ApplicationsThe accuracy of optical measuring machines is not due to expensive and high-maintenance precision mechanics, but is rather based on state-of-the-art optoelectronics, precise image processing and mathematical algorithms. A few precision standards and calibration that can be performed by the customer ensure the accuracy of the machine. This also means no loss of accuracy due to wear under harsh conditions. As with the tactile machines, measuring uncertainty is certified with the help of ball bars or step gages.
Over 17,000 GOM measuring systems worldwide ensure the dimensional quality of automotive, sheet-metal, cast and injection molded products as well as turbine blades and wheels. In most cases, the detailed analyses are not used for a simple “OK” / ”not OK” evaluation, but form the basis for the optimization of production and machine parameters as part of a value-added measuring procedure.
