New aspects in industrial 3D metrology, inspection and testing conference

GOM to present optical measuring techniques for industrial casting processing.

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, will hold a one day conference on 15 March 2018.

GOM, RGC Engineering have organized with the Metal Casting Technology Centre to hold the conference at the University of Johannesburg, Doornfontein Campus Q/K Building, Cnr Siemert and Beit Streets, Doornfontein, Johannesburg, Gauteng. Secure parking has been made available in front of the John Orr Building. The conference will take place in the open plan area around G100. To access enter at the UJ Main entrance and park, then walk through the John Orr Building and over the sky bridge that connects to where UJ’s Resolution Circle is housed.

This will be the first conference that GOM, based in Braunschweig, Germany, will hold of this type of event in South Africa. However, the company holds its internationally recognised GOM 3D Metrology Conference every second year. Over 600 delegates attend this conference that has been held 13 times and they include representatives from OEMs such as Audi, BMW, Opel, Porsche, VW, Boeing, Liebherr-Aerospace and Rolls-Royce.

The conference is 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 will provide insight into the use of optical 3D metrology in the casting and foundry industry. They will present examples from the day-to-day practice, show 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 stage live demonstrations to introduce the latest developments in 3D metrology related hardware, as well as in measurement and inspection software.

New trends in automated quality control as well as recent developments in sensor technologies and software for the entire production process ranging from materials testing through design and toolmaking up to series inspection will also be discussed.

The conference is a must attend for anybody involved in the manufacture or machining of castings. There is no charge to attend.
