Vald. Birn A/S uses two GOM Inspect Professional licenses for measurement and quality control of production samples from our foundry.
We have invested in GOM equipment and software as we believe that the provide time-savings compared to traditional CMM and give us the great advantage of having much more measurement data to analyze.
One of the advantages of using GOM equipment and software is the fact that the measurement operation can be carried out by more than one person. One person performs the scanning and another makes the measurement report. This means that we do not need metrologists for data collection, but only for analysis and report writing. Each production engineer can also analyze the part he is in charge of, without having to know how to operate the scanner.
Having more people involved means that we can use the equipment optimally, and maintain a more flexible process, which is not dependant on one person only. This is a clear advantage compared to traditional CMM processes, where this is typically the case. At Vald. Birn A/S the system will be used for continuous process control (SPC) and thus it is an important parameter that GOM develops fully automated solutions. Finally, GOM Inspect Pro will be used for measuring and monitoring our casting tools.
