GOM GmbH, headquartered in Braunschweig, Germany, has launched a new international student competition on 3D scanning. To enter the competition, students must prepare a lab experiment using GOM’s ATOS 3D scanner by June 30, 2017. An expert jury will evaluate all experiments with the winner, or winning team, receiving the GOM Education Award and €3,000 prize.
GOM develops, produces and distributes software, machines and systems for 3D coordinate measuring technology and 3D testing. By offering the GOM Education Award, the company stated that it aims to support practice-oriented education in the field of 3D metrology.
Full-field 3D scanning has become established as an industrial standard in reverse engineering and quality assurance. Furthermore, it forms the basis for Industry 4.0, as the complete 3D digitisation of parts is a prerequisite for autonomous quality assurance.
In order to support teaching at vocational schools, universities and universities of applied sciences, GOM also developed the educational package ‘ATOS for Education’. Besides the industrial hardware and software for 3D scanning and inspection, the package also includes elaborated lab experiments as well as lecture material. In addition, GOM offers ‘ARAMIS for Education’, an educational package for applications in the field of materials and components testing.
