Ballbar Analysis, Laser Alignment and Laser Calibration will improve the performance of your machine tool, improve your product quality, and improve your bottom line. Utilizing ballbar analysis, the accuracy of our laser measurement systems, combined with the reliability of our conventional measuring tools we can completely analyze your machine tool, precisely adjust the alignments, laser calibrate the positioning accuracy, and certify the results!
Here you see just one example of our Laser Calibration Services in action. NIIGATA USA contracted us for Laser Analysis and Compensation of the Positioning Accuracy (including Backlash) on all axes of the newly installed HN80-D Horizontal CNC Mill and supply the customer a "Certification of Accuracy"; immediately following receipt of our certification the customer completed the purchase.
We have many years of hands on experience (since 1982) with alignment and calibration on an extremely large variety of machine tools, and do not have an affiliation with any one manufacturer, or specialize on any certain make or model of machine. Basic principles of machine design cross all lines. Therefore, we can align and laser calibrate all of your CNC machine tools and give you the complete CERTIFIED results.
We Fix What we Find:
If we can measure it we can fix it!
During a typical alignment and laser calibration job it is not unusual to encounter a machine with "hidden" problems. Having worked on a very large assortment of machine tools we can efficiently identify the problems and overcome them as necessary.
This started out as an alignment and laser calibration. As you can see (previous photo) the TURCITE is damaged, after we properly replaced the turcite it was hand scraped in (pictured above) for proper alignment.
During the work on the spindle head we removed the X, Y, Z ball screws and sent for rebuild and reinstalled. We verified the final GEOMETRY and laser calibrated the machine to finalize the project.
Take the Machine Out of the Equation.
When you are machining parts “OUT OF TOLERANCE” it becomes a guessing game as to what is causing the rejection. You must eliminate potential sources one by one; the fixture, part program, cutting tools, material, and yes even the operator becomes your focus as to what is causing the rejection; if you know that your machine is performing well within tolerance, you can stop wondering if it is the machine. You have removed one variable from the equation when you know that it is not the machine.
GEOMETRIC ALIGNMENT AND CALIBRATION are critical issues when it comes to producing precision-machined parts. Measurement & Machine Technology can perform the necessary alignment adjustments and repairs required to bring it back into “LIKE NEW” condition!
When your “OLD” machine is performing like “NEW” you have Taken the Machine Out of the Equation.
When tasked with the alignment and calibration we precision level and align the machine base, check adjust the gibs to "TIGHTEN-UP" the machine traversing, check and adjust squareness between the axes, check and adjust parallelism / perpendicularity of spindle to machine axes. Then we provide Laser Calibration AND Certification as to the condition of the machine.
Please keep in mind above is only a general procedure we use.
We always adapt our machine tool alignment and laser services to the individual machine and specific customer requirements.
