The GOM workshops on 3D metrology in sheet metal forming will take place at 23 locations from January to April 2017. The global GOM network established this event series to transfer process-related and metrological knowledge to design engineers, tool makers as well as specialists from research & development, production, and quality assurance around the world.
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 production quality control and trend analysis. GOM systems provide precise material parameters by determining the Forming Limit Curve (FLC) for design and simulation. During try-out, sheet metal parts are checked for shape and dimension as well as material defects: component geometry, spring-back, trimming, hole patterns, material thickness, and forming limit analysis. For the series-accompanying quality control, all measurement and inspection processes are automated.
The free workshop is an industrial meeting platform for an exchange of knowledge and for sharing experiences. In fourteen different countries, leading industrial companies show how integrating optical measuring systems into the entire process chain helps them shorten development times and improve production workflows. In addition, the GOM network introduces the latest developments in 3D metrology as well as in measurement and inspection software.
