts. Typical applications include:

  • Flexible Alignment Strategies (RPS, best-fit, etc.)
  • Full Surface Verification
  • Hole Pattern Inspection
  • Trim & Spring Analysis

Online Calibration of Fixtures, Jigs and Gauges

The ATOS 3D digitizing system is not used solely for geometrical full-field verification of parts and components. The GOM Touch Probe combines optical 3D free-form measurement and online tactile probing within one system. The live inspection of single points supports fast and intuitive online calibration. Combined with the GOM Touch Probe, the ATOS digitizer therefore effectively speeds up the calibration and validation of fixtures, jigs and gauges.
