ADAC Automotive - Innovative Engineering with ATOS

ADAC Automotive - Innovative Engineering with ATOS

"[Adopting the ATOS 3D scanners] has been quite the shift. The 3D scanner has evolved from being a tool used to help in certain situations to being used every day.” The numbers prove it. In 2014, ADAC scanned 378 parts. In 2017, that number jumped to over 8,000 parts.

ADAC Automotive first opened its doors in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1975. Back then, the small company was known as ADAC Plastics. Today, ADAC Automotive is a tier-one automotive supplier that focuses on the production of vehicle entry systems, exterior and interior door handles, exterior trim and exterior mirrors for the global automotive market. In 2014, ADAC decided to explore 3D metrology systems.

Measure the unseen with the GOM CT Scanner

Capture 3D Michigan Facility Expansion

Free GOM Inspect 2018 Software Download

GOM Inspect is free mesh processing and inspection software for dimensional analysis of 3D point clouds from structured blue/white light scanners, laser scanners, CT scanners and other measuring devices. The software is entirely free to use and results can be shared between departments, vendors, and/or with customers for faster communication to help speed up the decision making process. GOM Inspect 2018 contains all of the evaluation tools necessary for extensive analysis of parts and components. It is independently tested and certified by German and American national measurement laboratories (PTB, NIST). The accuracy of the evaluation software is verified by comparing the results obtained from the software with reference results. GOM Inspect has been placed in class 1, the class of the smallest deviations.
