Paper Abstract

A touch probe is used on a 3-axis vertical machine center to check against a hole plate, calibrated on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). By comparing the results obtained from the machine tool and CMM, the main machine tool error components are measured, attesting the machine accuracy. The error values can b used also t update the error compensation table at the CNC, enhancing the machine accuracy. The method is easy to us, has a lower cost than classical test techniques, and preliminary results have shown that its uncertainty is comparable to well established techniques. In this paper the method is compared with the laser interferometric system, regarding reliability, cost and time efficiency.
