New business segment: GOM and data feedback

The most important points:

  • Create scan data with new software
  • Digital replication of real objects
  • More efficient quality control and further development of the tool

There is constant progress and new achievements in technology. In our company we are always looking for innovations, which we can use sensibly in our work in order to become even more precise and efficient in the various areas of our toolmaking. Therefore, Kremann and Esser introduced a major innovation: the creation of scan data via GOM and data feedback. In design, we have been working with computer technology for a long time to create surfaces and volumes, which are converted into 3D components. These graphics not only serve as the basis for the implementation but also help to find the right position for each component. CAD programs have established themselves in the design process in all industries and should therefore not be missed in our company. With the new GOM we go one step further.

With the new software and data feedback it is now possible to convert existing tool parts into virtual models. In other words, the usual design process is reversed. The object is measured by a 3D scan. In the next step, we use this scan data to create a digital construction of the object - a digital copy of the respective component. Based on the models created this way, technical drawings can be generated and further developed. This way, we can use our sophisticated, proven tools and tool components to further develop them for new challenges and areas of application.

By scanning an existing tool and reconstructing it as a digital model, quality control is also accelerated and made easier. With the help of the models, the first sample of a component or tool can be analyzed comprehensively and further developed. Even small inaccuracies or component deformations are detected more quickly by the scan data and we can determine how the structure or shape of the tool parts must be changed. Together with the inspection on the test bench we ensure that every component of a design is produced accurately and precisely and that the final product has no defects in form or function.
