Automated Sheet Metal Inspection

The training course is particularly developed for users in the sheet metal industry and deals with common issues of this industry.

Increasing quality requirements as well as high cost and time pressure affect the whole sheet metal industry. In order to fulfill these demands, design engineers, tool makers as well as specialists from research & development, production, and quality control increasingly rely on optical measuring systems. Measuring systems from GOM are used in stamping, bending, drawing, pressing, and forming process chains to guarantee consistent quality assurance: from determining the sheet metal properties, via accelerating tool try-out and first article inspection, up to series accompanying production control and assembly analysis.

Participants are provided with all necessary background information, procedures, workflows as well as tips and tricks required for measuring and inspecting sheet metal parts efficiently. Additionally, the training course includes exercises on creating detailed measurement and inspection plans for first article inspection and series inspection.

In application tasks with real parts, participants practice inspecting parameters such as hole patterns, spring, and trimming in view of the required tolerances with subpixel accuracy. Inspecting cutting edges and analyzing parts with regard to the position and diameter of the hole pattern forms another integral part of the practical exercise. In addition, participants analyze hemmed edges of a part regarding its design specifications and specifications required for the subsequent assembly of several parts.

The exercises are complemented by statistical analyses in trend projects. In this way, participants learn to use the measurement and inspection plan to reduce scrap and wrap-up times in the automated series inspection of parts.
