CNC Machine Tool Alignment
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.
If we can measure it we can fix it!
We fix what we find!
Seen here is the Z - Spindle Head of a MORI-SEIKI MV-80, showing the way surfaces needing repair.
Mori-Seiki MV80 Damaged Turcite
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.
Mori-Seiki MV80 Scraping in New Turcite
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 (pictured above) for proper alignment.
Spindle Head Removed On-Site
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.
Precision Alignment and CNC Laser Calibration will
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, even the operator comes into question as to what is causing the rejection. Precision alignment and laser calibration will establish that your machine is performing well within tolerance and you can stop wondering if it is the machine causing tolerance issues.
You have removed one variable from the equation when you know that it is not the machine.
Measurement & Machine Technology can perform all necessary alignment, adjustments and repairs required to bring it back into “LIKE NEW” condition!
When tasked with the alignment and calibration we precision level and align the machine base, check and adjust the gibs to “TIGHTEN-UP” the machine traversing, check squareness between all axes (adjust if required), check parallelism / perpendicularity of spindle to machine axes (adjust if required). Upon completion of the precise mechanical alignments we provide Laser Calibration AND Certification as to the condition of the machine.
When your “OLD” machine is performing like “NEW” you have Taken the Machine Out of the Equation.
Please keep in mind above is only a general procedure we use.
We adapt our machine tool alignment and laser calibration services to the individual machine and specific customer requirements.
