Sheet Metal Parts

Inspection of Sheet Metal Parts

The ATOS optical digitizing system is an established system in the inspection of sheet metal parts. GOM has developed special algorithms that are used to measure entire surfaces as well as sharp-edged features with subpixel accuracy. In combination with the GOM Inspect Professional Software package, ATOS is the perfect solution for verification and quality control on sheet metal parts. Typical applications include:

  • Flexible Alignment Strategies (RPS, best-fit, etc.)
  • Full Surface Verification
  • Hole Pattern Inspection
  • Trim & Spring Analysis
  • Online Calibration of Fixtures, Jigs and Gauges

    The ATOS 3D digitizing system is not used solely for geometrical full-field verification of parts and components. The GOM Touch Probe combines optical 3D free-form measurement and online tactile probing within one system. The live inspection of single points supports fast and intuitive online calibration. Combined with the GOM Touch Probe, the ATOS digitizer therefore effectively speeds up the calibration and validation of fixtures, jigs and gauges.

    Wear Control

    The ATOS digitizer is used to monitor wear on active surfaces without removing the tool from the press. Full die surface inspection against CAD or master data during short maintenance periods makes it easier to estimate tool durability and service life. Pro-active wear control results in improved maintenance and repair planning, thus preventing production of scrap parts.

    Press-Machine Analysis

    The GOM ARAMIS online motion measurement system supports dynamic 3D analysis of stamping machines during operation. Measuring bolster bending and deflection, velocities and accelerations, etc., helps to detect and prevent unfavorable oscillation. Dynamic analysis of the press process enables forming machine parameters to be optimized and thus ultimately reduces maintenance and service costs.
