Machinery, mold and tool making

Machinery, mold and tool making Application stories

We offer you as machinery, mold and tool making manufacturers the highest quality for your quality assurance or development work. Because of the different available measurement techniques (e.g. fringe projection or laser scanner) you can solve many challenges with the suitable system for you.

In casting, stamping, plastic injection moulding processes, it is critical to monitor phenomena like shrinkage, warpage, springback effect in order to ensure your parts meet critical tolerance requirements. 100% surface inspections of parts and tooling helps in optimizing the iterative design process of tooling and produce parts that are in sync with your CAD. ZEISS Optotechnik 3D scanners offer apt solutions to deal with these situations.
• To produce molds under required tolerances.
• To guarantee customers that the parts produced would meet required tolerances.
• To maintain production reliability by 3D archiving of mold geometry for future use.
• To reduce production downtime when repairing a used mold.

Possible methods of measurement in the machinery, mold and tool making sector Whitepaper

Especially in the machinery, mold and tool making industry the request of quality assurance is growing every day. For this we offer different measurement methods, which also can be combined at yourself and can also be automated.

Rely on the opportunities in the areas of 3D scanning, based on fringe projectionlaser scanning and photogrammetry.

You have the ability with our whitepapers to obtain further neutral information on the topics optical metrology, laser scanning, automated systems.

Our whitepaper will help you get started in our ability based neutral information.

Do you have any questions or want a demo at your place? We look forward to your contact. Fill out our contact form and get the information or call us.
