Paper Abstract

Accuracy Distribution and Determination is one key step in instrument design and it influences manufacturing cost and final accuracy of machine. So, the analysis about instrument accuracy needs to be paid more attention before manufacturing. Flexible CMM has attracted lots of eyes recent years in the world. This paper gives the analysis result of the flexible CMM. At first, a typical flexible CMM is briefly introduced and the system combines 6 angle encoders and 2 measuring arms and one probe. Secondly, the measuring mathematic model is derived and the error of the parameters of the system is analyzed base on the model. Thirdly, the accuracy of the key parameters of the system have been distributed and determined according to the analysis. Finally, the theory has been approved in a practical flexible CMM. So, the theory of accuracy distribution and determination is the basement of design and manufacturing and it plays a great role in the instrument design.
