GOM and RGC Engineering conference

New developments in optical measuring techniques for industrial casting processing presented.

GOM, a global industrial company that develops, produces and distributes software, machines and systems for industrial and automated 3D coordinate measuring technology and 3D testing and local partner RGC Engineering held a one day conference in March 2018.

The conference was an industrial meeting platform for design engineers, tool makers, production and quality assurance executives, metrologists, foundrymen and experts from well-known companies and research institutions to learn about the latest developments in optical measuring technology.

Executives from GOM along with their local partner RGC Engineering provided insight into the use of optical 3D metrology in the casting and foundry industry. They also presented examples from the day-to-day practice, showed how integrating optical measuring systems into the entire process chain helps you shorten development times, improve production workflows, and thus enhance your company’s profitability.

Alongside these presentations the GOM Team staged live demonstrations to introduce the latest developments in 3D metrology related hardware, as well as in measurement and inspection software.
