Quality Assurance of
Cast Parts


Casting is a complex manufacturing process. Molding, cooling, assembly and machining processes can all influence the shape and quality of the final cast parts. Thus, quality assurance during the complete manufacturing process is necessary, from simulation validation via tool try-out and first article inspection up to production control and CNC machining. However, conventional measuring systems have limitations, especially for complex and large parts. Therefore, a more efficient and reliable measuring system is needed.


ATOS Q can be well used in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes to guarantee consistent quality assurance. During tool try-out, for example, ATOS Q digitizes the full surface of cast parts. By comparing the full-field measuring results to the CAD data, deviation analyses are possible to check for shape and dimensions, thus accelerating mold correction and try-out. ATOS Q is equipped with interchangeable measuring volumes and can be adapted to specific measuring tasks. Using the Triple Scan Technology, the sensor easily captures even areas that are hard to reach and combined with its fringe projection technique the scanner provides very accurate results. In ZEISS INSPECT, deviations can be represented in an easy-to-understand color plot. Additionally, section inspections, check of feature locations and full GD&T analysis are all possible , thanks to the powerful ZEISS software.
