Plastic Components

Shape & Dimension Control

GOM's optical non-contact measurement systems support fast, easy and full-surface testing of door linings, trims, dashboards, bumpers, fenders, etc. Incoming parts from suppliers can be inspected in order to identify batches with problems or inconsistencies. And since it makes warp and bending immediately visible, full-surface metrology is also used for full gap and flush analysis on movable parts in the troubleshooting process.

Deformation Analysis

More and more car parts are made of plastic and rubber materials.

Fast and non-contact 3D measuring techniques are required to examine the mechanical behavior of moving or safety-relevant parts in operation.
