Optical Quality Control in Sand Casting Processes

The two-day training course is especially designed for users in the sand casting industry. It covers quality control in each individual process step and enables users to better understand and fix occurring problems fast and efficiently.

Today, 3D measuring systems from GOM are often used to analyze casting process chains and guarantee consistent quality assurance: from determining pattern and tool geometries to lost molds and assemblies through to the inspection of cast parts and products.

The training deals with typical errors in the process steps and shows how to investigate them. Moreover, it introduces measuring and inspection workflows, procedures and tips and tricks to master the application successfully. The applications range from root cause analysis and process optimization to process setup analysis and series inspection.
