The Position Analyzer was designed as a sister product to the Position Inspector, for applications where machine size or layout requires a specially defined measurement artifact. Geometric deviations are determined by measuring a calibrated ball beam or artifact made to order. The measurements are performed by our patented and self-centering Trinity (wireless) or Triton (wired) probe that measures X, Y and Z coordinates simultaneously.
The probe has a large range, enabling a simple setup without alignment procedures. A ball beam measurement takes only minutes and returns all aspects of the positioning accuracy, repeatability and straightness deviations directly of numerically controlled axes.
The systems offers:
- Simple set-up without alignment procedures delivering accuracy comparable to a laser interferometer
- Measurement in minutes of the positioning accuracy and straightness deviations.
- Easy definition of user defined measurement protocols for in-depth machine characterization, such as reversal error, backlash assessment.
- Absolute measurements for machine acceptance test qualification
