International Workshop Series 2018
3D Metrology in Casting and Foundry Processes
Linz, March 22


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 casting and foundry industry. Measuring systems from GOM are used in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes to guarantee consistent quality assurance.  

GOM workshops on 3D metrology in casting processes take place at 43 different locations from January to May 2018.


GOM experts and leading industrial companies share their expertise on processes and metrology in quality assurance.
