Circular Interpolation causing a problem.
Egg Shape? Scallops? Oval? Off Center? Wrong Size?
Just not right.
So! You can't circular interpolate ROUND holes?
There is help!
Many factors can stack up to give you these symptoms.
1. Backlash - (scallops)
2. Ball screw end play - (shape, scallops, location)
3. Positioning accuracy - (location, size, shape)
4. Loose gibs - (shape, scallops)
5. Squareness - (oval)
(There are more!)
When you program a circle the machine tool attempts to accelerate, decelerate, and reverse directions all at the proper time, if you have any or all of the above conditions, proper hole size, finish, and dimensions will be impossible to achieve.
Measurement & Machine Technology can identify the problems and will remove the conditions that hinder the machine from achieving properly machined round holes; thus eliminating costly multiple “finish pass” cutting, part program editing, and even boring bar usage to achieve round holes.
We have years of experience eliminating the mechanical and electronic problems inherent with incorrect circular interpolation and other machine tool errors. Now in a matter of hours using laser measuring equipment and our experience we can eliminate yours!
