Application: Metal Forming

Utilising modern metrology solutions; Scan-Xpress helps manufacturers with: stamping, bending, drawing, pressing and forming process quality assurance. Having access to accurate tools enable you to capture full field 3D data which helps optimise your tool design and production processes. Furthermore, our ARAMIS 3D Camera system can be used to determine material properties and test new forming processes before implementation.

Use 3D scanning to accurately measure metal components, compare to CAD data, and quickly detect defects. Optical metrology coupled with GOM Suite software helps detect manufacturing defects and achieve consistent quality assurance results.

Tool Inspection & Correction

Use 3D scanning to digitise the tool and prototype parts and determine precise values for metal forming tool correction. ZEISS Reverse Engineering tool correction software package can also be used to reduce design iterations using predictive algorithms.

Using GOM 3D scanners and GOM Suite software, you can capture accurate digital twins of your metal components and virtually assemble them accurately predicting component behaviour under stress without complex and expensive fixtures.

Use ARAMIS 3D Camera systems to determine sheet metal material properties with great accuracy. Realistic material properties are a pre-requisite for reliable simulation and optimisation of product variants, tool layout and forming processes.
