BCT GmbH, a system supplier founded in 1986, offers solutions to automated manufacturing processes of individually shaped parts particularly in the turbine industry.
Individual shaped parts are parts that are deviated from their original CAD after forging (new part) or engine run(MRO). Although CNC machine already automates the machining process but it is unable to automatically machine individually shaped parts without manual intervention and manual re-iteration.
Their solutions have helped aerospace customers to achieve highly precise, highly reproducible and reliable automated manufacture of their products.
GOM was founded in 1990 as a spin-off of the Technical University of Braunschweig. Today, GOM develops and distributes optical measuring systems with its main focus on applications like 3D digitizing, 3D coordinate measurements, deformation measurements and quality control. GOM systems are used for product development and for quality assurance, material and component testing.
