GOM: Controlling Casting & Foundry Processes with 3D Metrology

GOM: Controlling Casting & Foundry Processes with 3D Metrology

Newcast / GIFA 2019 | Hall 13 / Stand 13B04


At the leading international trade fair for casting and foundry technology in Düsseldorf, GOM presents the latest technologies in the field of 3D metrology and inspection. GOM measuring systems are used in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes for continuous quality assurance: from simulation validation and acceleration of tool try-out and first article inspection to production control and CNC machining. 

Accelerate production start – Save rework time – Reduce rejects with 3D metrology
GOM systems enable inspection planning based on CAD data. In pattern, tool and mould making, tools and models are specifically corrected and the fit of mould halves, cores and slides inspected. In the try-out phase, cast parts are checked for shape and dimensional accuracy: component geometry, wall thickness, shrinkage and distortion. Measurement and evaluation are automated for quality control during series production. 

GOM Break–Out Sessions (60 min): Casting and Foundry Process Optimization Through 3D Metrology
The 60-minute break-out sessions are aimed at experts from the fields of simulation, design, pattern and model making, tool & mould making, core making, foundry and CNC machining including tasks of quality assurance, production and development. All participants from sand casting, die casting, investment casting and–, gravity die casting manufacturing processes with prototypes or series production can benefit from the break-out session.

Topics GOM Break–Out–Sessions (60 min):

  • Geometric validation of patterns, tools, molds and cores
  • Slope analysis and verification of milling results
  • Provision of warpage, shrinkage and sink marks
  • Digital assembly & wall thickness optimization
  • Quality control and first article inspection during series production
  • Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
  • CNC machining and adaptive manufacturing
