Die & mould applications

nikonmetrology automotive die mould catTool Metal stamping, casting and plastic injection molding are popular production methods for molds and dies. Physical phenomena like part shrinkage and spring back make it difficult to precisely match the CAD geometry.

The iterative manufacturing process can be monitored closely using Nikon Metrology LC or XC laser scanners, which outperform tactile inspection in terms of measurement point count and inspection productivity. Color maps generated in Focus Inspection visualize CAD deviation, providing powerful insight to avoid trial and error.

Tool wear or accidental damage may call for repair rather than
replacement. As original CAD may be outdated or missing, 3D
scanning is a valid solution to reverse engineer the original tool.
