Basic Training ARGUS

Basic Training ARGUS

ARGUS is an optical solution for strain analysis in sheet metal forming processes. In this training course, you learn everything about the hardware and measurement. To obtain strain values of the formed object, it is important to create a reference point pattern prior to the forming process. For this purpose, this training course introduces the most common method, electrolytic marking. In addition, you learn all important information and strategies to perform the measurement itself. This includes the camera setup, placement of coded markers, light management and image acquisition.



Learn how to …

  • Prepare the sheet metal part with an electrolytic marking system
  • Set up the camera correctly
  • Place coded markers and scale bars around the object
  • Choose a suitable illumination method to get a good contrast on the surface of the part
  • Choose a good measurement strategy to cover all dots of the object
