Workshop 3D Coordinate Measuring Techniques in Injection Molding

The GOM Workshop is an industrial meeting platform for design engineers, tool and mold makers as well as specialists from quality assurance and production. The free workshop offers an insight into how optical 3D metrology is integrated into modern injection molding process chains. Leading industrial companies present examples from their day-to-day practice to show how optical measuring systems support them to shorten development times, optimize production processes and thereby improve the company's profitability.

Alongside these user experiences, the GOM team stages live presentations to present the latest developments in 3D metrology as well as in the measurement and inspection software.

Industrial 3D Measuring Techniques in Injection Molding Processes

In plastic- and injection molding processes, 3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases in thermoplastic and injection blow molding: from prototype & tool construction to first article inspection reports through to assembly analysis and load testing.

With the ATOS optical 3D coordinate measuring system, the complete surfaces of prototypes, electrodes, tools and injection molded parts can be measured – non-contact and regardless of the object size. In contrast to tactile measurement technology, this method even captures complex freeform contours quickly and completely.

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.
