Fast and Cost-Effective Toolmaking and Repair 

3D digitization saves time and costs during toolmaking and maintenance. Controlling the individual manufacturing steps at an early stage during CNC machining of pressure die-cast tools and electrodes, wax patterns and ceramic core dies as well as sand core boxes via comparison of nominal and actual data reduces iteration loops, especially for multiple cavities. In try-out, GOM’s ATOS system offers 3D data to target the area for tool correction. 

Applications

  • Targeted tool correction
  • Faster tool buy-off
  • Maintenance and repair
  • Marking of applied material and repair welding

Benefits

Improved planning of repairs by determining lifetime and tool service life. Machining areas on components which demand welding or rework by metal cutting are marked by back projection of isolines from a nominal-actual comparison. Later tool corrections can be easily archived in a digital format. This saves time and storage space.
