A laser system is used to check the machine's positioning accuracy along the length of travel for each axis. Leadscrew compensation and backlash compensation
parameters are updated to insure the best possible accuracy and repeatability. Ballscrew condition is mapped and information can be used for predictive / preventative maintenance. Scrap and machine downtime are minimized and the accuracy of machined parts is improved. Rate the performance of your CNC machine tools and win machining contracts from your competitors.
Laser Calibration can be performed on new machine installations to verify machine accuracy, or it can be performed at defined intervals to track machine capability and wear.
Laser Calibration should always be performed after a machine crash or whenever any part of the positioning system (ballscrew, coupler, motor, encoder, scale, linear guides, etc.) has been adjusted or replaced.
