01-Feb-2018 GOM UK LTD
On 08 March 2018, GOM UK will host a “3D Metrology for Casting and Foundry Processes” workshop in Coventry. The event is part of an international workshop series, taking place over 42 locations from Asia to America from January to April 2018. The global GOM network established this event series to transfer process-related insights and knowledge to design engineers, pattern, die and mould makers as well as specialists from quality assurance and production.
The free workshop is an industrial meeting platform for exchanging knowledge and sharing experiences. In twenty-nine different countries, GOM and selected speakers show how full-field surface measurements guarantee faster first article inspection and targeted tool correction, thereby reducing production lead times. For production-related quality control, both the measurements and the entire evaluation process can be automated. In addition, the GOM network introduces the latest developments in 3D metrology systems and inspection software.
More information about the event and registration can be found at: www.gom-workshop.com
In casting and forging industries, 3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes: from pattern and die construction to mould and core making, through to first article inspection reports and optimisation of CNC machining.
Optical 3D coordinate measuring systems from GOM allow non-contact measurements of complete surfaces regardless of object size, such as patterns, tools, gravity dies, sand cores, sand moulds, and cast and forged parts.
GOM develops and produces software and systems for 3D coordinate measuring technology and 3D testing. With more than 60 sites and 1,000 metrology specialists worldwide, GOM guarantees professional support and service. Optical 3D metrology is today providing an alternative approach to traditional dimensional inspection tools, improving the product quality and manufacturing processes in automotive, aerospace and consumer goods industries. With no limits on component size, fast complete measurements enable parts to be thoroughly checked and fast, accurate, GOM scans are now an established way of reducing product development times and ensuring highest quality components.

Chips are flying with the HFC 19 high-feed milling system from WNT
In order to meet the requirements of many metal-cutting enterprises for higher feeds and reduced machining times, WNT has upgraded its existing HFC system with a size 19 indexable insert. The new HFC 19 system now enables up to 83% higher cutting depths and feeds that are up to 150% higher.Read More
WNT’s DirectCooling DC-SX grooving system with internal coolant supply
The process of grooving and parting difficult materials exposes the edges of the parting blades to high mechanical and thermal strain. Effective cooling is absolutely necessary, and to guarantee this, the cutting tool specialist WNT has equipped its proven and universally applicable SX grooving system with dual internal cooling channels. The Direct Cooling (DC) system ensures optimal working temperatures as well as ideal chip removal and therefore offers unprecedented process reliability.Read More
The specialist for ramping, plunging and milling
The name of the new plunge milling cutter from WNT says it all: MonsterMill PCR UNI. Not only is it a monster when it comes to process-secure ramping at high angles or with extreme chip volumes during full slot milling, but it also gives materials such as steel, stainless steels and cast iron the shivers, penetrating them with its four cutting edges and patented centring tip.Read More
