3D Metrology for Sheet Metal Forming Processes

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 series-accompanying production 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.

Application Note

GOM Workshops

GOM workshops are an industrial meeting platform for design engineers, tool makers as well as specialists from research & development, production, and quality assurance. They provide insight into the use of optical 3D metrology in the sheet metal forming industry. Leading industrial companies present examples from their day-to-day practice. They show how integrating optical measuring systems into the entire process chain helps them shorten development times, improve production workflows, and thus enhance the company’s profitability. Alongside these user experiences, the GOM Team stages live presentations to introduce the latest developments in 3D metrology as well as in measurement and inspection software.
