Verify CNC Machine Accuracy with Machine Tool Calibrations

Avoid Bottlenecks in Your Production Process by Scheduling Regular CNC Machine Calibrations

cnc-machine-toolThe machine tool industry is developing quickly. Initiatives to improve efficiency, and reduce scrap and production costs have created the need to understand manufacturing processes better than ever before. Knowing the capability of machine tools before metal cutting is the foundation of any machining process. Historically, machine tool rotary axes were confined to large machines, or small indexing tables.

Using a Renishaw XR20 Rotary Axis Calibrator coupled with a XL80 linear measurement interferometer, ECM is able to measure all geometric axis in a machine independently and with extreme accuracy. Machine accuracy can then be improved by making targeted alterations to the machine’s assembly using the data to apply error compensation.
