GOM UK Announces Free Workshop for the Casting and Forging industry – “Industrial 3D Measurement Techniques in Casting & Forging Processes”
GOM UK will be hosting their first casting and forging workshop on Wednesday
04 October 2016 at the Gauge and Tool Makers Association (GTMA) based at Seco Tools (UK) in Alcester.
The free event is an opportunity for design engineers, pattern, die and mould makers, as well as specialists from quality assurance and production, to gain insights into how optical 3D metrology is integrated into modern casting and forging processes.
Alongside user presentations, GOM UK’s team of specialists will give live demonstrations to present the latest developments in 3D metrology including measurement and inspection software. Attendees will also be invited to take a guided tour of the Seco Tools workshop including a machining demonstration.
Industrial 3D Measurement Techniques in Casting & Forging Processes
In casting and forging industries, 3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases of the sand, pressure die and investment casting processes: from pattern and die construction to mould and core making, right through to first article inspection reports and optimisation of CNC machining.
Using GOM’s ATOS optical 3D coordinate measuring system, all surfaces of patterns, tools, gravity dies, sand cores, sand moulds, and cast and forged parts can be measured – non-contact and regardless of the object size. Full-field surface measurements guarantee faster first article inspection and targeted tool correction, thereby reducing production lead times. For production and quality control, both the measurements and the evaluation process can be automated.
