GOM to present latest metrology innovations at Control 2019

At Control 2019 (7-10 May, Stuttgart) GOM will present its latest technologies in the field of optical 3D metrology from stand 3302 (hall 3). Highlights will include: newly developed models of the ATOS series for manual and fully automated 3D scanning; innovations of the ATOS ScanBox series for automated inspection; 3D testing sensors for materials and components testing and forming analysis, including the latest ARAMIS Modular Concept for flexible applications and results in high resolution; the GOM CT computer tomograph for measuring internal structures; and GOM Software 2019 with newly created functions.

The ARAMIS Adjustable measuring system is used for material analyses of parts providing high-precision 3D co-ordinates. Thanks to variable measuring volumes and adjustable measuring distances, the sensor can be used flexibly for different tasks. This versatile system is now also available on a modular basis: users can choose from a cost-effective 2D entry-level version up to a complete 3D system solution, opening up new opportunities in materials and components testing for customer groups with a smaller budget.

GOM will also present an industrial computer tomograph (CT) that provides 3D data of internal and external part geometries in high resolution. Capturing complex components, including their inner structures, in one scan, the system provides the user with a complete digital replica of the specimen for GD&T analyses or nominal-actual comparisons. The CT particularly excels in digitising small plastic and light metal parts.

The GOM software 2019 offers newly devised functionalities for an optimised workflow, which are grouped under the name ‘Smart Teach’. Using Smart Teach, measurement positions are automatically updated each time the CAD or individual elements change.

In addition, the company will be running a trade show programme for representatives of the plastics and casting industries. Directly on the stand, GOM experts will be giving 10-minute presentations on optical 3D metrology.

‘GOM Metrology Live’ for plastics experts will take place each day of the show at 10:00 and 13:00. Subject will include GD&T analysis, toolmaking and electrode production, digital assembly and virtual clamping, quality control in series production and first article inspection, and industrial CT.

Similarly, GOM Metrology Live for casting specialists is scheduled for 11:00 and 14:00 daily. Topics will include: model and toolmaking, mould and core making, GD&T analysis, digital assembly, quality control in series production and first article inspection, and CNC machining and adaptive manufacturing.
