Paper Abstract

In view of the dispute on the placement of material sensor when measuring the positional accuracy of a linear axis of a CNC machine tool, this paper presents the method and principle of deciding where to put the material temperature sensor. The positional accuracy of the linear axis of the machine tool is one of the most important performance parameters, and it must be measured when setup and check. The placement of the material temperature sensor has great influence on the measurement accuracy. At present, there are two main views on this issue: one is to place the sensor on the table of the machine tool, the other is to place it on the feedback system. This conflict between these two debates often makes the measurers feel confused and as a result influences the measure quality, sometimes. This thesis attempts to classify the CNC machine tools positional accuracy measurement according to its different purposes, then further presents the best placement. The thesis also elaborates other relevant questions of the placement of the material temperature sensor.
