Increasingly stringent quality requirements for castings in terms of surface quality and inclusions necessitate special equipment for quality assurance. An important tool for checking the processes is the edge distance calculation. The edge distance is calculated relative to the nearest reference surface. A CAD-Model is typically used to calculate the edge distance.
With the help of this tool, the negative impact of pores and voids in subsequent machining processes can be checked. Thus the rejection rate of finished parts can be reduced sustainably without the use of destructive inspection methods.
YXLON CT Metrology for foundries helps optimize your process chain, providing inner structure measurements of increased complexity. You’ll enjoy increased value through quality assurance with reliable results based on industry standards including, optimized cycle time for rejection of cast parts, actual / nominal comparison, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, wall thickness measurement, and edge distance calculation.
