International Workshop Series
3D Metrology in Casting and Foundry Processes
January to May 2018
Workshop Series

GOM workshops on 3D metrology in casting processes take place at 43 different locations from January to May 2018. Industrial companies share their experiences and the GOM network transfers process and metrology knowledge in 30 countries. They provide insight into the use of optical 3D metrology in the casting and foundry industry. Measuring systems from GOM are used in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes to guarantee consistent quality assurance.
