Measurement solutions for cast & forged parts

OGP measurement for cast & forged parts

Casting and forging are processes that have different advantages but are largely used to create heavy duty parts with metals.

While both processes are well-maintained and optimised, they are not completely immune from possible errors. The casting process requires close metalworker observation to avoid defects while forging is less prone to voids and defects occurring due to surface porosity but limits the complexity of parts, and requires more post-processing to adhere to exact specifications.

Why use multi-sensor measurement for cast & forged parts?

Preserve part quality

Cast and forged parts often have delicate or sensitive surfaces that can be easily scratched, dented or deformed so non-contact helps to preserve the surface integrity and finish of the part, ensuring that it meets quality standards.

Conquer complex parts

Often complex shapes with intricate details, multi-sensor measurement can capture complex geometries, ensuring precise dimensional analysis and quality control without the need for multiple probe adjustments or repositioning.

High-speed measurement

Rapidly capture data from the entire surface of a cast and forged part, including multiple features and dimensions, in a single scan or measurement cycle. This significantly reduces inspection time and increases overall throughput.


Confidence in quality

Outside factors can put parts out of tolerance, be it issues with the materials, machinery, moulds or human error. Avoiding these parts slipping through to production is crucial and a good quality control process works to eliminate that possibility. OGP measuring machines allow businesses to measure parts more efficiently than ever, with the capabilities to combine the full benefits of coordinate measuring, 3D laser scanning and optical measuring for full coverage and accurate verification of parts in seconds.
