Optical Measuring Techniques in Casting & Forging Processes 2014

13th June 2014, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
GOM Italia, Via della Resistenza 121/A, Buccinasco

The GOM Workshop is an industrial meeting platform for design engineers, pattern, die and mold makers as well as specialists from quality assurance and production.

Speakers from leading industrial companies show from firsthand experience, how optical measuring techniques optimize all phases of the production process and increase overall quality.

Alongside these user experiences, the GOM team stages live demonstrations with the following topics:

  • Tracking and backprojection in casting and forging industries
    Part alignment for CNC machining
    Backprojection for material deposition & machining
  • Quality assurance for model and mold making
    Assembly analysis of molds and cores
  • Production accompanying quality control of cast parts
    Automated inspection and trend Analysis

Industrial 3D Measurement Techniques in Casting & Forging Processes

Models and Patterns

  • Verification of milling results
  • Reverse Engineering & change management
  • Maintenance & archiving
  • Full-field shape and dimension inspection
  • Process reliability

Tools, Cores and Molds

  • Targeted tool corrections
  • Inspection of NC machining
  • Assembly analysis
  • Fit of mold halves, core allowance and sliders
  • Wear analysis

Cast and Forged Parts

  • First article inspection (full-field and pointwise)
  • Shrinkage, warp & allowance control
  • Material thickness analysis
  • Optimized CNC machining
  • Automated quality control & trend analysis

In casting and forging processes, 3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases in sand-, pressure die and investment casting: from pattern and die construction to mold and core making, right through to first article inspection reports and optimization of CNC machining.

With the ATOS optical 3D coordinate measuring system, the complete surfaces of patterns, tools, molds, sand cores, sand molds, and cast and forged parts can be measured - non-contact and regardless of the object size.

Full-field surface measurements guarantee faster sampling inspection and targeted tool correction, thereby reducing production lead times. For production accompanying quality control both the measurements and the entire evaluation process can be automated.
