Improving product quality and accelerating product development and manufacturing processes

Precise Industrial 3D Metrology & Scanning

Organizations around the world are improving product quality and accelerating product development and manufacturing processes with precise industrial 3D metrology. GOM develops, produces and distributes software, machines and systems that enable automated 3D coordinate measuring and 3D testing.

Manufacturing Processes

Sheet Metal Forming

GOM measuring systems are used to ensure consistent quality in bending, stamping, drawing, pressing and forming process chains. They’re used to determine sheet metal properties, accelerate tool try-out and first article inspection, perform assembly analysis and more.

Casting and Foundry

GOM measuring systems are used to ensure consistent quality in sand, pressure die and investment casting processes, and allow for inspection planning based on design data. They’re used to perform simulation verification, accelerate tool try-out and first article inspection.

Plastics & Injection Molding

3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases in injection molding, blow molding and thermoforming processes, from prototype & tool construction to first article inspection reports, assembly analysis and load testing.



Used throughout the entire product development process, GOM systems help to:

  • Measure data and provide information regarding material characteristics and part behavior from:
    • crash and fatigue tests
    • climate chambers
    • wind tunnels
    • tire tests
  • Full-field geometry acquisition by 3D scanning provides data for quality control on tools, castings, plastic and sheet metal parts, assemblies and complete car bodies

Used by the aerospace industry and suppliers, GOM systems provide precise part geometries and material characteristics that are used for:

  • Reverse engineering
  • Quality control of complex freeform surfaces
  • Inspection of airfoils or engines, terrestrial gas & stream turbines and turbocharging systems
Consumer Goods

GOM systems are used for all consumer goods production processes, including:

  • Construction and materials testing through tool and mold making
  • First article inspection
  • Assembly analysis
  • Load tests
Power Generation / Propulsion

GOM optical 3D scanners are used in quality control of complex freeform surfaces, making them useful in the inspection of:

  • Airfoils of aircraft engines
  • Terrestrial gas & steam turbines
  • Turbocharging systems

3D metrology helps to identify faulty spots or parts to be replaced, resulting in accelerated maintenance, service and upgrading of turbines.


GOM mobile optical metrology systems are leveraged for quality control in a range of transportation sectors, including:

  • Railway engineering
  • Shipbuilding
  • Utility vehicles
ATOS for Education

"ATOS for Education" is a complete package for theoretical and practical teaching at schools, higher education institutes and universities. The educational package from GOM includes industrial hardware and software for 3D scanning and inspection as well as ready-to-use laboratory experiments and lecture material with detailed background information. In addition, GOM offers a powerful inspection software for students, practical training for instructors and expert support from experienced engineers.

GOM Inspect
Evaluation software for 3D measurement data

GOM Inspect software is used in product development, quality control and production. It facilitates shape and dimension analysis, 3D inspection and mesh processing for 3D point clouds and CAD data sets from fringe projection or laser scanners, coordinate measurement machines (CMM) and other measuring systems.
