Sheet Metal Forming


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 assembly analysis.

Quality control in sheet metal forming processes

  • Material Properties/FLC
  • Design / CAD
  • Simulation & Forming Limit Analysis
  • Tool Making, Testing & Machine Capability Analysis
  • First Article Inspection
  • Series Inspection
  • Assembly & Fixtures
  • For design and simulation, GOM systems provide precise material properties by determining the forming limit curve (FLC). During try-out, sheet metal parts are checked for shape and dimensional accuracy as well as for material defects: part geometry, springback, trimming, hole patterns, material thickness, and forming limit analysis. For the series-accompanying quality control, all measurement and inspection processes are automated.
