Ball Bar and Laser Calibration
The Renishaw QC20-W Ballbar is widely recognized as one of the finest CNC machine tool diagnostic / analysis tools available today; good news is that we are experienced in its operation and use. Ballbar analysis of your machine tool by our experienced technicians will not only help satisfy your quality documentation but give you the knowledge that your machine can cut good parts. We can perform the analysis and if by chance a problem is found we can use our equipment and experience to adjust and optimize your machine, thereby giving you complete confidence that your machine will produce good parts. In a very short time Ballbar Analysis of your machine tool by our experienced Alignment Technicians will show you the condition of your machine.
Do It Yourself Self-Test
When you have questions about why your machine is producing scrap you need some basic information about the condition of the machine itself. You can machine a “Master Template” that you can inspect and try to make sense out of what is causing scrap parts. Our “Self-Test” procedure might be a place to get started. When you decide to have the machine aligned and calibrated we would appreciate an opportunity to help.
Evaluate it, then Dominate it!
Ball Screw Tensioning for Thermal Growth and Accuracy
Thermal growth of your ball screw can wreak havoc with your finished part accuracy. Variation of machining accuracy during normal operation can be caused by length deformation or “Thermal Growth” of your ball screw. If you are constantly editing your program, work coordinates or tool offset during your work day; you might just have a ball screw that needs to be re-tensioned. If you have the skilled manpower, I have included a basic procedure to do the ball screw tensioning yourself. If however you do not have available maintenance technicians we would welcome the opportunity to do it and laser calibrate your machine as well.
Rotary Axis Calibration
