Less Effort, Lower Costs: Virtual Clamping
Virtual Clamping in GOM Inspect Suite simulates the clamping of parts and allows the user to compute the clamped state using the data of the real part in free state. This step is fully integrated into the GOM workflow and you do not have to leave the proven software interface.
Your Benefits of Virtual Clamping
With virtual clamping, you reduce the costs for fixtures. The multiple design and manufacture of fixtures for individual process steps is no longer necessary. The entire surface is freely accessible for the measurement. You obtain reliable test results that are significantly less influenced by the user and allow for higher repeatability.
New Features of Virtual Clamping
The Virtual Clamping module in GOM Inspect Suite extends the range of applications for virtual clamping to add-on parts such as doors or flaps of vehicles. Furthermore, users can display both the free and clamped state on one report page without having to measure twice.
GOM has developed the Universal Pneumatic Device for gravity compensation that allows users to place parts, especially sheet metal parts, in free state and thus to prepare them for the subsequent virtual clamping process.
