Casting and Foundry

Measuring systems from GOM are used in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes to guarantee consistent quality assurance: from simulation verification, via accelerating tool try-out and first article inspection, up to production control and CNC machining.

GOM systems allow for inspection planning based on design data. In pattern and mold making, the targeted correction of tools and models and the inspection of fitting of mold halves, cores and sliders are possible. During try-out, cast parts are checked for shape and dimension: part geometry, material thickness, shrinkage and warpage. All measuring and inspection processes are automated for production quality control.
